Wine walking tours


A unique  tour  for wine lovers who care for a healthy lifestyle and enjoy nature and first-hand experience. We arrive to the winery in the morning, walk along the vineyards for an hour or a bit more , while observing vine varieties, training systems and breathing the cool air of the mountains. When we get to the highest vineyards we are welcome in the shade of the gallery with empanadas cooked in the adobe oven, and an Argentine asado with wines of the winery,  chosen  to fully match the country food. After lunch we enjoy a coffee while sitting in the shade and go to visit the winery .


For groups coming in summer, we start at sunset when the vineyards cool down, walking along the vines for one hour and a half at a sports rythm, feeling the immensity of the landscape.  Then we stop at the winery , where we have a wine tasting of  premium malbec and other varietals of the first wine regions. Food matching includes gourmet “tapas” for all tastes.  
In the evenings where there is a full moon we have  an informal tango lesson led by a couple of tango dancers . Other evenings we devote to watching the stars of the Southern Hemisphere –guided by an astronomer.

Norton – Perdriel, Luján de Cuyo
Norton exports its high-end wines to 60 countries over the world. Its story is rich and tells of  the long, winding evolution experienced by the Argentine wines since the outset of the XXth century to the top-notch technological present. Its building is highly representative of this evolution. The surrounding vineyards take us walkers around a tour of many different ways of working the vineyards  as a result of an innovative “mapping” of each single plot, its soil and  sun exposure to get as many singular grapes as natural conditions provide. Historical underground cellar more than 70 year old vintage wines.

 

Norton

Terrazas de Los Andes –Perdriel, Lujan de Cuyo
The winery, part of the Moët –Hennessy  group  and specialized in still wines, was launched following the restauration of a Spanish winery dating  from 1898, facing the impressive mountains of Cordón del Plata, in Perdriel , Luján. High elevation  grape cultivation bécame the core of years of experience resulting in extraordinary wines which maximize fruit expression. Its wines are a perfect liason of French and Argentine wine cultures.
