Organic Wine Tour

This is a rare opportunity to visit the heart of some great organic vineyards, and meet the people behind them. With a beautiful countryside, great food and good humor on hand, know that you´ll be taken care of. You will return with heightened enthusiasm to discover the world of organic wine, not to mention some great stories to tell.

Think green and prepare for an amazing tour in Uco Valley. The visits will begin in the vineyards where organic farming will be introduced followed by a continued explanation inside the wineries where you will see the whole chain of production from the pressing machine to the steel tanks, from the barrels to the filling bottle machine. After all is said and done you will understand the difference between the organic method and the conventional technique of wine making.

First, you will visit MASI Winery, a heaven for native flora and fauna. Masi has integrated its own techniques into the winery and created an eco-sustainable reality in which an important oasis of biodiversity is maintained in the context of organic agriculture. Care and respect for the environment are part of the Masi company culture and philosophy. Their wines born out of this unique culture combine the exuberance of Argentinean nature with the attractive style and elegance of wines from the Veneto, Italy.

On our way to our next stop, we will take a detour for some scenic views of spectacular vineyards and fruit orchards of the beautiful Uco Valley. Once we arrive at The Vines of Mendoza resort, we will visit a beautiful family winery: Super UCOThere we meet one of the Michelini brothers who will explain all the process to make a great biodynamic wine, focused on the pure soul and terroir of the Uco Valley, specifically Gualtallary and Vista Flores districts. This boutique, biodynamic project is the first of its kind in Mendoza with very limited production of top quality, terroir driven wines. The two hectares farm is planted in circles with 360 degrees of exposure to the sun. The different varietals are planted from the center outward, as its vegetative cycle dictates-cutting edge, meticulously crafted Argentinean wines.

We continue west along the rolling countryside to get to Domaine Bousquet, a highly awarded organic wine producer. The winery is dedicated to farming organically while improving their land’s biodiversity. They really think the healthier the vineyard, the better the fruit will be and of course, the wine too. Organic agriculture and production helps to protect and sustain the land and the environment for future generations.

This is the ideal tour when you're looking for an experience that goes beyond ordinary. On a clear day you really can see forever. Expansive only begins to describe each view which is surpassed only by the next mountain pass vista!

We will return to Mendoza by 6:00pm.
