The festival could not be held this year because of quarantine. But listening to classical music on the wine paths is also possible from home.

Camino de vinos

For 20 years Mendoza has organized the Festival of Classical Music by the Caminos del Vino.

Recently, content on the portal has been shared about the best presentations that the Festival Classical Music for the Caminos del Vino has offered throughout its 20 years of history. Among them stands out the Mendoza Philharmonic Orchestra performing Mozart, outstanding musicians in the Salentein winery in Tunuyán. It also shows the passage of the festival through other types of scenarios that are not directly related to the world of wine, such as the Museo Carlos Alonso de Ciudad, the monument to Cristo Rey of Tupungato or the Villavicencio nature reserve.
