Few restaurants in Mendoza have picked up a cult following quite as quickly as Casa Vigil did. Within a year of opening, the restaurant had become one of the top listings on Trip Advisor - pipping hundreds of other restaurants to the post.
What is so special about the experience of Casa Vigil, you might ask. The answer is there in the name - Casa Vigil literally means the House of Vigil, and Vigil happens to refer to one of Argentina’s most respected winemakers, Alejandro Vigil. The tables here book up well in advance as wine lovers congregate from all over the globe in order to enjoy an intimate experience of Alejandro Vigil’s El Enemigo wines and dine in his home restaurant in the vine garden next to his boutique winery. With this in mind, the Mendoza jury awarded Casa Vigil a regional ‘Best Of Wine Tourism’ award for a wine tourism restaurant.
Adelaide is eagerly looking forward to hosting the Great Wine Capitals of the World Network Annual General Meeting in 2018.
