Owner description: At Ampora Wine Tours we organize high-end tasting tours with gourmet wine pairing lunches to Mendoza's most important wine regions. These are semi-private tours in small groups up to 8 people, or private deluxe tours where we pull out all the stops - the best possible wine quality you will be able to find in Mendoza. We also offer our "Black List" tastings at our own exclusive wine space: Reservation only tastings of Mendoza's top shelf wines, highly rated wines and hidden gems.

First of all, one of the highlights of the day was our tour guide, Sabrina. She is energetic, passionate, and has a great report with the driver of the van and the proprietors of the wineries we visited. Our day got off to a rocky start because the tour company sent a taxi to our hotel to join then at the first winery--regretfully, the taxi driver was given incorrect information which resulted in us circling around for over 30 mins. However, once we arrived and Ampora Wine Tours was made aware of the error, the were completely professional with their response and worked to ensure the rest of our day was wonderful---and in this they succeeded. We stopped at three, very different wineries that were hospitable, sharing an abundance of wine and food. Our last stop was a beautiful, bountiful, and delicious five course meal paired with top shelf wines of Mendoza. By the end our tour, we had made friends from around the world, including Sabrina, who felt like and old friend. This was an overall, wonderful experience that I highly recommend to anyone visiting Mendoza.

We booked from this tour from the UK to fit into our tour of Argentina and Brazil and Ampora were very informative and helpful as part of the tour selection and booking.
The day was excellent and helped to make this a memorable trip for us. We visited four wineries in (Benegas, Pulenta, Cealum and Lagarde) with a delicious gourmet lunch and wine pairing to round things off.
Every winery impressed with its surroundings, wine and enthusiasm of its people - but each bought something different to the day. We visited during wine harvest so it was great to walk in some of the vineyards and taste the grapes too.
We had a truly fantastic day and Ampora are to be commended for putting together a top class experience. Many thanks to our wine host Jose.

Sabrina and her driver were great. She speaks fluent English so can translate a lot from the tours, is knowledgeable about wines of the region, has a great sense of humor and has working relationships with the top vineyards. We got to taste the best wines offered at Viña Cobos, Pulenta, Matervini and Lagarde (definitely go for the 6-course lunch there with pairings!). The sedan was new and clean. The tour felt so luxurious!

We had the one-day tour on the Uco Valley. We were in Mendoza during high season, but our tour was on Monday so it turned out to be just the two of us along with our most excellent, knowledgeable and professional guide Sabrina (please forgive any misspelling of your name). We were picked up promptly at our hotel and were professionally driven to the three wineries on the docket. The tour was thoughtfully organized so we tasted wines from the three subregions of the Uco. Amphora obviously has a great relationship with the wineries as we got "bonus" tastings each place. One was a sparkling Charmat rose (would like to try their traditional!). Another was a set of library blends illustrating both vintages and blends. The lunch at DiamAndes was simply wonderful.

Our guide both spoke perfect English (she had taught at Lewis and Clark in Portland, OR) and was incredibly knowledgeable about the wines and wineries.

Beyond all of that, the Amphora office folks--Mercedes and Carla--helped me with reservations at excellent restaurants.

In short, we could not have been happier with the trip. And, we do a lot of these so we know how hard they are to organize and just how good this one was.

We did the Uco Valley wine tour on February 23, 2018 with 4 our people (6 clients in total). Our great experience with Ampora began when we walked into their Medoza office and booked the tour. Their office staff were knowledgeable and truly interested in finding the right tour for us. They nailed it! We visited Bodega Atamisque, Bodega Corazon del Sol and, finally, Bodega DiamAndes, where we had an amazing lunch with wine pairings. Our guide (Sabrina) was knowledgeable and fun and went out of her way to answer all our questions, whether wine-related or not! She truly exceeded our expectations. Our driver, Mercedes, was equally eager to ensure we all had a great experience. Amphora picks quality wineries and the hosts at each winery are as knowledgeable and friendly as the Amphora staff. This wine tour is a "must do"!
