Fodor's Expert Review Bodega Colomé

Molinos Winery/Brewery/Distillery Fodor's Choice

Remote wineries are one thing, Bodega Colomé is something else altogether. Yet finally arriving at this world-class spot puts the miles of driving along bumpy, unpaved roads firmly into perspective. Established in 1831 and owned by the Swiss Hess Group since 2001, Colomé is Argentina’s oldest winery. A visitor center runs daily tours and offers tastings, while a terrace restaurant serves delectable lunches with views of one of the world’s highest vineyards. Since 2009, Colomé has also been home to the breathtaking and unexpected James Turrell Museum. It showcases five decades of the artist's works with light and space, and includes a fun tunnel of color (advance reservations recommended). Turrell’s contemporary art installations are at their most striking at sunset.
