Sorry for giving so low points, I think that Ruca Malen has some good and reasonably priced wines, but I honestly don't understand all the raving reviews about their paired lunch. After eating at about 7 wineries, I must say that this was the worst and most expensive one. The amuse bouche and appetizers were nothing special, the filet mignon... More

One of the best Bodega restaurant visited so far. Aside from the great wine pairing, the dishes were true works of art and staff was very good.

The view is amazing and the food was just fantastic, their wine pairing was simply perfect and this is a must go if you are at Mendoza. It was one of the best meals with wine pairing we had and the price is great! We did not go for the wine tour but it also seems nice!

The winery facilities are very modern with an emphasis on scientific winemaking. What made the tour perfect was the incredible lunch tasting menu and wine pairing. Absolutely superb, as good as you will get anywhere in the world!

The food in Mendoza is fabulous and when paired with a winery's wine it can be sublime. This was the case at Ruca Male. We had a six course, 6-7 wine tasting menu for lunch. Each dish was a work of art and each was exquisite. The menu highlighted the local culture and used locally sourced products. There was also... More

My husband and I had a wine tour followed by lunch and with paired wine in Ruca Malen. Both the food and the wine was amazing. One of the highlights of our trip to Mendoza. Highly recommend.
