“Dos Plumas”…a 5 star fully modern lodge with a professional bilingual lodge staff, wonderful food, the best of Argentine wines and spirits, and most of all, a man who built his dream lodge and business slowly and meticulously. This man, Ramiro, personally meets you upon arrival in Mendoza or San Luis, escorts you, and sees to your every request until you depart. You are his guest.

Let me start by saying this was my 19th trip to Argentina with many different Argentinian outfitters. In all of those trips I can honestly say Dos Plumas was my best overall experience. It’s hard to express all of the things that set Ramiro’s lodge apart. The lodge is beautiful, spotless and a reflection of years of planning. The staff is professional, courteous, warm and friendly. People often refer to cooks as chefs, there is a lot of difference between a cook and a chef. Leo is without a doubt a Master Chef. I’ve never had more beautifully prepared meals nor so diversified in any sporting camp; from the wonderful filet minion, baked trout, osso buco raviloi, soups and deserts. The Pigeon shooting was outstanding just as promised…no, “Better than promised,” – Wes.

Mendoza Area

San Luis, Argentina
Unparalleled Pigeon and Dove Shooting

Dos Plumas “Two Feathers” Lodge makes reference to the two species of birds you will enjoy shooting here, “Spot Winged Pigeon” and the “Eared Dove.”

Located near the small town of Lujan-San Luis, here Ramiro has exclusive wingshooting rights to more than 200 thousand cultivated, private acres. With the lodge not being far from Mendoza we can easily combine your wingshoot with a wine tour of Mendoza. Both Dove and Pigeon are here by the millions and here is the reason, farmers control the water by irrigation. They sow seeds every 15 days such as sunflower, corn, sorghum, wheat and soybeans. With this, the farmers are also harvesting every 15 days, assuring year round food for the birds.

 

A typical day consists of a wake-up call at 7 a.m. After a large breakfast you will be driven to the field for your shoot. Depending on where the best pre-scouted field exists, drives to the fields are anywhere from 15 to 50 minutes. You will shoot until 12:30 then enjoy a typical Argentina Gaucho style barbecue, relax and begin shooting again at 2:30 p.m. You will shoot until sunset. Upon returning to the lodge you will be received with drinks at the open bar, enjoying hors d’oeuvres that include Chef specialty dishes of dove and pigeon. Dinner is normally served at 7:30 p.m. Depending on the season guests can relax around the pool, the outdoor fire pit or the living room fire place.

Quite often we are asked about the weather in this region. Normally it is sunny and mild weather with very little rain. The temperatures not only vary between the season but between morning, afternoon and evening hours. Here are some normal weather examples: April and May – Dry with temperatures between 60°F  and 80°F. June, July and August – Dry with temperatures ranging from 30°F to 65°F. September and October – Some rain with temperatures from 65°F  to 85°F. November and March – Some rain with temperatures from 70°F  to 90° F.

Due to this lodge being located between San Luis and Mendoza our guests can choose to fly into Buenos Aires and connect to San Luis or Santiago de Chile connecting to Mendoza. Regardless of your arrival location we will meet you upon arrival and transport you to the lodge and return you to the same.

Lodging

Construction of a new lodge for our guests was completed in April 2015. The lodge features five spacious double rooms, each with private bathrooms, two large beds, a dressing room and air conditioner. Private rooms are available at no additional charge as space permits.

The lodge chef prepares the tastiest dishes of Argentine Style gourmet meals made with products of the region. The wines at the lodge are the best of Mendoza, most often ranked as the premium wines in Argentina.
