Brands produced at Bodega la Rural include Felipe Rutini, Trumpeter, and San Felipe (characterized by an oddly shaped bottle).

Do

Learn Spanish in the city of Mendoza to appreciate the culture more.

As with many places in Argentina, there are a variety of Spanish courses and private lessons are available. There are two extablished language schools, both disorganized but fun, in Mendoza: Intercultural , has a range of afternoon activities especailly appropriate for young partiers, and is slightly more expensive;Greenfields (aka COINED, after the web bookers) is smaller and feels even less well organised, but many of the teachers work at both schools.

Another great option for individual or very small tailor-made quality group lessons with a highly trained instructor: Spanish in Mendoza, Argentina (SIMA). This is a better option for those seriously interested in learning or improving their Spanish, although the classes are very enjoyable.
