Nestled at the base of the Andes, Mendoza is a mecca for wine and adventure tourism. With over 397,000 acres of vineyards and 1,000 wineries, more than 80% of all Argentine wines originate in Mendoza, including the world’s best Malbec. In fact, Mendoza is the largest wine producing region in Latin America. Mendoza captivates travelers with its relaxed pace and idyllic serenity which has characterized the provincial capital since its founding in 1561. But, don’t get too lazy; Mendoza offers world-class biking, rafting, fishing, horseback riding, hiking, and skiing.
