“Thank you so much for your wonderful care and attention on our tour of Mendoza. Vines was beautiful, from the welcome tasting in the winery to the meals to the location, everything was over the top. Finca Adalgisa was very charming. I was worried it might be noisy in the city but it was very quiet and very friendly. We enjoyed every minute, and we enjoyed spending time with you! It was a great trip from beginning to end and that is why we are back again!”
