Ruca Malen

Lujan de Cuyo

Overview

One of the greatest delights of Mendoza is a leisurely winery lunch, with multiple courses paired with exquisite wines, and a gorgeous vineyard and mountain view. Ruca Malen is one of the best options, with the meal set right in the vines, looking out on the snow-capped mountains. Courses such as crisp apple chips and salad with Sauvignon Blanc, and hearty Argentine steak with juicy Malbec make for a delicious gastronomical experience, and the wine is far from shabby.

The tour includes an informative circuit of the winery with a tasting, but you can also learn about and practice blending wines with the sommelier in their unique tasting room.

They have a wide variety of wines to try in their different lines, such as Yauquen, Ruca Malen and Kinien. Wine to try: Their single varietal Petit Verdot is not to be missed.
