Hands-on wine harvest tour

Hands-on Wine Harvest Tour
Experience the wine harvest from the inside in Luján de Cuyo or the Uco Valley region.

Luján de Cuyo: February 29th & March 2nd
Uco Valley: March 8th & March 12th

This is one of the most exciting periods in the vineyard. Visiting wineries during the wine harvest and seeing them in full action is a very special experience, no wonder the harvest season is also the busiest season for wine travel.

On our Hands-on Wine Harvest Tour, you will connect with the land and its fruit, get to know and participate in this important stage in the wine making process. We will take advantage of the cool morning temperatures to go directly to our harvest location where you will learn about wine harvesting (the vine, techniques, required conditions of ripeness, etc.). Soon you will receive your personal equipment to start handpicking bunches of grapes from the vineyard!

After that, you will visit the backstage where the grapes are sorted and proceed on their way to the tanks, before celebrating the work done with a delicious wine tasting including a wide range of wines up to the winery’s icon.

By this time, you should be ready for lunch, so we will then proceed to the second winery, where you will enjoy a multi-course wine pairing menu.

Minimum 4 people. If there are more than 8 people for this tour, we will go with two vans and two guides, meeting up at the different wineries (maximum two groups of 8 people).
