Tempus Alba

Maipú

Overview

In the middle of Maipu's wine district this family vineyard and winery has native desert vegetation in the garden along the drive up to its modern building. Made of large stones and thick walls, the winery maintains a cool temperature and rustic appeal.

Inside, visitors can tour the winery on their own, using their informative education signs where they guide you through the different processes and the history and culture of wine in Mendoza. The micro winery uses smaller tanks and Tempus Alba works with different Malbec clones in order to find the variety’s optimum expression here in Maipu and in their vineyards in the Uco Valley.

This is a popular winery for tourists travelling by bike so expect to see young people enjoying the ever present Mendocinean sun on their gorgeous terrace which sits right above the vineyards and orchard of olive trees. The ambiance of the winery is relaxed and easy going, take your time over a tasting of their different wines by the glass or go in for a bottle of whichever you like best. Relaxing music makes this a place to linger and enjoy a real sense of being on vacation.

Wine to try: As they are a small scale production, Tempus Alba takes care of producing more simple and subtle wines. Within the winery, visitors find a variety of different vintages. Try their 2006 Tempranillo for a lighter, more evolved wine.
