The third pick is a winery where you will taste library wines of older vintages not available normally. You will have the chance to try around 20 premium and Icon wines, including barrel and tank tastings.
 
To finish off, head to Maipú to visit a truly off the beaten track gem, a beautifully restored adobe house dating back to 1865 rich in Mendoza history. This house is the home of the winemaker of a small boutique winery, making elegant, complex and unique wines with non-traditional grapes.
 
Here you will enjoy 3-course lunch with a menu inspired by one of the old cookbooks left by previous owners all paired with their top wines.
