This place has clearly become way too big for itself. We booked a bike tour and lunch (English option). We booked in October and were given a rate per person of 52.3K pesos. The email said “pricing subject to change”. Well when we showed up, the beginning of the tour started well. The bike ride was nice, beautiful vineyards. However, we found out later that they were combining us with another booked tour after the bike ride and we had to wait 30-40 minutes before the next section started. Also, they didn’t speak any English during the tasting after bilingual tour. We specifically booked an English tour. Usually I wouldn’t mind if I knew the tour would be all Spanish, but expectations should be set better. Also, after eating the lunch, we were given a check of 118k pesos per person, an over 2x increase in the original quote. This must be why they don’t ask you to pay until the day of service. I understand that the economy has changed, but to not notify us at all that the pricing has changed before the tour and to be told “you should have checked the pricing again before you came” was in excusable in our opinion. We were able to fight them down to 79K pesos per person, but they wouldn’t honor their original price. Beware of what you’re getting here as it isn’t as it seems when you book.

What a fun winery tour which included a bike ride through the vineyards. Highly suggest making a stop. DO NOT miss their restaurant for an authentic asado. The food was out of this world. Try to fit in an olive oil tasting if you can.

This place was tops on everyone's list on where to have a great winery lunch so we couldn’t pass it up. It wasn’t located near the other Maipu wineries so do factor that into your planning if you are going there on your own (ie. not on a set tour) and be sure to make advance lunch reservations.

The Zuccardi restaurant was set back off the highway in a leafy garden/park inside the vineyard grounds in a charming house with terracotta floors. They offered us a 3-course traditional Argentine menu which came with their Santa Julia house wines or an elaborate 6-course menu of nouvelle cuisine dishes and more high-end wines. We chose the 3-course meal which was 280 pesos (USD 70) total for the both of us.

Our meal began with an excellent cup of cream of pumpkin soup and we were offered our choice of 4 of their white wines (Torrontes, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay or Viognier). The next course was our choice of beef, chicken and/or cheese empanadas which were accompanied by one of their specialty red wines, a Tempranillo. The entrée course was a plethora of grilled meats, sausages, chicken, etc. which were served with a large salad and grilled vegetables. We again had our choice of red wine for this course and their Santa Julia Malbec went perfectly with everything. For dessert, there was a Bavarois (a type of flan) served with caramelized apple-walnut compote and a fig half, as well as a dish of fresh red grapes, and one of their dessert wines. Espressos and mini-shortbread cookies followed.

I also want to mention Zuccardi’s homemade olive oils. There were 3 different kinds set out on our table and then during lunch, we were also given a dollop of their “Olive Oil of the Day” which had been pressed only 5 days prior. It was all delicious! After lunch, our host Fred gave us a quick tour of their cellars under the restaurant where a good deal of their wine is stored.

We both agreed that it was $70 well spent and would recommend lunch here to anyone. Whereas Ruca Malen's lunch felt upscale and chic (and had that amazing view of the mountains), our Familia Zuccardi meal had a friendly, casual vibe. The food was at each place different but equally good.

Our experience at Zuccardi was fantastic. Our group of 4 started with a cooking class enhanced by the bubbly we sipped while learning to make bread, empanadas, and a tasty dessert. Next we toured the winery & enjoyed wine tastings with a very entertaining and knowledgable guide. Finally we returned to the winery's restaurant for a great lunch which included some of the food we made earlier and of course more delicious wine. The added bonus of our visit was meeting winery owner Jose Zuccardi & discovering our families came from the same area of Italy!

Arranged a wine tasting at Saint Julian (owned by Zuccardi) followed by lunch. The wine tasting was indoors in their wine shop, and was very basic intro to wine: sniff, swirl, swish, spit. Discussion of varietals and of terroir. Their wines for the basic tasting are good but not spectacular. Tasting followed by a tour of the facility. Again, nothing amazing if you’ve done any wine tours in Napa, Chile, etc. good intro. Warm and friendly young woman doing the tour. In Spanish, although she could discuss in English if you needed.

