What is it?
Our business is a winebar with oenotouristic experiences created by three friends from Wintour. We propose different activities related to wine and gastronomy. People can enjoy a glass of wine and some tapas after a day skiing or hiking in the nature of Mendoza, surrounded by the Andes. The experiences combine wine and food pairings with sports, history and nature.
Why did we create it?
The idea of this business started after osberving that many people go to visit the remains of the plane that crashed in the Andes in 1972. History is part of the area and has become in a place of pilgrimage. A rugby team from Uruguay was traveling in the plane 571, that’s why many of our visitors are followers of this sport. Also, wine is part of the heritage of Mendoza province, so this bar offers experiences that combine history, wine and sports with a unique landscape.

Who are the creators?
We are three friends who met during WINTOUR that share a common background in Agriculturan Engineering and the three of us are passionate about wine. We belong to different countries, Chile, Argentina and Catalunya, so we want to share not only our wines, food and culture in this winebar, but also the gastronomy of different countries.
