What you'll do

Upon arrival, we will go directly to the small vineyard surrounding our winery to spend a lot of time learning about grape growing and the challenges of doing so in a high mountain dessert like the one we live in. Afterwards, I will give you a brief tour of the facilities thoroughly explaining how our fruit processing and winemaking differs from other wineries. You will be able to see first hand our barrel room and the temperature controlled warehouse we use to store our bottled wines before going into the fermentation and conservation area of the winery where you will experience a unique and guided tasting provided by Cristian and/or myself, straight from the tanks!
During this process you will be able to clearly taste and learn the different aspects of Malbecs, and Cabernet Sauvignon, grown in different areas as well as getting a taste of a unique grape variety, almost extinct, that Cristian grows with his father Raymond Stanislas Allamand.
Should you choose to do so, we can finish the experience with a full tasting of finished bottled wines also guided and explained by one of us.
Other things to note
Our winery is located 25 kms outside the city of Mendoza and while we are secluded, we are very close to many other wineries so we suggest you plan ahead and take advantage of visiting us to visit other places nearby and make the most out of your day. We are happy to make suggestions if you need.

This was an amazing experience. We’ve been on wine tours before but this was one of the best. He helps you to truly understand how wine is made and specifically how it’s made in Argentina. The vineyard is beautiful and the wines are even better. We absolutely loved our time on this experience and would 100% recommend it to anyone visiting Mendoza. It’s a must!!

A very unique experience, very different from anything available in the area. It is a perfect complement of commercial visits to other wineries and puts a lot of things in perspective. Martin was super knowledgeable and captivated us for a few hours.

A very unique and educational experience. If you have a free afternoon while in Mendoza, take a visit to Martin's farm/Bodega. You will find yourself (over a 2-3 hour "tour") part of a lecture, a discussion group, in a laboratory, and, if course, a participant in the "hands on" experience of tasting different wines. Martin's communicates his passion about his winemaking process exuberantly and honestly. Go see for yourself.

This is a great experience for anyone in Mendoza. I enjoy wine but don't know much about it and this tour changed that a lot! Martin has a fantastic knowledge of wines around the world and the history and evolution of wine. Martin also explained a lot about the vineyards which I found very interesting. We tasted many wines and Martin was great at explaining the differences between these. Overall a great experience that I would highly recommend to anyone!

If you are looking for a wine tour to do in Mendoza, this is it. Martin is fantastic at explaining his craft, conveying his own passion and making sure that it is all authentic. The winery is hard to get to but Martin was in contact with us from the get go and arranged a ride for us with other attendees thus splitting the cost. The entire experience really gives you an insider look to how wine is made, a unique perspective on the small grower business side & the current state of wine in the world. You also get the chance to buy some wine direct from the supplier at the end as weall.
