Description

A coveted destination by winos around the world, the up-and-coming Uco Valley has been dubbed the “next Napa Valley.” One of the trendiest places to visit in Argentina, the stunning valley lies right in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, providing visitors with both magnificent views and incredible wines.

Let Local Guide Peter, a former winemaker, take you on a one-of-a-kind tour to this valley’s best wineries. You will visit three wineries that each produce their own distinctive styles of wines in unique ways. Here, Peter will teach you about a variety of grapes and production methods, all while you have fun drinking the wines from these innovative, world-class wineries.

To really understand what makes these vineyards so special, you will get to meet the people that make these delicious wines possible, including the farm workers, winemakers, and owners. After private wine tastings at two of the vineyards, you will enjoy another highlight of Mendoza: its incredible food.

With the backdrop of the beautiful, mountainous Uco Valley, indulge in a gourmet 5-course meal with wines specifically selected to complement each course. The perfect tour for wine connoisseurs and novices alike, this full day will give you a real understanding as to why the Uco Valley is one of South America’s top wine destinations!

Growing up in Mendoza, wine has always been a big part of my upbringing. For example, when I was just 7 years old, my dad would pour a drop of wine in my sparkling water as part of a family tradition to introduce me to the taste. Later, when I was 16, my family opened a wine shop where I helped out and first learned the ins and outs of the wine world. While I eventually went to university to become an engineer, I could never keep myself away from the wine industry.

At age 23, I got a job at The Vines of Mendoza, a top tasting room in the city's downtown. There, I not only became an expert wine taster, but I also got to watch people react and fall in love with different wines as I have. Seeing the pure joy they experienced really reaffirmed my passion, and so I dropped out of engineering school to work as a sommelier in Barcelona and Andorra.

After experiencing life as a sommelier, I wanted to try another aspect of the wine world, so I returned to Mendoza to study to become a winemaker. Since then, I have worked in the wine industry for over 14 years in every way I could. I’ve sold it, taught it, tasted it, and made it. Now it’s time for me to do what I do best: share it. Out of everything I’ve done, my favorite is showing people my world of Mendoza wines. I love watching people fall in love with its different flavors, helping them learn how to taste it properly, and, most importantly, seeing them have fun with it!
