My guide was Agustin, who is a very cool guy. He told me I was the second person this year who spoke English on the tour, but it wasn’t a problem at all. We were able to chat and communicate, in addition to him telling me about Mendoza history. The wine tour was cool; I have been on a few wine tours in other countries, so I knew what to expect. The guide, Valentina, was very knowledgeable and nice. She told me all about the winery and then, of course, we tried some wine. The spirits tour was next. The guide, (I think Lucas?) was super friendly and you could tell he loved his job. He made me great drinks and also educated me on gin and brandy. The last stop was at the brewery with Marcos. He was an incredible host and told me all about his process. We then drank beer and ate snacks and chatted. The variety in places and drinks was well worth the price. I found the drinks to be delicious (I had to not finish all of the cocktails in order to survive – but maybe I am a light-weight!).
