Most people come to Ruca Malen not for the winery, but for the restaurant which is famed for being one of the top winery restaurants in Mendoza. Sitting on the road to Chile, this winery has a modern and simple architecture which maximizes the mountain and vineyard view in the tasting rooms and restaurant.
A classic tour through the winery looks through the process of winemaking, finishing with a tasting of their mainly red line-up of wines. A special blending masterclass is an optional add-on if you have a bit more time on your hands.
The restaurant is packed out most lunch times with tourists and locals keen to sample the multi-courses tasting menu matched with their wines. The secret to its success is in top Mendoza chef Lucas Bustos‘ attention to detail in color, flavor and texture.
