This is a very cute, medium size winery with great wines! We did the guided tour and stayed for the 6 course lunch paired with their wines. The food is contemporary ,exotic and very well cooked. It wasn't the most delicious food I have eaten in my life, but I can appreciate it for its exquisiteness. The view and the... More

We had a 7 course lunch with wines at Ruca Malen. Each course was a delight and accompanied by one of their amazing wines (the Malbec our favourite). We sat on a terrace looking out over the vineyards with the snow capped Andes as the backdrop - SPECTACULAR!

We did not take the tour; we went for the 6 course lunch. The place is gorgeous and we had a beautiful sunny day as we sat on the outdoor patio for lunch, overlooking the Andes. The table is beautifully set and you are given the set menu so you can look at the description of what you are about... More

My partner and I did a tasting and lunch at Ruca Malen, and overall, it was a very beautiful and tasty lunch and the winds here are pretty good. We came here on the recommendation of our concierge. Since we were here in the low season, it was relatively easy to get a last-minute reservation for a tasting and lunch.... More

Had the 5 course food and wine pairing as part of a private wine tour. Was pleasantly surprised by how good the wines were and the quality of the food (thought it was a better food and wine pairing than Andeluna). Great setting sitting outdoors looking over the Andes.

Ruca Malen have made this winery a stand out for me. We had a 6 course degustation lunch with a wide selection of their wine labels. So much creativity and flare in presentation of the food and flavour combination. The setting of looking across the vines to the snow capped Andes Mountains - amazing. This experience is certainly a "must... More

We did the tasting lunch at Ruca Malen ... and it was incredible. First, the environment: sitting on an outdoor terrace overlooking the vineyards with the Andes in the distance. The table set with nice place settings and glassware immediately puts you in the right relaxed frame of mind Then the food .. 6 course tasting menu with paired wines... More

We ate lunch here and it was amazing. The atmosphere is beautiful sitting right in the middle of a vineyard. The service was excellent. The food was very tasty and paired wonderfully with wine.

On our last day in Mendoza we went for a simple three-course lunch with wine pairing. The food was excellent and respectful of dietary restrictions. The wine pairing was spot on and a few bottles needed to be taken home. Ask to sit on their room outside the main building and you will dine with a beautiful view of the... More
