Highlights of Argentina

Mendoza and The Wine Country

Scroll

The provinces of Mendoza, San Juan, and San Luis reach over the high Andes to the semi-arid steppes. It is a landscape of breathtaking peaks, fertile valleys and irrigated vineyards. There are countless opportunities to enjoy a whole variety of active pursuits including skiing, horse riding, rafting, trekking and hiking, whilst the more sedentary can relax in thermal baths at hot springs, enjoy fine dining and world-class wines at the numerous bodegas.

Set against the mighty Mt Aconcagua – at 6,959 metres the highest mountain in the Americas – the province of Mendoza has been Argentina’s leading wine producing region since the 16th century. Together with San Juan it is responsible for over 80% of the country’s wine as well as olive oil, garlic and a variety of fruits and vegetables. The vineyards of Lujan de Cuyo and Maipu produce some of the best Malbec in the world, and the wines of the Uco Valley, about 50 miles southwest of Mendoza, are increasing in importance. Many wineries open their doors to visitors to taste fine wines, meet the winemaker and enjoy tasty regional and international cuisine.
