What You Can Expect

Mendoza Wine and Olive Oil Tasting Tour with Dinner

Sample olive oil at Club Tapiz

Discover why the wines of Mendoza are enjoyed around the world. Your journey to the heart of this acclaimed winemaking region begins with pickup at your Mendoza hotel in the early evening. Travel in a comfortable minivan to the historic Clos de Chacras winery, which has been producing excellent wines since 1921. Tour the estate’s underground cellar and taste three different varietals, including the acclaimed Cavas de Crianza blend of merlot, malbec, and cabernet sauvignon.  

Continue on to the nearby Club Tapiz, a beautiful property featuring a restaurant, hotel, winery and olive oil factory. Enjoy stellar views of the Andes and surrounding vineyards, and tour the olive oil factory housed in a historic building. Learn how the estate’s olives are grown on 80-year old trees, then harvested and pressed to make the highest quality oils. Taste for yourself with a sampling. 

For a delicious finale, settle into a table at Terruño, the rustic yet elegant Club Tapiz restaurant. Savor a gourmet four-course meal of regional cuisine such as lamb-stuffed ravioli, perfectly grilled steak, locally produced goat cheese and olive tapenade, paired with estate-made wine. (See Itinerary for a sample menu.) 

After dining to your heart’s content, relax on the return drive to your Mendoza hotel.

3 star rating: Worth doing November 2015

Very good tour overall. I often find the wineries visited on these types of group tours are terrible, but this one was very good. And the guy at Kaiken winery who led the tasting was great. The olive oil tour at Club Tapiz was really interesting if a bit long, and the tasting was fun. The dinner experience was good overall. But, 5 or 6 people at the table ordered the pasta and we all found it absolutely inedible. It tasted like someone had poured a pound of salt into each dish. It was pretty gross. Also, our tour guide for the evening didn't do anything but drop us off and pick us up. We were VERY lucky to have another group do the Club Tapiz tour with us, because the main tour guide from the winery spoke no English. If the other group's amazing bilingual guide had not been there, we would not have understood anything. This is the reason I didn't give the tour four stars.
