Casa De Uco Vineyards & Wine ResortStaying Here
This resort is completely devoted to wine making outfitted with a spa, pool, and 7 room, 9 suite hotel accompanied by vineyard bungalows all designed to blend with the topography of surrounding vineyards as far as the eye can see and snow capped Andes in the background that on clear days appear as though merely several blocks away.
Executive Chef Pablo Torres created an Uco Valley driven yet internationally inspired menu honoring seasonal organic ingredients sourced from onsite gardens and local farmers. Casa de Uco also offers true Argentine cooking experiences in the vineyard over open flames asado style. Perfect pairing opportunities include their El Salvaje 2014 Malbec fermented with wild yeast and barrel aged more for micro-oxygenation than oaking yielding a wine that's lightly filtered with a more subdued acidity.
Wine Making Program
Casa de Uco offers a collaborative membership program with partial vineyard ownership and capacity for members to make their very own vine to barrel wine under the guidance of head winemaker Alberto Antonini. "We want to advise wine lovers who may not be wine professionals. Our private vineyard project was created for wine enthusiasts to get hands-on experience making their own wine", says Antonini. "You can choose how much to become involved in the process, from the beginning stages of planting grapes, working alongside expert agronomists and enologists, to designing your personal wine labels and brand."
