The generous soil and sun in the Mendoza area cause it to be Argentina’s main wine-producing region. Vineyards loaded with ripe grapes and framed by the majestic Andean range, more than 1,500 wineries, horseback riding into the mountain, the annual grape harvest festival each March…
Activities in Mendoza range from private food and wine tours to hiking adventures to the Aconcagua summit. Golf -paired with a glass of the very best Malbec in the world- is also a good choice. And there is no wonder why the wine country is also nurturing a growing art scene worth exploring.
Main hotel chains have properties in Mendoza City. There are wineries with stunning boutique accommodation in the outskirts and along the Uco Valley.
Mendoza City is easily accessible by plane or across the Andes in a full day drive from Santiago de Chile.
