Mendoza

Argentina's picturesque wine country

If you have a taste for exemplary wines, culinary delights, adventure, luxury boutique properties and all the delights of a picturesque countryside, you will be overjoyed with what Mendoza has to offer.

Nestled at the heart of Argentina’s wine country, in a region known as the “land of sunshine and wine”, the city of Mendoza is a fantastic base from which to explore the rest of the province. Sprawled across a verdant valley and crossed by a beautiful river, rows of lush green vineyards carpet the hills as far as the eye can see.

Thanks its balmy climate and fertile soils, the Mendoza province is responsible for producing the majority of Argentina’s wines with hundreds of wineries scattered about the area. You can happily spend your days here meeting local winemakers and sampling the region’s best on guided tours and tastings.

When you’re not sipping on fine wines, there are endless opportunities for outdoor adventures. You could go horse riding, trekking, mountain-biking and even river rafting along the Mendoza River. If you wish for a bigger challenge, the nearby summit of Mt Aconcagua – South America’s tallest peak – awaits.

But if you’ve just come to relax you might want to spend your time going on leisurely strolls through the rolling countryside or taking laid-back cycling tours of nearby wineries.

If you’d like to start creating your tailor-made trip, speak to any of our Argentina specialists.

  • It was an extraordinary, wonderful and memorable vacation. Thank you to everyone.
