The Enoteca, located in the Civic Center of Mendoza is the only architectural testimony existing, together with some tree species, of the National School of Vitiviniculture, fundamental milestone of the oenological studies of the country. In it the first "winemakers" were formed, who with their prolific work contributed to give scientific bases to Mendoza's main industry. Today, the old cellar, coexists with new uses and buildings of more recent production, in one of the most significant urban spaces of the city: the Civic Center. Through an agreement between the Fondo Vitivinícola Mendoza and the Ministry of Tourism and Culture, Enoteca recovered its original meaning and is projected as the Wine Thematic Center. This initiative, which dates from 2002, has as main objective to take advantage of the physical structure of the Enoteca for the promotion of wine culture and tourism.
