Tree-lined avenues, snow-capped peaks and the finest Malbec around
Nestled at the base of the Andes, Mendoza is a mecca for wine and adventure tourism. With over 397,000 acres of vineyards and 1,000 wineries, more than 80% of all Argentine wines originate in Mendoza, including the world’s best Malbec. In fact, Mendoza is the largest wine producing region in Latin America. Mendoza captivates travelers with its relaxed pace and idyllic serenity which has characterized the provincial capital since its founding in 1561. But, don’t get too lazy; Mendoza offers world-class biking, rafting, fishing, horseback riding, and hiking.
- Mendoza is a great Santiago add-on as the flight is less than 45-minutes long.
- We recommend going from October to May for the nice weather, and February/March for the harvest season.
- The region has about 320 sunny days per year.
