Atamisque Winery

In the Uco Valley, in the district of San José of Tupungato, on Route 86, famously known as the “Ruta del Vino” or “Wine Route”, appears the “Atamisque” estate. At the entrance, a grove of poplars welcomes visitors. The main entry is behind a stone wall. Here, one can grasp entirely the rich diversity of this philosophically interesting project. The owners John and Chantal Du Monceau invite you to discover and to enjoy the harmony between leisure, recreation and the sound of nature.
