Casa David Wine & Horses

Mendoza | Argentina

Casa David Wine & Horses an original option

At the foot of the imposing Andes Mountain range, a traditional family with a long business presence, presents a new proposal with high standards of technology and quality, which adds one more option in wine tourism. In 40 hectares of vineyards, where the grapes that are later produced under referential labels are grown, landscape, nature, architecture, wines, customs and the equine world come together.

The experience offers the possibility of holding business or private events in its Club House, weddings, rides in traditional carriages, harvesting vines in the old way, hiking, cycle tourism, horse back riding, accommodation in exclusive lodges, uniting the equine world with viticulture. The presence of an oratory in a unique place accompanies the undertaking

The Club House: The big jump

With an original architecture, built with noble materials, a cellar and a collection of wines with its own labels and from the outstanding wineries and cells for private wine cellars for clients, a tasting room with an exhibition of artisanal products can add to the experience. The main hall has a capacity for 150 guests, ideal for weddings, corporate, cultural and social events.

Horses World

This project combines the world of viticulture with the equine. Since colonial times, the horse breed has collaborated in agricultural tasks, either pulling the plow or in harvest times hauling carts that carried the vines to the winery presses. For this reason, it has been wanted to unite, in 10 hectares, the destiny of the vine with the horse, creating a Haras for the breeding of animals for slaughter in agricultural tasks and the reproduction and training of jumping horses, which combine the distinction of a sport and the elegance of the animals, with the quality of its grapes and final products, its great wines.

It has a reproduction center and gestation, laboratory and veterinary services; stable with 24 boxes. . For the training and care of the horse, it has a round alfalfa paddock, a grassy track for jumping, two before sand tracks for warming up and a swimming pool for when the animals have finished their performances together with a Club House for riders.

The first Copa Casa David  competition was held in 2022, in which 230 Argentine competitors participated, with the attendance of 2,500 people, an event highlighted by the national and international press. International clinics related to the specialty are also held there. The venue has the endorsement of the Argentine Equestrian Federation for regional and national show jumping tournaments.
