Mendoza & the Wine Region
Mendoza is one of the greatest wine regions of the world. With over 144,000ha of planted vineyards it produces nearly two-thirds of the country’s wine. Argentina’s most highly rated Malbec wines originate from Mendoza’s high altitude wine regions of Lujan de Cuyo and the Uco Valley. These areas are in the foothills of the Andes mountains, with elevations of between 2,800 and 5,000 feet. These wide open spaces are nothing but vines, mountain grandeur and blue skies, and some of the best winery architecture in the world. This is one of the best places in the world to drink wine with wineries ranging from small, family owned cozy vineyards to large production, modern architectural masterpieces. What all have in common is a strong sense of heritage and commitment to quality – as well as a warmth unlike anywhere else in the world. This is a destination you truly don't want to miss!
