Mendoza is the epicenter of South America’s wine producing regions. Located in western Argentina and just a stone’s throw from the Chilean border, Mendoza is blessed with year-round sunshine and more wineries and wine bars than anywhere in South America.
With numerous world-class wine producers in the region, a visit to Mendoza must include at least one wine-tasting and a tour of the modern and historic wineries in the area. Mendoza wine tours are wide-ranging and can be tailored to your individual interests!
Less than an hour from the center of Mendoza you will find the towns of Lujan de Cuyo and Maipu. The many bodegas (wineries) here are most famous for their production of the delicious local malbec, a dark-red wine with rich tannin and subtle plum flavors, although cabernet sauvignon, chenin, merlot, chardonnay, and syrah are also produced here as well. Mendoza wine tours are the perfect way to learn about these wines and the production process of each of them.
Traveling south of Mendoza you will discover the beautiful Uco Valley Region. Here they also produce excellent malbec, as well as semillon (a sweet white), and torrontés (a very floral white, much like a muscadet).
