Uco Valley. The Next Napa . It's still possible to get a feel for what Napa was like before the hordes arrived... A superb wine region with high altitude vineyards and mountains. It is tempting to the senses!
Uco Valley, where there are 300 sunny days a year and the cold nights invite to curl up in front of the fire, is the birthplace of much of the Argentine wine which conquers followers throughout the world.
Journey a little farther south to the village of San José and drop in on Bodega Salentein. Respectful of the land´s vibrantly textured past, Salentein is equally inspired by the land´s remarkably promising future. It is this delicate balance of old and new- of blending the tradition of long-celebrated European winemaking methods with the bold ingenuity of the New World- that defines the Salentein style.
We continue south along the rolling countryside to get to Bodega Andeluna. Andeluna would look quite at home in a remote part of Texas as a hunting lodge. This is not accidental, Andeluna has deep roots in Texas. The winery was founded in 2003 by Ward Lay (son of the founder of Frito Lays - the parent of Walker crisps). Mr Lay died in 2011 and the winery is now owned locally. Situated at the foot of the Andes just outside of the town of Tupungato in the Uco Valley, Andeluna has magnificent views of the mountains. The huge windows of the dining room are designed to take advantage of the effect, allowing us to enjoy the view as much as the food. All recipes are fully made of natural products, which are grown in this exceptional place.
On a clear day you really can see forever. The view is clear along mountains. Expansive only begins to describe each view wich is surpassed only by the next mountain country vista !
Return over the scenic, rolling hills back to Mendoza.
Have a look at the video to get a taste of Andeluna Winery...
