    Embalse El Nihuil

    After 1/2 hour trip on the 173 road, we get to "Cuesta de los Terneros" (Calf's hill), where is possible to see all the city and the valley where are a lot of farms.

    In an hour, we stay in El Nihuil, an enormous lake where people do nautical sports (kayak, windsurf, canoa, etc.)

    There is a Private Club "Club de Pescadores" (15 years ago, people in San Rafael had their weekend houses here), and in the other side is settle the Nihuil's population (There is a camping in this area)

    Bianchi Winery

    by trvlrtom Updated Apr 4, 2011
    Bianchi winery

    Valentín Bianchi winery is located just north of San Rafael, on the road to Mendoza. The large winery has an excellent tour, similar to other established wineries in the region, that explains the production process. What makes Bianchi different is the production of sparkling wines, aka chambagne, which is well described in the tour. This was pretty interesting.

    Along the wine shop there is also some art displays.

    Visit an olive oil factory

    by trvlrtom Written Aug 22, 2007

    Once you've tried wine tasting, you might enjoy a similar experience with olive oil. Yancanelo, located just outside of San Rafael on the road to Mendoza, has a small museum that includes a tour and tasting. It's actually quite interesting. The shop has a good variety of items, including local preserves and olives.
