Description

Amongst the hundreds of wineries across Mendoza lies a small, family-owned winery called Hacienda del Plata. For those who want to experience the 100-year-old history of the Mendoza region, this family-owned homestead is a quintessential Argentine vineyard that’ll give you an authentic look into the Argentine winemaking tradition.

When you visit the vineyard, you will instantly feel the warm, welcoming atmosphere of the Gonzalez family. A member of the family will be waiting with open arms to guide you through the vineyard, showing you what makes their grapes and operation so unique. You will then be invited to taste the wines for yourself, directly from the tank and oak barrels, allowing you to compare how the age and fermentation methods affect the flavors. After enjoying the delicious wines, enjoy another Argentine delicacy - a chocolate medialuna (Argentina’s version of the croissant) paired with wine on the veranda.

Enjoy the scenic view along with your tasty treats as you take in the warm atmosphere of the family home. A short and sweet winery experience, this tour is the perfect stop along your winery route to take in the authentic customs and history of Mendoza.

The Gonzalez Family

We are the Gonzalez siblings - Juan Pablo, Nicolas, Rosario, and Ines. Born and raised on our small, family-owned winery, Hacienda del Plata, we pour most of our time, energy, creativity, and love into our family business everyday, all in the hope that we can bring out the true personality of our vineyard’s grapes.

The hacienda has been in our family for over 100 years and has been the center of our family’s history. It's where generations have grown up and raised families of their own. It’s been the location of significant family milestones, from yearly harvests to weddings and family reunions. We invite you to become a part of our family traditions while experiencing authentic Mendoza wine. Everything at the vineyard is run and operated by us — we pick the grapes, we mix the blends, we tend to the vines, all in the hope that you can taste not only the delicious flavors of each of our wines, but also the care and love that has gone into making them. We welcome you into our home to learn all about what makes Hacienda del Plata so special.
