Mendoza Wine Tour with Lunch

Wine tasting in Mendoza

Set off on your wine-filled day in Mendoza by air-conditioned minivan, heading to the Luján de Cuyo area, where you’ll visit your first winery. Luján de Cuyo sits in the upper Mendoza valley, where the elevations of around 3,280 feet (1,000 meters) help produce wonderful malbec, cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay.

When you arrive at your first winery, meet a member of the winery’s staff, who will tell you about the winery’s history and architecture. Learn about the winemaking process and how to appreciate the different wines, and then enjoy your first wine tasting!

Back in your minivan, head to your second winery, admiring the breathtaking scenery of vineyards shadowed by the Andes mountain range. At the winery, hop out for another wine tasting and chance to learn more about winemaking in the renowned Mendoza region.

You will visit Navarro Correa, Luigi Bosca and Altavista wineries plus a visit to Pasrai Olive Oil Factory. Enjoy a lunch of regional specialties at Pic Nic.

We had an awesome time. Visited 3 vineyards and an olive oil factory. The vineyards were beautiful, and each tour/tasting was very informative. The tastings were great and the guides took the time to explain the proper way to taste wine. Our picnic lunch at the last winery was amazing and in a beautiful area. We had a great day!

Probably one of the best tours I had in my 2 week vacation of Argentina. Our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke great English. The wine tasting experience was fantastic and I also enjoyed my time learning about the produce of Olives at the factory. Great company too. Would strongly recommend this tour.

This is a great tour. The guide was enthusiastic, friendly and spoke excellent English. We visited 3 wineries of various styles and an olive oil factory. The tastings were good quality and we bought wine from one. The lunch was a picnic of empanadas and a steak sandwich with wine which we ate in the gardens of a winery under the olive trees - very peaceful and pleasant. Small group tours like this allow you to get to know your fellow travellers and we met some interesting people on this one. It is good trip and well worth the money.

Excellent experience. The tour guide was great. The tours (two wineries and one olive oil plant) were insightful and the tastings were great. The lunch at the last winery was excellent as well. The van was on-time and air conditioned. Highly recommended.

The tour guide was great, and the wineries were fantastic! The highlight might have actually been the last stop which was the lunch. Both the food and wine were incredible.

An activity-packed day as you visit 3 bodegas and an olive oil factory. The first bodega is one of the most commercial (owned by Diageo) and focuses more on how to taste wine properly. The second bodega is a much better tour as it is a much more traditional, family-run winery. In our opinion, the wines at the second bodega are much nicer. The olive oil factory visit isn't a long tour as the olive oil is all made in one room, but the tasting is good. Some of the oils are lovely and this was actually the only part of the tour where we were compelled to buy some of the products! The final bodega that you visit is purely for lunch, i.e. no tour, but it really is a beautiful setting for a meal! On top of everything else, Mariano he tour guide was fantastic! His English was flawless and his banter with the group really made the day. A great day out and we were done in plenty of time to catch our evening flight!

Brilliant tour with a fantastic tour guide, Emiliana. All of the wineries were beautiful and the staff did a good job of speaking to everyone in Spanish and English. The lunch was enjoyable and more food than we were expecting (3 course lunch) but it would have been nice to have more than one option.

What fun this was!!! Plenty of wine and when our guide realised I don't drink red, she managed to get me extra sample of white instead. Visited one vineyard with tasting, then went to an olive oil factoy with tasting, then onto our second vineyard with tasting, and at the third we sat outside with a glass of sparkling wine, and were then asked whether we wanted a half bottle of red or white with our picnic lunch. By the time we left we were all a little tipsy, but having a great time. We were the only English on the trip, but the guide spoke English and we got by with the other revellers. The mini bus back into Mendoza was the most hysterically funny trip I've ever had, with everyone standing in the aisle of the bus singing and dancing. Really good fun.
