Testimonial – Argentina – Wine & Food Experience – 5 Nights

Five days of fabulous food, wine and experiences. We loved Juan and Cecelia and Finca La Azul. Here we are in BA at the start of our road scholar trip and our first meal was Industrial empanadas to start and industrial vanilla ice cream to finish. We miss all the fabulous meals you arranged for us! We loved the beer tasting, Tim. Lots of fun. Dane especially appreciated visiting with the brewmaster, who brought out a couple of very special beers. Of the 13 we tried, Dane said only one was just so-so. Great work. Thanks very much.

Hotels:

Uco Valley – Finca La Azul Guest House

Shirley & Pablo’s house: this could be the alternative name of Finca La Azul. They are who bring this all to life and make it the most intimate stay on this side of the Andes. A beautiful design lead home that they cleverly built to include some extra rooms for their guests: we hope you will be among them. Endless 360 degree vineyards views with the Andes ever present. The rooms are extremely large and light filled, all enjoying their own terraces. The style is typical of Argentine Pampa with exposed walls, wall to ceiling glass giving a rustic yet clean effect. There is also a huge garden to enjoy with a swimming pool and a parrilla, where the BBQ meats work their magic. Paul & Shirley are avid about food/wine and super cooks. This stay will be intimate and relaxing. Highly Recommended. Availability is an issue.

Mendoza City – The Sheraton

We love the location of the Sheraton Mendoza: right in the centre of Mendoza, but tucked away on a lesser road, it ensures an oasis of calm. The management is strong as you would expect from Starwood. We prefer the rooms with mountain view on the higher floors. Outside of the outsized rooms and excellent communal areas, the pool and sun deck add a necessary touch to finish of this hotel’s appeal. The prices are great for such a high quality lodging like this. It may not be five stars, but still the very competitive price gives Sheraton the edge in Mendoza.

Tour Outline & Guiding – Argentina – 5 Nights


GUIDING


Juan (Mendoza, Argentina) 

Juan Hom is from Mendoza and is a real wine lover. He started to connect with wine at the early age of 11 years old, when his father, being a winemaker, introduced him to the experience of wine with sparkling water, the sodeado, as they use to call it. Since those days, he has lived a very happy life in Mendoza, the city of magics. Juan has been working for the wine tourism sector in Mendoza in the last ten years and still falls in love with every single spot of this place blessed by the sun and every single piece of land where grapes/vines are grown. He has the ambition to share and show to citizens of the world his little heaven spot. He loves his work, as it gives to him the chance to live his dream: introduce Mendoza and her wine culture to the world.
