The Wineries you will visit are:
- Clos de Chacras: it represents the heritage of all Mendocinians, because since its origin in 1921 until today, this piece of land has provided a legacy of our own men and women, using secrets that transform the grape into wine. This is a boutique winery located in Chacras de Coria constructed in 1921. Inside, the winery is full of history and traditional style, but including the most advanced technology to produce high-quality wines. Wine aging process takes place in underground cellars with natural temperature and lighting conditions. Why visiting this winery? Because of its colonial architecture, the essence of a boutique winery, which allows harvesting and processing grapes at their optimum day. Also because of its founder's history: Bautista Gargantini, a pioneer in Mendoza's viticulture.
- Club Tapiz: it is located in a residence built in 1890 and surrounded by 10 hectares of vineyards. The house was restored preserving its Renaissance villa structure without losing its identity, characteristics that make it unique and natural connection with the environment and the magnificent view of the Cordillera de los Andes.
