Italian Renaissance architecture is not the only thing to mark out the Trapiche winery from its Andean surroundings – its exemplary Bordeaux varietals have long been overturning outdated ideas about Argentinian wine and a newer site out towards the coast has introduced surprising grapes like Albariño and Assyrtiko to South America. Guided by biodynamic principles, visitors to the Mendoza estate can exclusively try a fully biodynamic Malbec. Book in for a private master class with the head sommelier in the underground cellars, where you’ll feast on wine and cheese, or head to the more relaxed Estación 83 bar where wine is served on tap from a repurposed freight train carriage amid olive groves.
