I fell in love with this little boutique vineyard in Mendoza - Argentina.
I visited about 10 wineries during my stay in Mendoza, and nothing came close to ACHAVAL FERRER.
From the minute I stepped in their property I was treated like royalty. Their vineyard is just precious. Very chic yet a very simple set up. Their staff gave me the impression that they truly love what they do and that they are very proud of the absolutely precious wine that they produce. After a short but very interesting and informative tour, I got to sit down outdoors, along with a few other visitors, facing the view of the vines down the valley, and we got to taste their beautiful wines. A very knowledgeable vigneron told us the history of their vineyard and went over each wine we were tasting, talking about the flavors, the notes, the years, & the blends...

Achaval Ferrer is the first Argentine winery to score 96 points in Wine Spectator and their wines will continue to blaze a trail and prove to the skeptics that Argentine wine is a force to be dealt with. Achaval Ferrer winery is situated close to the dry riverbed of the Rio Mendoza in Lujan de Cuyo.

If you are planning to visit Argentina, make sure to plan a trip to visit Mendoza, and don't miss the chance to experience a memorable tour at Achaval Ferrer.

Note: Achaval Ferrer is not open to mainstream tourism and visits are hard to get especially in the high season. That makes it for even more of a treat! Email Achaval Ferrer and book a tour with them. if you like wonderful wines like we do, you will LOVE IT!
