Cavas Wine Lodge
Sophisticated and indulgent vineyard hotel offering fine vintages and a superb gastronomic experience on the flanks of the Andes.
This beautiful lodge and small vineyard is situated 30km from Mendoza on the flanks of the Andes, and is the perfect place to enjoy fine vintages and a superb gastronomic experience.
The property is listed in the prestigious Relais & Chateaux portfolio.
The main house remains faithful to Spanish colonial traditions. Sunlight floods into the cavernous sitting room and lobby with grand piano, while the cellar is stacked with dozens of Argentina's most celebrated labels.
Each of the 14 individual, adobe-walled apartments opens onto its own Andes-facing patio with a plunge pool and romantic outdoor shower offering views to the snow-capped peaks of the Cordón de Plata. Sitting rooms are equipped with flat-screen TV and CD/DVD player, and the large stone-clad bathrooms have twin basins and a stand-alone bath with separate shower. Décor is in keeping with the lodge’s spacious and simple architectural style: charcoal marbled floors, cool cream walls and subtle lighting predominate.
Horse-riding and trips to other wineries can be organised, and there's a small spa offering wine therapy treatments. There is an excellent restaurant which makes imaginative use of locally produced produce, herbs and spices.
