Argentina: Mendoza and the vineyards

Visit Us

The province of Mendoza’s claim to be “the land of sunshine and wine” isn’t far off the mark. Lying in the rain-shadow of the ever visible snow-capped Andes, the landscape is studded with vineyards, and some of the country’s best wines are produced here. The pleasant city of lakeside Mendoza retains some 19th century character and is full of fine open spaces with a shady canopy of sycamores. The city is a good base for adventure activities; wine lovers might choose to stay at one of the wineries which welcome visitors in the sparkling air of the countryside close by.

Our insider tips for Mendoza and the vineyards

David

David Nichols

Go Malbec tasting at one of the city’s many bodegas (wineries) or at a wine estate in the pretty countryside, many of whom can arrange shipment of your favorites back to the UK.

Wander round the streets of Mendoza city, which has some interesting museums, an pleasant zoo, excellent restaurants and a lively nightlife.

Paul

Paul Winrow-Giffin

At 6,960m Mount Aconcagua, is the highest mountain in the Americas. You have to be superfit to conquer the peak so an easier option to view the majestic mountain for yourself is to travelling along the road towards Santiago, on a scenic day trip out of Mendoza. Alternatively, if you are flying to Santiago from Mendoza or Buenos Aires, sit on the right for the chance of close up eye-level views.

What our experts say

We heartily recommend a stay at Cavas Wine Lodge in the Mendoza region. Eating and wine-drinking here are an unashamed luxury, complemented by a handy spa and small gym.
