This Tour Include 3 different Wineries,
The Uco Valley is the region of younger wine tourism in the province of Mendoza. There wineries are
located imposing architecture and design, being almost all modern and equipped with the latest technology. The area has a stunning natural environment and it is surrounded by the majestic Cordon del Plata (Andes). The combination of high altitude, soils, irrigation, more than 250 sunny days a year and daytime high temperatures generated an excellent ripening and a high concentration of properties in the different grapes. For this reason the wines obtained are very different and are characterized by very deep color, intense aromas and textures important.

The magnificent winery, designed for both form and function in the shape of a cross, allows for customized gentle handling of the grapes, reducing the distance wine needs to be moved between winemaking steps. Each of the wings is a small winery with two levels-a ground level that houses stainless steel tanks and French wooden vats for fermentation and storage, and an underground level for aging wine in oak casks. The two levels allow wine to flow from the tanks to the barrels by a traditional gravity transfer system. The four wings converge in a circular central chamber, which resembles an amphitheater and was inspired by ancient classical temples.
In the Uco Valley, in the district of San José of Tupungato, on Route 86, famously known as the “Ruta del Vino” or “Wine Route”, appears the “Atamisque” estate. At the entrance, a grove of poplars welcomes visitors. The main entry is behind a stone wall. Here, one can grasp entirely the rich diversity of this philosophically interesting project. The owners John and Chantal Du Monceau invite you to discover and to enjoy the harmony between leisure, recreation and the sound of nature.
In the Rincón Atamisque, the chef, Patricia Torres, 23 years old, offers a fusion between “the gourmet and the local”, with an amazing variety of recipes based on trout which are fished in the Atamisque estate’s very own trout farm. They are selected daily so are always fresh. In addition, the quality of the fruit accompanying the dishes is also highly attended to. The idea is to bring together creativity, care and exquisite tastes. The menu also consists of meat dishes and home-made pasta. Won silver medal in gastronomy from the Great Wine Capitals, Best of 2012 competition.
