Mendoza is the heart of the winemaking industry in Argentina with more than 80% of wines originating here, including the world’s best Malbec. Located in the eastern foothills of the Andes, vineyards are planted at some of the highest altitudes in the world. Mendoza captivates travelers with its relaxed pace and idyllic serenity, which has characterized the provincial capital since its founding in 1561.
