Today explore Luján de Cuyo wine region, the cradle of Argentina’s wine renascence. 

We start the tour visiting Bodega Alta Vista, one of the largest family-owned wineries in Argentina. Alta Vista’s mission as “Terroir Expression Winemakers” is to illustrate the very best expression of the different Argentine terroirs. Through their groundbreaking work with terroir and varietal management, Alta Vista became the first Argentinean winery to produce and compare several single vineyard Malbec wines, each representing the unique characteristics of their four Mendoza vineyards.

Next stop will be at Bodega Bonfanti, a boutique winery located in Perdriel, Lujan de Cuyo. Since he was a child, Roberto Bonfanti, son of Italian immigrants, took interest in the cultural works of the vineyards. His passion and dedication throughout the yearscan be appreciated nowadays in his awarded wines.Meet the owners and walk their lovely vineyards as they share their passion for this activity that their predecessors have passed on.

For the grand finale, we continue for an insider foodie experience at La Vid, the main restaurant of Bodega Norton. Dishes are inspired from authentic recipes, regional cooking techniques, and the fantastic ingredients. A selection of premium wines complements each course.
