Mendoza Harvest Festival

At the height of wine production, the harvest season, has been the perfect excuse for celebrating the grape, the land and the labor devoted to it. For a whole weekend, we propose living this unconditional love that people feels for their land and for the wine.

Day 2, March 9th: Wine Tasting Day + 2019 Grape Harvest Festival

This small group tour is designed to share and enjoy an excellent day of wines. We will visit some of the most important and renowned wineries of this region. Trapiche Winery represents "the richness of diversity.” Over the course of its history, this winery has always understood the strength of viticulture in this country, specializing in obtaining the best of the terroir, creating unique wines. We continue to Bodega Sin Fin, a family owned winery by local Mendocinians - a modern proposition in a completely remodeled building from 1937.

Finally we visit Bodega Familia Zuccardi. This family company was founded in 1963 by Engineer Alberto Zuccardi. In those times, he began planting vines in Maipú (province of Mendoza), experimenting with an irrigation system of his own creation based on a method used in California. Forty five years after the starting point of this path, there are three generations joined by a passion for wine. In September 2015, the prestigious magazine DECANTER acknowledged José Alberto and Sebastián Zuccardi as being among the five most influential personalities of Argentine Wine. We continue for lunch at Pan y Oliva, one of two restaurants located at Familia Zuccardi, known for its fresh take on pastas, salads, tapas, with the incorporation of olive oil. We’ll head out into the dining from to enjoy lunch and house wines.
