Fodor's Expert Review Ruca Malén

Lujan de Cuyo Winery/Brewery/Distillery Fodor's Choice

Business has been booming at Ruca Malén ever since the Great Wine Capitals network dubbed its winery restaurant the “world’s best” in 2014, but lunch here is still a relaxed experience; two smaller dining rooms and outdoor tables keep it intimate. Chef Lucas Bustos and winemaker Pablo Cuneo masterfully pair colorful dishes with Ruca's predominantly red wines. The well-run tourism department leads interesting tours around the modern facility and offers an option of wine flights, which can include vertical tastings of different vintages or a fun blending session. As an added bonus, the winery has stunning views throughout.
