Bodega Renacer

RENACER WINERY

The winery, designed for premium wines production, was built in 2004 in Perdriel, Lujan de Cuyo, at the foot of the Andes range. It’s a fusion of modernity and classicism: well defined straight lines with Tuscan-inspired walls, showing very attractive aesthetics. Renacer features cutting-edge Italian technology, computerized temperature monitoring, traceability of all processes and the latest equipment. Renacer is committed in the environment care since the first day and incorporates new technology every day to meet that objective: It is the first Argentinian winery solar energy-using and the first to neutralize carbon emissions and certify their carbon footprint.

In Renacer we will take the Winemakers’ Experience: We pretend that, according to various expressions of Malbec, visitors can do their own blend, deciding on proportions and experiencing the results. With this, we want to understand the complex task of oenologists while being proud of making your own wine. This is a fun teamwork sensory experience.


We will taste: Punto Final Sauvignon Blanc, Punto Final Chardonay reserve, Punto Final Malbec Reserve and Enamoré (Wine made with the "appassimento" method. Vines exposed to dry winds at ambient temperature to lose around a third of its weight).




BODEGA CAELUM

Caelum is a family run and boutique winery, located in the heart of Agrelo, Lujan de Cuyo. The winery was built in 2009 after several years of grape growing and selling. The winery is not only known for it’s high-end reds, but also for it’s whites and sparkling wines. Caelum’s winemaker, Giuseppe Franceschini, prints his italian elegance into the wines making them even more interesting.


All of the winery’s portfolio is produced with estate grown grapes. Our terroir is considered unbeatable for an optimum development of the grapes. In Caelum, besides tasting our wines, you will also be able to pair these with our estate pistachos.


We will taste: 2 Classic Wines and 1 Reserve Wine shared with the exquisite pistachios from their own finca.




BODEGA RUCAMALÉN

Ruca Malen Winery started as an initiative of Jean Pierre Thibaud in 1998, who at age 73 undertook this project. This family Winery grew up slowly and in 2015 was acquired by the Perez Companc Group. Jean Pierre, at 90, always in the permanent search for growth and improvement, confident in the potential of Ruca Malen, agrees to be part of that portfolio.
Ruca Malen acquired the clear vision to be at the vanguard of the Argentine wine industry through innovation and a bold character. Ruca Malen represents the restless spirit of a brand that invites you to keep your spirit restless and let yourself follow your curiosity, as Jean Pierre Thibaud did.

Continuing with the history of passion and audacity that Ruca Malen represents, in 2004 Jean Pierre devised the creation of a restaurant in the winery, convinced that to really appreciate the essence of their wines they should be enjoyed with the right pairing. Imposing trend emerged the concept of the tasting menu. Those visitors who love gastronomy can enjoy a special tasting menu created to highlight the pairing.
