What to expect
  • Your full-day wine tasting tour begins with pick-up from your central Mendoza hotel by private vehicle. Having discussed your itinerary in advance, your guide will have everything arranged for your custom-made tour, so all you have to do is sit back and soak up the scenery as you drive through the vineyards of the Mendoza wine region, set against a dramatic backdrop of the Andes mountains. Along the way, listen as your guide explains how the region’s unique soils and ideal climate have led to the production of some of Argentina’s most renowned wines. Arrive in the Lujan de Cuyo region on the northern banks of the Mendoza River and stop at the first winery of the day. Take a peek behind-the-scenes on a 1-hour tour of the winery (own expense), followed by an expert-led wine tasting. Savor your first taste of Argentina’s world-famous Malbec and learn more about other grapes grown in the region, such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Continue to the next winery and gain an insight into the wine production process as you tour the winery (own expense) and enjoy a second wine tasting. If you visit during the harvest months (February-April), you’ll get chance to see the de-stemmer machine that separates the stems from the grapes, and watch the harvest workers hand-selecting the grapes as they move along the conveyer belt. On arrival at the third winery of the day, your host will be waiting to welcome you for a delicious lunch (own expense), paired with more fine wines, after which you can enjoy an optional tour or wine tasting (own expense). After lunch, there’s just time to visit one more winery, where you can stroll the vineyards, indulge in wine tasting (own expense), and learn more about the fine art of grape growing and cultivation. At around 5pm, arrive back in Mendoza, where your tour ends with drop-off back at your hotel. Please note: This tour is fully customizable and the choice of which wineries to visit (depending on availability) is up to you. Suggested options for winery visits include: Achaval Ferrer, Altavista, Matervini, Casarena, Bressia, Dominio del Plata, Dolium, Ruca Malen, Norton, RJ viñedos, Bonfanti, Kaiken, Vistalba, and Clos de Chacras.

Carlos was phenomenal! We decided to book this a few days before we got to Mendoza and boy were we lucky! Carlos was so entertaining and informative. He took us to three wonderful wineries where we got different perspectives and a intimate tour and tasting at each place. Definitely the highlight of our trip to Mendoza. I would definitely book this again.

Four of us traveled to Mendoza during their wine festival. We hired Mauricio for a couple of days of private wine tours, along with transportation to and from hotels and restaurants. While Mendoza was wonderful, our driver made the experience exceptional. He took us to little-known, but excellent wineries. He scheduled an exclusive lunch and even took us to visit a local artist with extraordinary talent. Don't pass up this experience!

Classy, competent, intelligent, belligerent
Ever wonder what it would be like to visit exotic wineries, enjoy amazing food, and traverse the Mendoza valley in the base of the Andes? You could do it on your own, but you could also technically give yourself a haircut. Don’t go cheap on this once in a lifetime opportunity, hire this guy and get a first class experience. You must do this! Mauricio was amazing, such an intelligent and interesting guide. The wineries we visited were second to none. We hit up Ruca Malen, Viamonte, Budeger, Domaine Bousquet and more. The drive was beautiful, the vehicle was nice (we had 6 couples), the two days we went with Mauricio were fantastic. He took us to large wineries and small. He gave us great advice along the way. We found ourselves discussing culture and history, cracking jokes, awed in amazement at the vistas and then (later in the day) passing bottles of wine around the van/bus blasting music on the way home. Do this if you want to have fun. If you want to learn the best secrets of South America, and discover wines we cannot get in the US. Mauricio, the owner, will not disappoint you. This is first class.

THE BEST DAY EVER!!!
Apr 2019 • Couples
I found Mauricio through a couple of blogs I read that recommended him. We went on our tour TODAY and I had to make it a point to write an excellent review as soon as possible!

Mauricio has absolutely made our time here in Mendoza! He was super responsive from the minute I emailed and all I had to do was give him dates, # of people and pick a region and he handled EVERYTHING which is amazing!!!

He picked us up right on time from our hotel and arranged his van so that our group could face each other and talk on the ride around. He taught us all about the history of Mendoza on the way to Luján. The wineries he picked had impeccable service, beautiful views and amazing tours! For lunch he set us up with a private chef and a four course meal that included an empanada making class at our last winery!! It is my boyfriends 30th birthday and they even made him a birthday cake with candles! He had the best birthday imaginable!!

We will never forget what an incredible experience we had in Mendoza all thanks to Mauricio! Do yourself a favor and book with him!! Only thing I didn’t like about to the day was we forgot to get a group picture with him in it! :(

Great Day
Jan 2019 • Couples
We had an excellent day with Mauricio's colleague, Fernando. He arrived promptly at 9am to pick us up, spoke fluent English, and was extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout the day. I'd done some research beforehand and emailed back and forth with Mauricio discussing which wineries to visit in the Lujan de Cuyo region, and he was always extremely quick to reply, and share his thoughts and advice. We were really happy with the wineries we visited, each very unique and fascinating in their own way, and had an outstanding lunch at Ruca Malen in the most beautiful setting. All in all, a really fun, relaxed and interesting day and a great way to visit the wine regions in style - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend booking a tour with Mauricio and his team!

Great Wine Experience
Jul 2018 • Couples
We booked a one day private wine tour with Mauricio based on the overall excellent reviews that were offered. From the very first email inquiry to the time he dropped us off at our hotel, I have nothing but good things to say about Mauricio. Everything was delivered as promised. He picked some very good wineries for us to visit and the lunch he scheduled was fabulous. I would not hesitate to book another tour with Mauricio when we return to the area.
