WINE TOURS

 

Mendoza is one of the 8 wine capitals of the world. It is considered Argentina’s most important province in terms of productivity, with 165,000 hectares of cultivated vineyards, representing around 66% of the overall wine production in the country.

Recognized internationally for quality wines, especially from the emblematic grape variety of Argentine, Malbec. In Mendoza, strong ancestral connections with the cultures of Italy, Spain, and France have formed the base of viticulture here, with each country brining its own traditions, knowledge, and history of wine to the region.

We have  named various Wine Routes (Rutas de Vino) in each wine region, and in Mendoza, lies the “Cradle of Wine” (Maipú), the “Land of Malbec” (Luján de Cuyo), and the region of high-altitude wines (Uco Valley). In Barrica tours we specialize in these three regions, our challenge is to make you enjoy the "mendoza expirience" as mucha as we can.
