Historic MDZ Wine Country Chalet

Villa - Entire home/apt · Alberti, Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina

The Space

Bodega Calle is located in Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina. The main house and winery were built in 1925 by Claudio Erice and sit together on the same property. The house is marvelous with huge vaulted ceilings, original antique tile and hardwood floors. It has a living room, a large parlor, a huge ballroom, a full kitchen, one fireplace, one wood stove and an outside wood fired "asado" grill. There are 2 private suites in the house and up to one bedroom more in the guest house. The main house includes 3 full private bathrooms and up to 1 private bathroom more attached to the guesthouse.

Bodega Calle was brought back into production in 2001 and is just adjacent to the main house. The winery's award winning brands are Alberti 154 and Ca' de Calle. The house is located in Drummond, Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza and is the best possible proximity to wine country as you will save about a half hour each way to the wine tasting destinations you choose each day. You will be in the heart of the "wine area". Also, for an extra fee, we can prepare certain meals you might like to have ready after a long day out and about. Bring your family or friends for an wonderful experience you will not soon forget.

  • We had an unbelievable stay. It was our favourite accommodation in South America over 10 weeks. Lovely home and gracious and very helpful hosts. We organised the asado cooking class with Nico and really enjoyed it. Wonderful place, highly recommended!

  • We had an amazing stay at this property. It's a perfect spot to have a home base during a visit to wine country. A few wineries are just around the corner, the bus station is close and staff helpful. Also it's very secure and we felt very safe the whole time.

  • El lugar fue de plena aceptación mía y de mi familia...todo muy bien preparado y de lujo.

    Antes de ir a Mendoza, nuestra intención era ir por única vez a ese lugar. Sin embargo, el estar estos días en la casa, nos quedaron ganas de volver, para lo cual ya estamos haciendo planes.

    Absolutamente recomendable.

    Gracias a Dolores, Fabiana y los chicos, quienes nos atendieron a la perfección.

  • TODO, hasta el más mínimo detalle fue tenido en cuenta: direcciones de cómo llegar, comunicación constante durante el trayecto hasta recomendaciones de qué hacer durante la estadía! Gracias a Dolores Jardel, nuestra anfitriona, por su gentileza, amabilidad y carisma, disfrutamos de 5 días preciosos.Una experiencia maravillosa y muy recomendable para parejas y familias . La casa es muy amplia, con áreas de esparcimiento y muy bien equipada. La mesa de ping pong: genial! Hay 3 perros grandes, amigables y juguetones que nuestros niños adoraron. La verdad que no molestan para nada, excepto por algún que otro ladrido de noche. La parrilla: excelente y los vinos diarios un detalle que agradecer . La cocina está muy bien surtida bien con lo que uno necesita y más. El acceso a la casa es fácil y cerca de todo.

  • wow! absolutely outstanding! bodega calle was the perfect place to base a trip to mendoza wine country. the bodega is situated within walking distance to several wineries, is within easy driving distance of the regional vineyards, and offers a respite from downtown mendoza, the bodega itself is spacious and beautiful. we felt as though we had walked into the setting for a novel. best of all were our gracious hosts, dolores and kirk. kirk made sure we were well informed about which wineries to visit. dolores left no detail unattended during our stay, turning the bodega into our home. we were absolutely treated like family, not just guests. we cannot say enough about how wonderful our stay was, and we cannot wait to return.

  • Very nice unique place in private city bodega you don't find elsewhere!

    It was a special and convenient location to stay with our small group. It s very spacious and has it s own vineyard in the garden. (complex and vineyard is surrounded by walls, and located in the middle of the village lujan)
    The 3 bedrooms and the 3 bathrooms are basic but well cleaned and the complex as a whole is well equiped with some special details

    Note that being able to manage dog is a MUST. Especially when you are leaving the complex with a car alone, it will be almost impossible to stop the dogs escaping and having to chase them on the streets (especially when they are not fed and hungry)The friendly dogs have access to all the areas outside, so when you come home they will always visit you with enthousiasm which might be threatening for some.
    Also, it's a shame for the lovely garden that you always have to share your playtime and food with these 3 friends!

    + = private parking, unique complex, spacious, price/quality, dolores,
    - = nothing too serious, but expect: dogs, musquitos, equiped as a 3star hotel, the alarm is not that easy to manage, + a car is needed to make your stay more fun!

  • This little winery is beautiful, and the home has great character. We stayed over a long weekend, but the staff that we did meet on the first day were very helpful. The complimentary bottle of wine each day was a nice touch and the wine is very good. We also made good use of the table tennis table. The dogs were friendly, but hard to keep outside, and it was so hot you wanted everything open, so that was challenging.
    The things that took the shine off our stay, were the noise at night, the security system, and the small beds. Noise is often unavoidable in a built up area, so you can make allowances for that ... the security system was frustrating and turned us off going out at night ... it was hard to set, and sometimes went off for no reason, and it was just a hassle that we hadn't been prepared for. The double bed was small, and the single beds had wooden ends, so for an adult male, really difficult to sleep in. A couple of queen beds in the main house would have been great. We could have used the room on the other side, but it was small and had no fan, so was way too hot. We could also have moved the double bed into the main house, but our friends didn't want to move it in and then back out when we left (early departure).
    I guess it's good to have guests in the house, as it's added security for the winery, but perhaps some thought could go into making the rooms in the middle of the house (the tasting room and lounge room) into bedrooms, because then you wouldn't get so much noise at night. A better security system might also be in order.

  • We really enjoyed the wine Chalet. It was just as described. The place was nice, Dolores was extremely helpful. It is centrally located for touring the wineries. They have 3 dogs which we enjoyed, but I feel compelled to disclose that in case you don't like them.

    It was very spacious and the wine was delicious from Alberti 154! It is in the city so there is street noise/ dog barking at night but overall Dolores was absolutely great and a nice place to spend time touring the area.

  • We had an excellent time staying in Kirk’s Historic MDZ Wine Country Chalet, “the Bodega” as we referred to it for three nights. I stayed with my wife, another couple and two additional friends – 6 of us total. The Bodega perfectly accommodated all of us and we certainly appreciated the WiFi, laundry, huge dining room, and ample bathrooms! The building was very charming and gave us a slower pace a compared to a city which the group was looking for. Some other reviewers had commented on the dogs so we were aware they would be there and we found them to be quite receptive to us and fun to play with. We had no issue whatsoever with them. If you do not have a car rental, I’d recommend scheduling transportation ahead of time with Kirk/Dolores. Taxi cabs were hard to come by which may have been because of a holiday we were unaware of during our stay. The best part about our stay easily was the Bodega’s manager Dolores. Dolores was extremely attentive and helpful, leaving no question unanswered and offering additional recommendations of places to go to eat, things to see, shop etc. She arranged our reliable transportation to and from the airport and she also facilitated our private asado which our group agreed was one of the best meals and experiences of our entire South American trip! I highly recommend staying here!

  • We enjoyed our stay at MDZ Chalet. It allowed us to explore the area's wineries and visit the city center but gave us a nice place to come HOME to. The group enjoyed the local area and used the grill to make most of our evening meals.