We stopped here on a wine tasting tour of Mendoza and were blown away. While it's no surprise that the wine was good, I was surprised that it was THAT good. Torrontes is insane! And Tito tastes better than a blend should be allowed to taste. Don't cut corners on your trip, take the tour and do the tastings. But if you go there for one reason only, it should probably be the food. The empanadas will haunt your dreams, as will the sausages and salads—all lovingly prepared over wood/vine fires. Eat al fresco if you possibly can, as the atmosphere only makes the experience better. We met Julia Zuccardi, who was incredibly gracious and kind. In fact, given the "attraction" nature of Familia Zuccardi, it very easily could have become a Disneyland for wine with an irrational amount of tourist-pleasing shlock. But the family has done an exceptional job of maintaining the integrity of the experience and the quality of their products. My only regret is that I didn't spend more time there.

When I visited Mendoza I had the opportunity to visit Zuccardi Winery in Maipú.
It was my first time in a winery, I love wines and I learnt a lot in this beautiful place. And Zuccardi wines... wow! A and Q are outstanding in my favorite list.
At the end of the visit, we shared a dinner with their workers, owners and, of course, all their wine labels. It was awesome.

While in Mendoza, Argentina, you must plan wine tours and one of them must be at the Zuccardi Winery and lunch. The wine tour will show you how large this business is and the tastings are fun to experience. Reservations for lunch are a must but do not miss this one. We were taken to their private restaurant with views of the vineyards. The experience started once you sat down and the food started to appear. It is a lunch barbecue where it seemed like endless meats, vegetables and salad appearing in courses. Just enjoy the ride of the well known meats served in Argentina! This stop is a must and accompanied by the wines of the Zuccardi vineyards. Enjoy!

First let me say that this restaurant/vineyard was one of the most beautiful that we had visited. Unfortunately, the food fell far short of the mark. The restaurant was gorgeous and the service was good. Unfortunately, you only had a choice of barbecue/parilla or a special wine pairing menu called a summer tasting menu by Exec. Chef Matias Aldasoro. Our group got each. The parilla fell short of any of the other food we had in Argentina - which had been excellent up to this time. It was edible, but very salty and unappetizing. The wine pairings however were good. The Summer Tasting was completely inedible. My spouse and son struggled through the first 4 pairings and then simply gave up. They could not stand another horrible serving. Honestly, I tasted the first two and then refused to taste anymore - that's how bad it was. We finished the barbecue, but left without finishing the tasting menu. They were shocked and told us that the chef was preparing the main dish. We indicated that we were not interested and asked to speak to the manager. We told the manager that it was completely inappropriate and terrible. She was shocked and said that it was a new menu. We asked her if she had tasted any of it and she indicated no. We told her that maybe you should have checked it out before you charged people so much money for this (around $60 pp I believe). She became kind of rude and just walked away. We told them we would take our coffee outside which had a lovely area covered by lovely grape vines and it was beautiful. The coffee was ok. They did not respond in any manner whatsoever to our complaints. I guess they don't care about the guests and only want their money. BTW, we paid in full and were offered no discounts whatsoever. The management is doing a very poor job, but the restaurant was full so maybe other customers don't care???? It was the only game in town, perhaps that's why. I suggest you enjoy a glass of wine in the garden and skip the food completely.

One of our first stops in Mendoza was to visit and have a wine pairing lunch at Bodega Zuccardi.

We were amazed at how many activities they have. After visiting the winery and their beautiful gift shop, we had lunch in their attractive glass restaurant. We are meat lovers so we chose the traditional Argentine asado. It was a wine pairing menu with empanadas, salad, grilled vegetables and all the meat you could eat. It was satisfying and delicious. Be sure to taste Malamado (malbec with grappa) at the end of your meal. Service and attention was great. Tour of the winery is free when you stay for lunch.

We stayed at Club Tapiz outside Mendoza city limits to be able to visit more freely the bodegas around Mendoza and Valle del Uco. We rented a car with GPS, getting the coordinates when making reservations for each destination made it much easier to travel.
