Targeted at Mendoza people and tourists, as every year, Argentine wineries offer diverse options to enjoy during Easter period.
In the case of Dominio del Plata, located in Agrelo – Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza, its menu includes several Easter dishes. Among the options, it recommends, as first course, a mollet egg with spinach, pepper and paille potatoes; as main course, a trout filet with mashed sweet potatoes and powdered bacon; and finally as dessert, a block of dark chocolate with red fruits.
In addition, Bodega NQN, located in Neuquén province, will open its cellar to offer visitors a tasting of clusters of Merlot grape coasted in chocolate and paired with all its wine lines: P15, Malma Finca La Papay, Malma Reserva de Familia, and Malma Universo. Likewise, the winery invites to relax in the middle of the valley of San Patricio del Chañar, having lunch at Malma Restó, where Matías Nuñez, chef and gastronomy consultant, has created a special Easter menu made with regional products, resorting to Patagonia trout in different dishes.

Moreover, Carlos Grosso, responsible for Casa Bianchi winery -from San Rafael- talked to WineSur about the expectations for this Easter. According to indicators, the winery expects to receive from 300 to 400 people a day. Generally, Casa Bianchi welcomes national visitors (96%) and foreign tourists (4%). As regards the former, 68% of them are from Buenos Aires and the rest from Santa Fe, Córdoba, Neuquén and the city of Mendoza. The winery will offer its usual option, consisting of six different types of gourmet appetizers, as it is characterized by the smoked products (cheeses, salmon, exotic meats and olives). However, it is worthy to highlight that during Easter period, the winery has decided to extend its opening hours (Monday to Sunday, from 9 am to 1 pm and from 2 pm to 6 pm) in all its programs: Traditional visit (tour around the winery and wine tastings); Premium visit (tour and tasting of the winery’s high-end wines at the Bianchi family’s dome); “Viviendo la viña” / Living the vineyard (a long tour around the vineyard and winery with a high-end wine tasting); “A cada bocado su vino”/ A wine for each bite (tour through the winery with a food-wine pairing at the dome); and Bike Vineyards (tour by bike from San Rafael downtown to the vineyards, with a Premium visit and gourmet appetizer).
