Cooking Classes Uco Valley

Our cooking lessons are about much more than a list of ingredients and how to cook them. Everyone who enjoys quality time with fine wines and food should enjoy these tours. Step off the beaten path and discover Mendoza through its food!

Eating like a local is an important aspect of getting an accurate look at a culture. What is perhaps even more rewarding than eating like a local is understanding the ingredients and care that goes in to the preparation of our traditional cuisine.

Our first visit will be to Bodega La Azul. Tiny is the impression you have as you drive up to this winery. It is hard not to look around wondering where the rest of the cellar is. A single stark building, not much larger than other winery´s garages is all that is required to make some of the finest wines in Argentina.

Hosted by one of the winemarkers, we´ll taste their Cabernet and Malbec wines, which have grabbed much attention for their distinct personality and excellent value.

We continue to enjoy a really hand-on cooking class at Bodega Andeluna. Their cuisine philosophy is of constant change. It combines the freshness of the products of each season and the delights typical of our country, inviting you to savor the flavors of Argentina’s seven regions.

Today, learn with their chef how to prepare traditional recipes like "empanadas mendocinas” in the clay oven, meat and vegetables on the open fire with fresh chumichurri sauce, among other specialties, which then, we’ll taste during the lunch along with a selection of premium wines that complements each course.

Return to the hotel by 5.30pm.
