Why visit Mendoza & Wine Regions
The province of Mendoza, situated at the foot of the glorious Andean Mountains, is the most prominent wine region in Argentina and the fifth most bountiful in the world. Once a dry and arid expanse of land, the vineyards that are located in this semi-arid desert rely on mountain rivers fed by melted Andean glaciers.
The wines produced here are world renowned, favoured for their unique flavour that is owed to high altitude and intense sunlight. Visitors to the region can explore the numerous vineyards, sample the produce in carefully paired culinary experiences, and even venture in to the Andes.
