What to do in Mendoza?
The wineries in Mendoza are in the main regions, Lujan, Maipu and The Uco Valley. There are lots of different ways to visit the local wineries. In general, all wineries require a reservation in advance. Several wineries have excellent restaurants which serve lunch - a superb way to complete a day of winery visits.
How to visit?
Staying at Finca Adalgisa means we're here to help you! We can recommend, explain, organize and make reservations for you at the wineries you want to visit, and organize the day just the way you like it.
One option is visiting wineries in the area around the Finca by bicycle. We rent e-bikes (subject to availability) and make reservations at the nearby wineries. We can give you a map and point you in the right direction!
Another option is to drive yourself. We can organize a rental car for you and give you directions to get to the wineries. [most rental cars are equipped with a satellite navigation system. Alternatively we can organise a car with a driver who will drive you around to the wineries we select together. You don’t have to worry about getting lost or drinking and driving. For each of these options, you can choose how many and which wineries to visit. We can help you to choose or, if you know where you want to go, make the reserva tions for you. A final option is to go on an organised wine tour. You'll visit 3 or 4 wineries, chosen by the agency, in a small group (max 8 people). It’s a full day (from 9am to
approx 17pm ) and is an all-inclusive package: transportation (pick up and drop off at the Finca), a guide, winery visits and tastings and lunch are all included.
There are basically two main wine regions - Alto Río Mendoza Valley (Maipu & Lujan) and the Valle de Uco o Uco Valley. Here at Finca Adalgisa, we're located in the Lujan area. East of Lujan, is Maipu. And
approximately 100 km south is the Valle de Uco. In general, Lujan and Maipu are the more traditional wine regions with more history with great views of the Andes. In the Valle de Uco, wineries are generally newe
and more modern. The views from the Valle de Uco, with the majestic Andes Mountains so close, ar incredible. It's possible to visit both of these beautiful regions over two or three days.
Wineries charge around USD10 to 30 per person per visit. A lunch in a winery costs around USD50/60 per person. Some wineries do not accept credit cards so we recommend you bring cash as well as your cards. A
car plus a private driver cost around USD150/220 for the day. And nally, the option to go with a wine tour agency costs around USD180/300 per person
