Belasco de Baquedano
Discover your child´s inner Robert Parker Junior. Let their noses run wild in this winery´s unique aroma room – a large hall of perspex stands that invite sniffing and guessing each aroma. Be prepared to be beaten by your six year old as they pick up pineapple notes quicker than your ageing snout.
Susana Balbo Dominio del Plata
Argentina´s matriarch of wine shows her maternal instincts by installing swings and slides in the winery’s large expansive garden. There is lots of space to explore whils the adults munch through delicious multi-course meals with wine pairings.
A beautiful mix of old and new. Splendid views of the vineyards and thge mountains. They offer a great experience for the family. They give little baskets to the kids so they can collect whatever they find in the vinyard (leaves, seeds, feathers, rocks, grapes). Later, the adults are tasting and the children creating their own collages while they all enjoy a cheese and cold cuts table.
