Andeluna would look quite at home in a remote part of Texas as a hunting lodge. This is not accidental, Andeluna has deep roots in Texas. The late Ward Lay, founder of Andeluna, was the son of the of Frito-Lay's Herman Lay. Father and son hailed from Texas.
When Ward was not at his home in Texas he was likely enjoying his 200,000 acre ranch and hunting lodge in Patagonia, in the south of Argentina.
Andeluna marries these two worlds in decor, sentiment and wine style. The wines of Andeluna are distinctly Argentine, but are made with an eye towards American tastes.
Situated at the foot of the Andes just outside of the town of Tupungato in the Uco Valley, Andeluna has magnificent views of the mountains. The huge windows of the dining room are designed to take advantage of the effect, allowing visitors to enjoy the view as much as the food.
With its roots in the US, Andeluna Cellars is one of the most American friendly wineries in Argentina. Visitors can enjoy tastes of the wine at the modern wine bar, while being entertained with discussions about the wine in English.
Looking for something even more exclusive? Andeluna offers special Reserve Tastings held in the cellar tasting room.
