Argentina is perhaps best known for its grasslands and for the cosmopolitan city of Buenos Aires. Mendoza shows another side of this South American country all together. Located in Western Argentina, in the foothills of the Andes, Mendoza is covered with vineyards. Some of the best wines in South America are produced right here in a microclimate that is ideal for growing flavorful grapes.
The vacation and event venues in Mendoza embrace the kind of rustic elegance that characterizes this part of Argentina. Chiminea-style fireplaces, outdoor sitting areas and adobe-style buildings are a common sight here in the foothills of the southern Andes. This is one of those destinations where you can really immerse yourself in the experience. Mendoza is also a totally different wine-country experience compared to what you will get in other vineyard areas in California and in Europe.
