Some of my best pictures came from this place- the lanscape is amazing. And our tour guide was an adorable young girl who trumped many seasoned experts with her wine knowledge!

We visited Kaiken Winery, as well as a number of other wineries in the Mendoza area. We were welcomed by Letitia at Kaiken, who gave us a tour of the vines as well as of the wine making process plant. We were very impressed by Letitia's warmth, knowledge and knowledgable description of the many aspects of wine making. There followed a tasting which was highly informative - we learned more from Letitia in Kaiken than from many other wine tastings. An excellent wine tour.

A bit late doing this as we travelled to Mendoza in October, but we had such a great time at Kaiken we had to leave a review. We went as part of a tour organised by Ampora, but I assume you can go independantly. We had tank tasting, a tour of the vinyards, and then a tasting of a selection of wines, with infomation on what to look for in colour, taste etc. The lady who showed us around was really enthusastic, and made the trip really enjoyable. We bumped into her in Mendoza the next day, and we greated as freinds which was really nice. Another posotive is you can buy he cab sav in Waitrose when you get home.

We are in the business and do not normally write reviews on Wineries but It is impossible to fault Lucille and Leticas work. The wines are of course Brilliant was one would expect from a company with this background. Not one weak wine, splendid explainations and all done with grace and a deep level of Knowledge. Congratulations Kaiken you should be very proud. PS the Cabernets are sublime. They also have a well stocked Gift shop and the chance to by some of Montes Chilean Wines if you do not have time to nip over to Chile.
