From the balcony of Bodega Monteviejo the landscape is made of vineyards that go as far as the eye can see. In the background, the Cordón del Plata, between light and shadow, dramatizes the heady experience of tasting a wine direct from the source.
Mendoza has much more to offer than just wonderful Malbec and Torrontés vintages. Our trip to the region can be described as a new travel experience within contemporary luxury.
Starting with the opportunity to visit several wineries and seeing the entire process of wine production: from planting to tasting.
The trip is an invitation to human interaction, which along the 100km stretch of highway and the more than 1200 wineries is filled with activities. From cycling to horse riding, chats around a campfire or a luxurious dinner table, there’s always two ingredients that can unite even the most different cultures: good food and a glass of wine!
Another positive point of Mendoza is the time. That in the early morning, give us skies like this!
I mean more than hours and minutes ...I'm talking about the feeling that time passes at a different speed around here. When you reach the foot of the Andes you instantly feel the historical richness of the place and realize the way locals value the small details of nature. When you visit the wineries, you understand the greatness of what man can achieve by using what nature offers us. The Casa de Uco Vineyards & Wine Resort has a good memento to make you think about it
The overall travel experience is flawless. With luxurious hotels, such as the fabulous The Vines, that offer the highest level of service, from relaxing Spas to award-winning gastronomy, Mendoza exceeds expectations.
With these landscapes, it’s kind of an unfair fight.
Mendoza alone is responsible for 80% of all Argentine wine production. Here, the wine industry is focused on quality and a constant investment in the improvement of the vineyards and terroir. To our delight, a growing number of wineries open their doors to visitors every year, offering tours and tastings alike. Although the style of the wineries in the region vary greatly, from small boutique vineyards to large and modern operations, they all demonstrate a passion for craftsmanship, quality in their wines and even reaching for that X factor.
Imagine our surprise when arriving at the DiamAndes tasting with our own private piano player.
Learning to make the famous Argentinian Empanadas was also a fun activity. We had the opportunity to do that during a rainy afternoon in the oldest luxury lodge of the region, the Cavas Wine Lodge.
