What you'll do

Welcome to the Cava Escondida! We'll begin our dinner experience with a sparkling wine toast on the terrace of my garden. After all of the guests have arrived, we'll move to the wine cave for our appetizer course. My home was originally built by a prominent Mendocino winery family. So it's a special treat to experience the cave because it's unusual to have a fully outfitted wine cave in a private home. I'll be happy to show you around and explain my wine collection.

After we finish in the wine cave, we'll go outside to the garden (weather permitting), to enjoy a seasonal fresh salad along with the main course, which will be grilled on the outdoor parilla grill. You'll have an opportunity to learn more about the theory and practice of of Argentine asado (barbecue) from the chef.

Finally, we'll finish the evening with a traditional dessert and late harvest wine. Enjoy!
Other things to note
Please let us know of any dietary restrictions.

This is such a great evening! Its a nice chance to be entertained without having to think where are we going to eat tonight and how do we entertain ourselves. It's actually good value as the wines are good quality and the food professionally cooked with good service. The house is stunning so lots to see behind what you see from the street. Thank you all.

A fabulous evening of great food and wine, and friendship. We were a small group of well-travelled people from around the world: UK, US, Canada, Netherlands, and Argentina. Everyone shared interesting personal stories and we had a whole lot of laughs.

This dinner and wine tasting takes place in the host’s home which is modern and lovely. The event starts in their beautiful lit garden with pool then proceeds to the wine “cave” which Brian had finished when he bought the house. The multi-course meal was fabulous and inventive with wine pairings for each course. The other guests from the Netherlands, U.S. and U.K. were all engaged and entertaining. Our hosts looked after us throughout the evening.

Brian is an incredible host, who has lived in Mendoza for several, several years so you can learn about the city, his experience here, as well as details about each of the many gourmet foods and rare wines you will try. Book now!!

Wow, was this phenomenal! I chose to do this experience after attending Brian and Felipe's wine tour https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/314729. The dinner was simply incredible. World-class food, incredible wines and an unforgettable atmosphere. I can't do gluten, and they made sure to have everything available gluten-free for me (the empanadas were on point). The cava is gorgeous, and Brian told the most amazing history of the house and the wine-producing family that built it. Beyond the unforgettable food and experience, Brian is an amazing host and person. I had so much fun getting to know him. I can't wait to explore more of Mendoza with Brian and Felipe when I come back! Gracias por todo!!!!
