About this trip

The road to Chile is stunning to look at and fascinating to learn about.  Following the route that skirts the winding course of the Mendoza river, you will leave the countryside behind in order to enter the pre-mountain range area.

The first stop will be in Potrerillos, a small mountain town, with weekend residences belonging to the inhabitants of Mendoza. There is also an unbeatable view of the Potrerillos dam which forms a breathtaking artificial lake. The following section of the route leads to Uspallata, framed by mountainous landscapes with changing colors, filled with various geological formations and many tunnels on the road.
The trip continues towards several other small mountain towns, Polvaredas, Punta de Vacas, and Penitentes, until you reach Puente del Inca, a natural bridge where Las Cuevas river has drilled into the mountains forming this incredible natural attraction. Thermal water emerges from different areas and several pools are being used by the climbers as a free spa!
Close to the border, a wonderful viewpoint allows us to see the Aconcagua Mt in all its splendor, which stands at 6,962 meters ( 22,841 feet) above sea level. We´ll enter the stunning Horcones Lagoon and to the Provincial Park for a small walk and pictures.

The mountains in the Andes are the highest in the world outside of the Himalayas. On the way back we will discover the little and charming town of Uspallata, before driving along the Mendoza River on the way back to Mendoza city. 

This tour is really an amazing way to see and experience the spectacular wilderness areas of the Andes Mountains in Mendoza.

Borravino Wine Tours was created by professionals born in Mendoza and Uruguay who were passionate about wine in our personal lives but working in other fields. One day not so long ago we decided to give up our day jobs and dedicate ourselves to what we are really love - wine and the culture surrounding it.

An excellent tour for a fun, relaxing and wine-filled day in the Uco Valley! We visited two very different wineries, then had an outdoor lunch with wines and lives music at a third. We enjoyed each place, and the pacing of the tour was perfect. I think everyone would really enjoy this tour.

We had a wonderful three day wine tour in Mendoza experiencing the beauty of all three wine regions! We were very well taken care of and went to a wonderful mix of wineries varying in size and capacity as well as wine styles. Borravino staff were very communicative and helpful and we would return to Mendoza to tour with them again!

Borravino Wine Tours It was very easy communicating with Damien Pinon of Borrivino Wine Tours. He was very responsive and flexible in planning all the details of our 3 day visit to the Mendoza wine region. Unfortunately he was traveling but he ensured that his partner Cris would take care of us. The following morning Cris picked us up and drove us to Maipo and Luján de cuyo wineries. The highlights of our day being the delicious lunch at Tempus Alba winery paired with wines, followed by Bodega Finca Agostino which was a gorgeous property and wine tasting with their sommelier was a truly special experience. Amazing property and tasting! Day 2 Lujan de Cuyo wine tour Lorca Winery, (ex Foster Lorca) Visit and wine tasting - fabulous property with views of snow clad acongahua mountain. Personal and delightful wine tasting with cheese and nibbles. Next we visited Piattelli Vineyards - another gorgeous property with a lagoon- we enjoyed the tour and tasting - especially their wines from Salta! Day 3 Uco Valley wine tour with sommelier Migüelito Our drive to Uco Valley was beautiful with rolling vineyards. This was the Mendoza we had expected. We wished we had stayed at Uco Valley .. We visited gorgeous Andeluna Cellars, - excellent winery and tasting. Excellent wines - we wished we could have carried more back. Shipping was steep! Next we visited El Vistaflorino winery - excellent and passionate wine maker and small producer. Damian was brilliant and the wines were a tribute to his talent and hard work. Onto Cundo winery where we had a delicious gourmet lunch paired with excellent wine. The ambiance was modern and classy with excellent personalized service of food pairing and wine Excellent experience! Thank you Damian, Cris and Migüelito for making our trip so memorable.

The tour and overall experience was fantastic! I cannot say enough good things about it. Colonia is stunning and because of the tour, we cannot wait to plan our next trip back. Andrés was an exceptional tour guide, knowledgeable, fun, fantastic. He also went above and beyond helping us navigate an emergency we had upon departing the ferry.
