Ruca Malen's dream began in 1998 when Jean Pierre Thibaud and Jacques Louis de Montalembert confessed to each other the desire to build their own winery in Mendoza. Back then, Jean Pierre was leaving the presidency of Chandon Winery Argentina after 10 years, whilst Jacques Louis had acquired a solid knowledge of winemaking in the Bourgogne region.
Since its first harvest in 1999, Ruca Malen aims to achieve the highest quality in wines, focusing on style, elegance and distinction.
Since 2004 our goal is to offer the best pairings for our wines, while also developing the identity of local products like Lunlunta's superb olive oil or its outstanding beef. Following this philosophy, all the ingredients used in our kitchen are produced in Mendoza. Moreover, our head chef Lucas Bustos grows vegetables and aromatic herbs in our garden and changes the menu according to what the land offers each season. Ruca Malen was one of the wineries that pioneered the concept of tasting menu. Nowadays, we are known as one of the most successful winery restaurants in Argentina.
We offer guided tours that include a picnic, lunch or tapas in our garden. We also offer simple tastings, games with blends and vertical tastings. We have tour guides that speak English, French and Portuguese perfectly. We are committed to making Ruca Malen Winery your best memory of your stay in Mendoza.

What I liked particularly about Ruca Malén Petit Verdot 2012 Mendoza was the intense, ripe Petit Verdot perfume of crystallised violets with a suggestion of red-pimento powderJANCIS ROBINSON
