The province and city of Mendoza is the main export wine region of Argentina, famous for Malbec. The city and region has a stunning location beneath the eastern flanks of the soaring Andes Mountains. Here, the Andes are at their highest point, snow-capped and rising majestically from the desert. It is here, in the vineyards with views to the Andes that you will find the most exquisite wine lodges that excel in service, sommelier expertise, fine dining, luxury and privacy.
The region around the town of Cayfayate, to the North West of Mendoza, less accessible but well worth the journey, is another wine region worthy of exploration. Torrontes is a speciality, grown at higher altitude along with Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon.
