Award-winning wines and unbelievable landscapes in Western Argentina

Nestled against the foothills of the Andes, in Western Argentina, you’ll find style, rich culture and some of the country’s most famous and luxurious wineries.

The city of Mendoza serves as the gateway to the Winelands, and its picturesque colonial-style architecture, leafy avenues, and brilliant restaurants make for a rich and cosmopolitan base to soak up the incredible views of The Andes; the second-highest range of mountains in the world.

The surrounding bodegas (vineyards) are well known for producing flavorsome, award-winning reds, including what is largely known to be the best Malbec in the world. You can base yourself in Mendoza and take a wine tour or, as we like to do, book a few nights' stays in a luxury bodega and immerse yourself in the beauty, charm and tranquillity of this impeccable Argentinian region. The luxury, boutique-style hotels and lodges in this area ooze charm, serenity and sophistication, and there really is no better feeling than sitting on your patio, as the moon casts its gentle glow across the vines and the mountains behind whilst you sip a flavourful red and gaze up at the stars.

For those who prefer a more active vacation, you won’t be disappointed; biking, horse riding and skiing are also popular activities in and around Mendoza, and the Mendoza River offers adrenaline-pumping white water rafting expeditions throughout the year. Hikers will love exploring wild walking routes through the Andes around Cacheuta, Cerro Arco and El Salto. Intrepid trekkers can even take on the second highest peak in the world; Mount Aconcagua, which doesn’t require technical climbing knowhow and towers over South America at a staggering 6962 meters.

However you like to travel and whatever your interest, a few days in Mendoza is a vital part of any luxury Argentina vacation.

When to go to Mendoza & The Winelands

October through April are the best and most popular months to visit Mendoza. Temperatures are warmer, and the wineries are hives of activity. September through February is Argentina’s Summer, and temperatures can soar to 35 or even 40 degrees Celsius during the day, so be sure to pack sun protection and a hat.

Rain falls often in January and February as the heat breaks to make way for the cooler Autumn months, and leaves turn a beautiful golden brown.

April and May are our favorite times of year to visit as temperatures are mild, tourist numbers are lower, the wineries have completed their harvest, and the winemaking process begins.
