National Harvest Festival

The National Harvest Festival is one of the most famous worldwide celebrations, the second most important harvest celebration in the world after Thanksgiving Day, according to National Geographic.  It is an event where local people pay tribute to the wine production and its work. Celebrations start in January each year in the 18 districts of the Province of Mendoza, each one with its own characteristics. A series of events take place around this celebration. It starts on the last week of February, until the main ceremony is celebrated on the first weekend of March, at the Frank Romero Day Greek Theater. This show brings together more than 1000 artists on stage with scenes in different dimensions where the traditional folk music gains prominence as the origin of a culture built together with creoles and immigrants who work the land to get the fruit of the new wine. The close with flourish is given by the election of the National Harvest Queen at the end of the show, who will represent the province throughout the year.

In the Nave Cultural was held the award of Best of Mendoza's Wine Tourism 2018, a contest that recognizes excellence in wine tourism. The gold winners will participate in the global event next month in Casablanca, Chile.

Glass has been essential to the preservation of wine over many centuries and continues to sustain the industry today. Thus it is quite fitting that last year’s Great Wine Capital’s ‘Best Of Wine Tourism’ Award winner in Sustainability in Mendoza was Verallia, one of the world’s largest glass bottle producers.

Bodega Casa Vigil

Casa Vigil is located in a beautiful location in the heart of the department of Maipú, Mendoza. This is a winery that offers its visitors a different outing in which wine and literature are combined to give way to a unique wine tourism experience. Alejandro Vigil takes you to the magic world of Dante’s Divine Comedy in his Casa Vigil.

 

Casa Vigil belongs to the very well-known agronomic engineer Alejandro Vigil. It offers —to locals and visitors- a particular charm originating from the fusion of Maipu’s landscape —a traditional wine region of Mendoza-, innovative architecture and an inviting menu. Each plate is prepared with products from our orchard. The excellently ranked wines are the treasure of the winery where art and history are the pillars of this great sensory experience.

Dante Alighieri’s glorious poem is the conceptual inspiration sensed in every corner of the winery.

Here in Maipú visitors are seduced by a blend of flavors and delighted by the whole portfolio of Enemigo wines. Under the eyes of Dante, Virgil and Beatrice, Casa Vigil presents its dishes, which breathe the magic world of the Divine Comedy felt all through the winery.
