Historical Traveler Reviews Finca Adalgisa Hotel Vineyard & Winery Chacras de Coria
Adalgisa, Great Stay and Great Staff
We just returned in October from the Finca Adalgisa after considering Club Tapiz. We stayed for 4 nights. First, we arrived after 9 p.m. and were not in the mood to shower before dinner. They have a wonderful lounge serving wine and appetizers (great sausage and cheese selection) so we got a short tour of the property and relaxed in the lounge for the remainder of the evening. The lounge has both indoor/outdoor space and is very welcoming. The rooms are more rustic Argentinian but very comfortable sheets, pillows, etc. and ours included a fireplace. Each day after wine touring, we found time to relax by the pool which was right outside our door (room 19). The staff was exceptional -- Adrianno & Paula helped us arrange all our wine tastings with a private driver; then they arranged lodging for a sidetrip as well. We had lunch at Ruca Malen -- try to book this in advance as we almost didn't get in....but it was absolutely wonderful. Our only confusion was that we couldn't taste without a touring appointment. If you have your heart set on certain wineries or your schedule is not flexible, make sure this is done in advance. We did the Chandon tour and were willing to pay for their upper level champagne tasting. Unfortunely, this requires a 24 hour advance reservation. Adalgisa was walking distance to restaurants and the town plaza or they will handle reservations and cabs for you. It is only $8 US to cab into Mendoza City so you can do the suburbs (Chacras de Coria) and the city by staying at this property. We visited Vines of Mendoza (a wine tasting boutique owned by 2 Americans) on two different nights and had wonderful wine flights as well as a local winemaker tasting. We ran into a number of people who happily used Vines of Mendoza for their touring arrangements. Breakfast at Finca is continental buffet or eggs, bacon, ham cooked to order . We drove to Club Tapiz (our other consideration) -- the property is beautiful, more upscale/modern looking than Finca Adalgisa but also farther away and a little sterile. We didn't see any area that you could walk to for dining or cocktails. For a more Argentinian experience, I would highly recommend Finca Adalgisa.
Wonderful and Relaxing Oasis! Loved Finca!
We were just at Finca Aldalgisa for two nights in early November, and loved our stay. The setting of the Finca is amazing, amidst the vineyards and beautiful grounds. And, the pool is just delightful -- we sat there many times just gazing at the grounds and relaxing after long days of wine tasting and exploring. Adrian who worked at the front was very helpful, even giving us a tour of the bodega on the property, and helping us find restaurants in town close by. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable, and we enjoyed our stay tremendously. We also loved being within walking distance from all the great restaurants and cafes in Chacras de Corias . . . a cute little town with lots of great things to offer. I would HIGHLY recommend Finca Aldagisa to anyone who wants to stay in Mendoza!!!
A wonderful place to stay
My wife and I and 10 month old baby stayed at Finca Adalgisa for three nights and our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer!! The staff/service was top notch and the grounds were beautiful. The staff went out of there way to accomodate any needs we had and took care of arranging every aspect of our daily itineraries. I would re-book a stay at Finca Adalgisa without hesitation and recommend it highly.
Wonderful days in Mendoza!
While in Mendoza we stayed at a fantastic place...Finca Adalgisa. A little outside of Mendoza's city center, rambling old stone house, feels like you are staying in someone's gorgeous country estate.
It's about 20 minutes from DT Mendoza in a beautiful setting in the middle of a winery. We did not have a car, but that was not a problem for us. We found taxis very easy to get around with. Other people staying at the Finca had rented a car. It did not seem hard to drive in this area. But what we really enjoy were the walks around the area. A five minute walk took you to other nearby restaurants.
People at the hotel were extremely helpful w/reservations/taxis. I also noted that they were making arrangements for tours for other guests for the next day, so I would think you could also do "spur of the moment" planning. They would ask us too if we had tours planned, I think they wanted to make sure we weren't sitting around the Finca all day when there was so much to do in the area.
The other thing we liked about the Finca, they had a nice room attached to the winery (comfortable couches, fireplaces) that served "light" fare and lots of wine. It was the perfect place to relax at night and mingle.
We were very happy there and glad we were not staying in a city setting. The scenery is spectacular!
Beautiful hotel with a vineyard
Before visiting, we had to make a choice between the Park Hyatt and Finca Adalgisa. We chose Finca and we were so happy that we made that choice. This is a wonderful bed & breakfast. The BB is a villa that has been renovated. The gardens are beautiful and very tranquill. The staff is amazingly friendly. We felt like we were staying with friends rather than at a hotel. The BB is located on a vineyard, so do not leave without taking a tour with Adriane (great fun!). The staff also had excellent recommendations for other vineyards to visit. We stayed in a room with an upstairs/downstairs. Very roomy. It also had a refrigerator that came in handy for chilling wine and water.
There is a lovely pool on site (right beside the vineyard).
Breakfast was basic (eggs & croissants), but the service was excellent and I think I gained three pounds eating all the bread (yummy!).
I was surprisingly blown away by this selection.
