4 days 3 nights
At the airport you can pick up your car and get ready to explore Mendoza region with some of the most renounced vineyards in the world. Spend the next 2 nights in Lujan de Cuyo B&B.
With so many wineries in Mendoza, picking which ones to visit isn’t easy. These are spread across three main regions – Maipú, Luján de Cuyo and Uco Valley, each of them having its charm.
The province of Mendoza is the biggest wine producer in Argentina (the other one is Cafayate, in the Salta Province), and one of the biggest in South America. Here, a combination of excellent soil, favorable weather conditions and the know-how of the people who moved to the region in the late 19th century contributed to the growth of vineyards and to the development of the wine industry. Accommodation at Lujan de Cuyo B&B.
Some of the best vineyards in the region are:
Bodega Catena Zapata
Bodega Luigi Bosca
If good wine is what you want, you are going to find it in Mendoza. In fact, Mendoza wine is simply fantastic (I have a soft spot for Malbec, I admit it), and there are a lot of vineyards in Mendoza where you can try it – each of them offering a different kind of experience.
Return to the Airport to return the car rental and continue your journey to Argentina or other destionations.
