Day 6 - Mendoza
Free day for leisure in Mendoza or why not choose to do this optional activity(extra cost) – Premium Uco Valley Wine Experience - Author wines tastings and the opportunity to enjoy excellent food and rest in boutique hotels at the Cordón del Plata foothills are the passwords of this new viticulture and viniculture pole located 90 km away from Mendoza’s capital
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.
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. 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). 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 which is surpassed only by the next mountain country vista!
Overnight at Lares de Chacras
