This was our first time in Mendoza and we were staying in the Chacras de Coria area at Pilgrim’s Rest (about to write a very positive review for this hotel!!) and being huge Malbec fans we wanted a proper wine tour around the area. We googled options, the reviews for Cintia and Vistalba were so good! Cintia wrote back to my mom and I right away, after we inquired about a wine tour, and we had a full day of visiting three wineries with a three course meal planned for the next day. Cintia was prompt at picking us up the next day, spoke great English, was very knowledgeable about the area and patiently answered many of our questions. We visited Achaval Ferrar, Matervini, and Renacer, all in the well known Bodega region (pretty sure...). The wines selections, views of the vineyards, and the steak as the main choice paired with a Malbec at the final winery was the best we’d ever had! We were highly impressed with the service from Vistalba, the choices of wineries, and the relationships between Vistalba, Cintia, and the wineries.
If we’re ever back in the Mendoza area, we’d certainly reach out Cintia again, highly recommendable for your wine tour experience and reasonably priced as well.
My wife and I had the most amazing wine touring experience with Cintia, the owner of Vistalba and Juan our tour guide. We booked a small group wine tour with Cintia months in advance. Her choice of wineries ( smaller boutique wineries) was perfect. We ended up getting a private wine tour with Cintia and Juan. Cintia was always on time with pick up and an excellent driver and host. Juan provided invaluable insight on the wineries, the area of Mendoza and the history of Argentina. Cintia and Juan went out of their way to make this a memorable experience. We initially booked two days with Cintia in Lujan and Ucco Valley but added another day to experience wineries in Maipu. No need to look at any other wine tour operators. Cintia and Vistalba will provide an amazing wine touring experience.

The winery is really nice and the staff were very helpful. The Tomero wine was amazing! We ate the "jabali" but the "ternera" was better. Thank you for the wonderful day!

Cintia was amazing. She was professional and ontime at all times. So much knowledge to share about Mendoza and the culture. Her choice of agenda and wineries was perfect. I would suggest you all book with her!

From our emails back and forth about which vineyards to choose Cintia was very helpful, responsive as well as knowledgable. We booked 2 day tours with her not knowing what to expect and wow. I didn't realize the lunch she booked on both days was a 5 course wine pairing on the 1st day and a 3 course wine pairing the 2nd day. I mean wow. We were fed and wine was at our immediate need haha. The vineyards she also chose were incredibly beautiful. We booked the Uco Valley wine tour which is close to the Andes Mountains and the overall beauty is priceless when you're sipping on wine and have this amazing view. The 2nd day we booked a horse riding day which was just as beautiful riding through an older vineyard and the guide she reserved was funny and his horses were calm and a joy to ride. Cintia also made recommendations to us on hotels to stay in Mendoza as well as restaurants. Overall a great personalized experience!
