Enjoy a culinary proposal now included in the Michelin Voyage guide.
Located in Chachingo, Maipú, only half an hour away from the city of Mendoza, Casa Vigil has been rewarded with many different international recognitions, and it was distinguished not only for the great preparations you will find on its menu to pair its wines, but also for its originality and local art exhibit. “An attractive and atypical place”, is one of the reviews of the Michelin Voyage guide.
With so many good reviews, surely you´re curious and eager to see and taste for yourself what all this is about. This is definitely an experience that you can’t miss on your visit to Mendoza.
When in town, you will be picked up from your hotel and visit 2 important wine cellars that we will carefully choose for you, before the end of the experience in Casa Vigil, where you’ll visit the cellar where El Enemigo and El Gran Enemigo are made. Alejandro Vigil and his wife Maria live next door, so it is common that he can step in and say hello to all the people who attend the restaurant.
Alejandro Vigil is one of the most prestigious winemakers in Argentina. He has been the main enologist and technical director at Catena Zapata Vineyards for a long time. A few years ago, he started working with Laura Catena and created his own brand, called Aleanna Winery, and introduced to the world his own creation: “El Enemigo”. From its very first impression, the name symbolizes the opposite to the other wine producers that want to join the idea of wine and friendship. However, the creative name given to this wine “The Enemy” has conquered the market, and broke all the records on the most distinguished review magazines.
He is passionate for the grapevines, the beautifully designed labels, the bottles, all done under his careful supervision. And the same passion is reflected in his own restaurant: Casa Vigil (formerly called El Enemigo), where his guests can savour exquisite local cuisine and its emblem wine.
The visit includes an exquisite gourmet lunch and of course, you won´t leave without tasting some of the house´s internationally prized wines, joined by one of the best wine experts in the world: the staff will guide you through a “Great Enemy” wine tasting experience.
