Wine Lover's Guide to Mendoza

4.5 92 Reviews | Add your review

Mendoza is the epicenter of Argentina’s world-renowned wine industry. Production here—which dates back to the Spanish conquistadors—has thrived thanks to the soil, climate, and altitude combining to create perfect winemaking conditions. Here’s what you need to know about what to drink and what to do while exploring Mendoza.

Must-Try Varietals
It’s really all about malbec in Mendoza. Even though the varietal is technically French, these robust, rich reds have put Argentina on the wine map. The most distinctive Argentinean white wine—and the only Argentinean grape—is torrontés, a white known for its floral aroma and dry finish produced in Mendoza, as well as in Salta and La Rioja.

Head to just about any restaurant or tasting room in the region, and in addition to malbec you’ll also find cabernet sauvignon, merlot, syrah, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, and riesling.

Must-Do Experiences
  • Enjoy some fresh air and sunshine as you cycle from one winery to the next on a Mendoza biking wine tour.
  • Take a day trip to Maipú from Mendoza for a day of guided wine tastings.
  • Choose your own wine adventure aboard a hop-on hop-off wine bus.
  • Explore the land of Malbec with a tasting tour of Luján de Cuyo.
  • Sample organic wines in the less-visiting boutique wineries of the Uco Valley.
