Mendoza is the perfect destination wedding spot for those looking for an intimate experience. If you are looking for a boutique option or prioritizing comfort, environment, distances, architecture and landscape, the wineries in Mendoza can deliver on all your criteria. The gardens and the outdoor spaces provide the perfect backdrop for your wedding pictures and if the weather is unsuitable, an indoor chamber surrounded by oak barrels and tanks can provide an ethereal charm to your wedding.
To curate the perfect wedding spot for your special day, we interviewed Luciana Cerutti from Ketek EVT, a company that specializes in organizing events at wineries and vineyards.
Not only do the wineries provide a dreamy and unique environment, but also the exquisite gastronomy and wines that position them with first-level quality standards. As a matter of fact, Mendoza is the home place for the best wineries in the world, the best winery restaurants and wineries with enologists that achieved historical record ratings for their wines. Moreover, Mendoza was selected as one of the ten best places to live in and as a chosen destination for 2020.
Mendoza’s air connection with the world is a fact. Every day there are more direct flights that set us closer to the world. What’s more, the current economic situation with a favorable exchange rate for foreign currencies gives us a decisive advantage when it comes to providing an estimate. Also, another detail, just as important, is the marriage equality that places Mendoza avant-garde, with options for couples who want to get married.
Definitely. There exist wineries that are originated with this idea in mind. They are created to hold these kinds of events. Also, there are others that are transformed in order to be included among the alternatives.
Along the wineries, we find the synergy that is generated with the hotel industry. Both allow lodging the guests in the location where the event takes place at a very convenient distance. And, of course, offering excellent services and the most exquisite landscapes of Mendoza.
When such an idea is starting to take shape, it is essential to develop it with an expert. Thus, from the very beginning, there will be an orientation that will show the different alternatives according to each goal, presenting the locations based on their advantages and strengths. And they will always accompany you with the decision from the beginning to the end.

4) Otaviano Winery
Otaviano is a modern and comfortable winery that offers an ideal space to celebrate engagements and weddings. Their huge garden full of green spaces and their own vineyards are the options chosen by many for the installation of different styles of tents and make the most of the outdoor field while enjoying the magical night sky. The natural environment and the quietness that Alto Agrelo provides are some of the reasons why many select them. Chef Jesus Chaiza is in charge of the gastronomy and along with his team, they offer an alternative of their cuisine according to every couple’s needs.
This winery of Spanish roots built in the middle of the vineyards in Agrelo, Lujan de Cuyo is the epitome of elegance.

Located in Maipu, this family winery is passionate about wine and memories. That’s why some years ago they decided to start offering their own wedding services.

They have different spaces and each of them can hold a special moment: the civil ceremony in the cellar, the party in the family house, the sunset by the lake.
