After pickup at your central Mendoza hotel in an air-conditioned minivan, head south out of town towards Maipú. Watch out the window as the urban landscape makes way for rolling vineyards and verdant farmland.
Stop at Trapiche Winery and learn about the history of the winery, as well as the grapes and the terroir from the winemakers. Get to know your small group while you taste unusual Trapiche wines like Trapiche Colleción Roble, Trapiche Espumante Extra Brut and Fond de Cave. Gaze out at the stunning mountain views as you explore the beautiful tasting and barrel rooms.
Tour the SinFin winery with your guide, sampling a wine style developed over several generations. Learn about Argentinian wine traditions from the SinFin guide. Next, stop at Familia Zuccardi, founded by engineer Alberto Zuccardi in 1963 and run by his family where we visit their small olive oil factory: Zuelo.
Eat lunch at Familia Zuccardi's restaurant, Pan y Oliva. Enjoy tapas, pasta and Santa Julia wines along with the namesake bread and olive oil while gazing out over the surrounding vineyards. After plenty of food and wine, relax in your minivan for the ride back to Mendoza and drop-off at your hotel.
