Explore Mendoza on Your Terms
Wine lovers from all over the world flock to Mendoza to sample the wine this region is famous for. From novice wine drinkers to experienced aficionados, anyone who loves wine will have a wonderful time here. There are three wine regions in the province of Mendoza – Maipu, Lujan de Cuyo, and Uco Valley – where you can try the Malbec the region is famous for. Maipu and Lujan de Cuyo are relatively close to the city, and so are a bit easier to explore. If you have a bit more time, you can venture into the Uco Valley, which is Mendoza’s most important wine producing region.
While wine is the most well-known attraction for Mendoza, wine tasting is just the tip of the iceberg of what there is to do here. If you are looking to get outdoors as well, you can take advantage of the different activities available with the setting in the foothills of the Andes. For those who have more of a taste for adventure, you can try rock climbing, white water rafting, hiking, or even skiing during the winter. If you want a bit tamer adventure, you can look at a horseback excursion through the Andes, followed by a delicious meal with a glass of Mendoza’s famous Malbec.
Mendoza is also the perfect place to have this delicious meal – with all of this incredible wine, you need incredible food to go with it. Many wineries have pairing menus, and some of Argentina’s most famous chefs have restaurants in Mendoza specifically for this reason.
So whether your goal is to enjoy incredible food, delicious wine, or adventure with an unbeatable backdrop, Mendoza is a perfect addition to your Argentine vacation!
