Mendoza Wine Country
Imagine a landscape where snow-capped mountains tower into a brilliant blue sky, and in the fertile foothills row upon row of immaculate vines grow under the hot sun. That landscape is the Mendoza Wine Country, home to Argentina’s 1,500 world class wineries. It is a place of immeasurable beauty, of artistry, of ancestry, and of traditions.
Mendoza City sits at the heart of the region, its colonial buildings framed by the backdrop of the Andean mountain range. The vineyards begin here, stretching as far as the eye can see into the countryside beyond. Sophisticated bodegas (wine lodges) offer wine tastings and tours of the vineyards, but for a more immersive experience guests can stay at luxurious boutique accommodations and enjoy horse riding, hiking in the mountains, and sampling homemade gastronomic delights.
Oyikil Travel can arrange unforgettable experiences in this breathtaking region. Imagine golf paired with the very best Malbec in the world. Or the thrill of a hiking adventure to the Aconcagua summit, the highest peak in the southern hemisphere. Private food and wine tours stimulate all the senses, and the ancient traditions of the annual grape harvest festival each March burst into life.