The staff and accommodations were wonderful. The owner Gabriela and her staff helped set up two days of wine tours with stops for lunch at bodegas-- Ruca Malen the first day and Carlos Pulenta the second. Both were excellent, in fact I would rate our meal at Carlos Pulenta as the best of our entire stay in Argentina, including B.A. Our drivers were wonderful and the cost for an entire day of tours-- 4 bodegas-- was about 75 dollars. The finca has great rooms in the back building especially the upstairs room with the terrace. They also have a small tasting room on site with a terrace overlooking the vineyard. The finca is an old family home with lots of charm-- high ceilings, wood floors, verandas, lovely garden, etc.
We really had a wonderful time at Finca Adalgisa. The staff was so helpful and really made our experience fantastic. We ordered a wonderful platter of cheeses and meats; plus some fantastic wine one evening and did not finish the platter as we had such a large lunch at a wonderful winery. I asked them to save the platter in the refrigerator as I couldn't bear the thought of throwing the food out. The staff was more than happy to store our platter and then the next day they served our "leftovers" at the pool along with new bread etc and another bottle of wine. What a place!!! I only hope it will stay this fantastic so when we visit again we can experience another great time.
My wife and I decided to spend some nights outside the city of Mendoza, looking for a calm, relax and fresher place out of the warm and noisy city.
We got a room with a beautiful terrace, so romantic! with an incredible view of the garden, vineyards surrounding the whole property and the Andes mountains as the perfect frame. The service was really a plus: skilled, 100% attitude, well educated but natural.
Gabriela, the owner, show us very kindly the place, and Adrian the P.R. showed us the small but neat winery. He taught us all about the vineyards, wine process and tasting tips. We watched the sunset from the terrace of the winery surrounded by the Malbec vineyards, while we were sipping the awesome Malbec Gabriela produce in there.
The white and cozy coaches of the winery beautiful tasting room, were perfect to finish the day while we enjoy a generous board of different kind of goat cheeses.
Definitely, Finca Adalgisa is a place we highly recommend and where we are definitely trying to come back.
Experience staying in a lovely Argentine country house
If you've ever wondered what it would be like to stay with friends in an Argentine setting, Finca Adalgisa is for you. This charmingly put together estate is on only 2 hectares of property but packs it all in-- a working Malbec vineyard, 3 charmingly different accomodations--in the Main house and two newer buildings one of which is best for whole families--, a swimming pool, a lovely informal dining room for the included breakfast and pre-arranged dinners, a sitting room with fire place, a gratis internet hookup,a wine tasting room --even a small shop which sells local foodstuffs. This place truly has everything, including a most accomodating staff who can not do enough for you--from arranging wonderful private wine tours to getting you to and from town and the airport, to arranging for a massage.
My large room was right in the heart of the oldest building and charmingly furnished with an armoire, two comfortable easy chairs, cocktail table and queen sized bed crowned with old family photos. The room was historic, the ensuite bathroom brand new. Breakfast was delicious and I had an excellent dinner including the house Malbec for 40 Pesos, prix fixe.
There's likely no more economical way to learn about wines than here in Mendoza. My advice would be to do half day tours which, with car and driver and guide, ran about $69.00 and would likely have been the same price for two since the vineyards themselves do not charge for tastings. The full day tour does begin to get repetitive since the basic winemaking method is unaltered. But it's great fun to visit one of the giants--Norton, Chandon, Patigonica--and then visit one of the boutiques like Carmelo Patti or Dolium and sandwich one of the mid sized bodegas like Rupa Malen or Alta Vista in too. That way you can see old methods and new and will come away with a quite consistent knowledge of how wine here is made.
And after all those tastings, you can repair to Finca Adalgisa for still more delicious wine and delightful hospitality.

... to produce the wine were from Treviso: the guide couldn’t believe I was from there… for them Treviso is the main business trip destination in Europe. Ahah!
Second winery: a bit more posh than the first one, more expensive wine here I suppose.
Same story, some introduction of the winery by the owner, la ‘historia’ of their brands and the type of wines they produce. 3 glasses as before: Carmenere (they are the only producer in Argentina for ...
... and various other items. It was funny because a person could sit and be entertained all day without even having to leave the patio. After lunch, it was time to plan the next couple days. Mendoza is a very special place as it is home to the famous Malbec wine, with many, many wineries in the surrounding area, one must do a wine tour while here. We discuss this with our hotel contact and he arranges a 3 vineyard wine tour for the following day, that includes ...

... br> We had also first taste of the Malbec wine (first of many), sitting outside on the bench, having a cigarette and wine, listening to the local guide who was eager to talk about it. I am not a wine expert but I surely appreciate his passion.
Next stop was a tiny vineyard , we listened talk about the wine, getting bit tipsy already since it was really hot and we had few glasses of wine, it was quite fun cycling to another vineyard since I felt like I am gonna get ...
... February to visit!
The trees are losing their spring flowers, thousands of small yellow blossoms dot the sidewalks and streets, many shop owners are out sweeping them up, an endless job. Some of the trees here are shedding their bark as well, an interesting phenomena.
There is a different street business here than in Buenos Aires - in Mendoza each block seems to have a young kid with a couple of buckets, ready to wash cars when they park. ...
