Mendoza Holidays

At the foot of the Andes, Mendoza is an attractive city best known for its plentiful vineyards that now produce over 70% of Argentina's wines. The wine capital of Argentina has tree-lined avenues, huge villas, small adobe house and wineries, while in the neighbouring countryside there are some truly magnificent wine-producing estates to explore with the backdrop of the Andes close by. The northern zone is best for fruity whites and young reds whilst the Uco Valley produces wines with good acidity at just the right altitude for young vines to thrive.

Several of these wineries now offer luxurious accommodation to visitors and those interested in finding out more about viticulture on their Mendoza holidays. Spend some time wine-tasting on your Mendoza holiday learning about wine production or simply enjoying the stunning scenery.

Overland to Chile

A Mendoza tour can include the overland route to Chile which crosses a high pass via Aconcagua and takes you through truly spectacular scenery towards Santiago, another valley famed for its wines - a wonderful combination tour for wine-lovers.
