Wine Capital of the World.
From 14:30 hs we will pick you up from selected hotels to go to Luján de Cuyo and Maipú, where you are the vineyards we will visit.
Through this tour, we will get in contact with the work's culture in the hands of immigrants who, using irrigation techniques inherited from the natives such as canals and ditches, managed to transform the desert soil into a productive oasis.
Prestigious wineries proliferated in this landscape, which have positioned Argentina as a privileged producer at an international level thanks to the quality of its products.
We will visit two wineries in which we can learn more about traditional methods and also about the incorporation of the latest technology. Accompanied by expert winery guides and oenologists, they will show us the wine making methods and the processes of elaboration, bottling and labelling of the wines. After the visit, they will invite us to taste these delicious wines.
We will also visit an olive growing establishment, where we will observe the process of elaboration of the olive oil, also of excellent quality, and then we will be offered a tasting.
After spending an incredible afternoon enjoying the best wines in the area, we will return to our selected hotels at approximately 18:30 PM.
