One of the most trusted names in wine for generations of Argentines, Lopez is nearly unique in all the World. For well over a century they have been producing affordable wines with a care and style that is hard to come by.
As with any landmark the locals too often overlook this treasure in their own backyards. Few wine touring companies bother to visit, and Lopez is rarely on most people’s must visit list.
This is an oversight that you can rectify by making a point of discovering this hidden jewel that is in plain sight.
Decades ago wine was aged by the wineries before release, but this practice fell out of favor with rising costs and changing tastes. Lopez holds true to this tradition, allowing some of their wines to mature for 10 years or more in wooden casks before bottling.
These giant wooden vats dominate the winery, but coexist with the most up to date stainless steel and other signs of the winery’s evolution. Few other places in the World offer you a glimpse of how wine used to be made, all the while producing the robust young wines that the modern consumer demands.
Still in the hands of the Lopez family for over 112 years, Bodega Lopez has been sharing their vision of fine wine through countless changes in fashion and taste, always sticking to their pursuit of quality and value.
More like visiting a working museum than a winery, Lopez welcomes tourists with a newly built hospitality center and restaurant. After viewing ancient wine amphora and turn of the last century wine making equipment, you can enjoy a comfortable lunch and tasting.
Ready to fulfill the needs of small groups or large, Bodega Lopez is situated just minutes from Mendoza in the nearby town of Maipu..
