Sala de Aromas at Belasco de BaquedanA 30-minute drive from Mendoza city center lies the only existing aroma room in the Americas. The aroma room at the modern winery Belasco de Baquedan is filled with 46 cylinders of Plexiglas, each featuring a different scent that can be discovered in a glass of vino.
The fragrances are divided into categories such as fruit, floral, vegetable, milky, oily and, curiously, the odorous warning signs of a defective bottle or batch of wine. Your noise will be tickled by lemon, orange, raspberry, rose, geranium, mint, mushroom, vanilla, almond, hazelnut, cedar wood, and pine. Cobos 8260, Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza; +54 261 524-7865/61
