Mendoza Wine Route

Texts: Marcelo Sola, Cristina Bozzoli - Photos: Palmiro Bedeschi

Due to the extension of the Province of Mendoza, it is necessary to divide it into zones, according to their significantly different weather, height and soil characteristics.
High Zone of the Mendoza River: with heights ranging from 800 to 1,100m over sea level and various microclimates, this is a zone where almost all noble varieties of wine have easily become adapted. Malbec outstands.
Northern Zone: zone suitable for fruity white and young red wines, with a height from 600 to 700m.
Eastern Zone: with a height ranging from 600 to 700m, this is the most productive wine zone in the province.
Uco Valley: this is a zone of colder weather and higher altitudes (between 800 and 1,400m over sea level). The largest part of the vineyards is located on the Pre-mountain range slopes. Wines with very good acidity are obtained.
San Rafael: with heights ranging from 450 to 800m. In 1993, the San Rafael Origin Denomination is implemented.
The Province of Mendoza is the most traditional area in the viticultural industry and the wineries settled there deserve an independent chapter each. It is impossible to talk about Mendoza without mentioning each one of them: López, Valentín Bianchi, San Telmo, Escorihuela, Cavas de Weinert, J&F Lurton, Trapiche, Flichman, La Rural, Norton, Félix Lavaque, Lagarde, Navarro Correas, Nieto Senetiner, Goyenechea, Chandon. You can tour the Mendoza wineries and vineyards either by a private and customized tour or by joining any of the pre-arranged Wine Tours offered.

Ruca Malen

Ruca Malen

Agrelo - Luján de Cuyo

Website
Ruca Malén Winery was created in October 1998, as a result of the dream of a group a friends who shared the same passion: making premium quality wines. Jacques Louis de Montalembert and Jean Pierre Thibaud resolved to base this project on their professional career and experience as far as the beverage business is concerned.
The search for quality was present at every landmark in the winery: the decision regarding its location and its architectural design, the selection of the team, the choice of technology to be used and the excellence of service provided to visitors. Essentially, though, as regards the management, care and treatment of the vineyard, where the great wines made at this venue start, hand in hand with wine expert Pablo Cúneo.
Ruca Malén`s style is translated into elegant complex balanced wines that highlight meals. Aromatically, this feature turns into an intense and fresh fruit profile with a certain degree of complexity that comes from wood but without aggressiveness.
Navarro Correas

Navarro Correas

Godoy Cruz - Mendoza

Website
Founded in Mendoza, the history of Navarro Correas Winery dates back to 1800, when Juan de Dios Correas planted his first vines at the foot of the Andes.
Ever since the mid nineteenth century, and for over a hundred years, the Correas family has sold their grapes and wines to other producers in the region.
Nevertheless, it was Edmundo Navarro Correas, a descendant of the Correas family, who resolved to produce wines under his own name.
In May 2004, Navarro Correas inaugurated its new winery at Godoy Cruz. Surrounded by a lawn and fully integrated to its scenic environment, the whole building features a minimalist architectural style that reinforces the traits of the materials used.

Visit Options

The winery offers several options for visits and wine-tasting sessions. Each of them is a customized experience and implies the same kind of passion we have used to create our wine lines.

This option is free of charge and it is available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 10am, 12pm or 3pm. Prior reservation is required. Ask about other days and timetables.

Bodega Séptima

Bodega Séptima

Agrelo - Luján de Cuyo

Website
Bodega SEPTIMA is the Argentinian winery owned by Grupo Codorníu in Argentina. Of Catalonian roots, it belongs to the Raventós family, who have been making wine ever since 1551 and own eight wineries in Spanish territory, one in Napa Valley, California, USA and SEPTIMA in Argentina. The latter is located in Agrelo, Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza, at the foot of the Andes. The winery has a production capacity of 3,000,000 bottles. It was built using the pirca technique, used by the Huarpes to raise walls and houses. It consisted in piling up natural rocks.

All its vineyards are irrigated by assisted dripping, which enables the accurate control of humidity in the soil through sensors and the necessary adjustments in each area, thus guaranteeing an accurate winegrowing process.

Visitors to the winery have the chance to have lunch on the terraces of Restaurant María by Graciela Hisa. A prior reservation is required. Besides, during the summer season, the winery offers a program called Atardeceres (Sunsets) on the terrace which consists in the best sunset in Mendoza while enjoying excellent wines -including sparkling varieties- and local cuisine.

Agrelo - Luján de Cuyo

Website
Our winery was built in 1915 taking advantage of the uneven ground, thus managing to make grapes access the winepress through the top level of the building and making wines rest at the lowest basement, thus providing the best temperature and quietness conditions for it to rest.

The winery is characterized by its typical construction, featuring gable roofs made of cane and reinforced concrete pools presently covered with epoxi painting.

The building is inside the venue, which shortens the distances between the harvest point and the winepress process. All this is translated into the quality of the wine.

We choose to make wine in the traditional way, accompanying and managing the natural process of grape fermentation. Without being invasive, taking care of each stage and making the most of the virtues of our vineyard and grapes, we succeed in obtaining the typical complexity and feautres of our varietals.
