How to Get There
Bodega Renacer is located about a 30-minute drive south of Mendoza city in the Perdriel region. Biking is a popular way to reach the winery, but the hop-on hop-off Vitivinicola bus also stops outside.
When to Get There
The winery is open daily. Although wine tours are possible year-round, the most pleasant time to explore the vineyards is in spring and summer, from October through March.
Exploring the Perdriel Wine Region
Perdriel, a Lujan de Cuyo subregion, is known for its terroir, which is credited with producing some of Mendoza's top malbecs. The area features some of Mendoza's oldest vines, and its slightly higher altitude and proximity to the Mendoza River offer a moderately cooler climate that produces soils ideal for growing malbec and cabernet sauvignon grapes. Made in one of few regions that still carries the Controlled Designation of Origin mark, Perdriel wines are known to be top quality.
