Mendoza Deluxe Sparkling Wine Tour

The best bubbles in Mendoza

Tour type: Private , Duration: 8 Hours

Product ID: 43151
Description

Enjoy a terrific day in the mendocinian countryside and try the best sparkling wines!
 
First you will discover Bodega Cruzat, located in the Perdriel area of Mendoza. Cruzat is one of the few wineries in Argentina and Chile dedicated exclusively to produce Ultra Premium sparkling wines by (in) the traditional French method. In Argentina, where there is a culture of drinking sparkling as an aperitif, there is a huge range in quality. 

Don Pedro Rossell, Argentina’s primo maestro in Sparkling wines, will invite you into the fermentation tank area where tall, slim tanks huddle in a corner. These tanks are used specifically for making the bases for sparkling wines to avoid oxidation as the grape musts go through the first and second fermentation, malolatic. He explains that as the wines ferment, they create layers of aromas that increase the complexity as the wines are kept on the lies. From the moment of the harvest to this point it takes about two years (or more) as a still wine. This is before the magic of turning it into bubbly even starts. Enjoy the fruits of his labor in the tsating room.
