A complete new and awaited service begins today! MALBEC POR FAVOR WINE CLUB is now a reality. Just as I, personally, dreamed of how it would be.
The ¨Concierge¨ service of Malbec Por Favor Wine Club is unique and the one thing gives sense to the club, specially the word ¨club¨. It implies the idea of gathering and meeting with family and friends. When you join the Club you will be able to profit from this great benefit. Furthermore you will be able to accommodate your tour as you like and I direct communication with me personally!
Here´s a little introduction to who I am:
I am Mauricio, “the wine guy”. Like many other stories of many, many people, I became who I am as a result of having being related to the industry of winemaking since my early youth. I come from a family that goes back 300 years in Mendoza and they have always being related to agriculture and wine making. Since the birth of Mendoza as one of the federal independent states of Argentina, the Molina´s have been involved in agricultural activities but also into politics (2 of my great grand parents were governors of this province), where they played an important role in the development and growth of Mendoza.
My father was a winemaker, he was an agricultural engineer, specialized in wine making and worked for the National Institute of Viticulture, (the official organization that regulates the industry). and when I was a kid, he used to take me with him to the lab and showed me the processes of analysis of wines. He used to tell me “Mauricito, this wine is supposed to be good but this one here is much, much better, although it costs less”.
When I turned fourteen, he,(my father) was offered a job in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) at a winery called Monis Wineries and he accepted. I used to help him in the lab and even sometimes drove the truck to carry materials to and from the winery. I remember, once he made a wine with strawberries that was really good.
After returning and settling back in Mendoza, I begun to learn more about the wine industry and used to take people to wineries when there was no one else doing it. I left Argentina once more, and this time it was to South Africa where I traveled to the wine region in Stellenbosch and Paarl, South Africa, to learn more about it, and again returned to Mendoza to continue with my studies in public relations and history.
Mendoza captures the heart of every visitor and not only because of its wine but also for it’s the beauty and the warmth of its people.
I say to you, “Come and enjoy our hospitality and allow yourselves to be driven by the natural flow of our beautiful and relaxed way of life. Drink our wine and experience our great climate right here in the ‘land of the sun and good wine’”.
Malbec Porfavor Wine Tours experienced staff of tour planners and professional wine guides will help you plan the ultimate insider getaway. From wine novice to an experienced connoisseur, Malbec Porfavor Wine Tours can custom design a wine tour to meet your needs. The dedicated staff has developed extensive relationships with both the small family "boutique" wineries, as well as the larger well-known wine estates; allowing Malbec Porfavor Tours access and privileges for their clients which are not generally afforded to the public.
If you have never been wine tasting in Mendoza before, or perhaps you are new to the world of wine, then you may benefit from taking a couple of days to experience one of our Introductory to Mendoza Tours. While hard-to-find boutique Mendoza wineries along the road less traveled may appeal to returning guests and the more established oenophiles, new visitors often desire building their wine foundation by touring iconic Mendoza wine brands and historic landmark estates. We believe a combination of both large historic estates and smaller, boutique family-owned wineries can provide the best overall learning experience, while allowing our guests to view a broad range of geography throughout Mendoza.
