Your packing list for Mendoza should contain the following: hiking boots, swim suit, sunscreen, fishing rod, winter coat, dinner attire, bottle opener, empty stomach, open mind. And that’s just for your carry-on.
Mendoza’s year-round sunshine makes it a four-season destination, but most people visit from October through April when the wine season is in full swing and wineries open their doors for tours and tastings. The grape harvest kicks off in February, and the first week of March is devoted to the National Harvest Festival (Vendimia), the city’s biggest event with parades, parties, and a fireworks finale. Prefer ski slopes to vineyards? Mendoza’s ski season runs July through September.
Walking among the attractions is easy in Mendoza’s compact center, while taxis are an affordable option for short hops. You’ll need transport to explore the surrounding wine region, and the most scenic way to explore is by renting a bike and cycling through the vineyards. Alternatively, tour buses and group tours will whisk you on a wine-tasting tour of the Maipu Valley or Luján de Cuyo regions, eliminating the need for a designated driver.
Vineyards and bodegas (as wineries are called here) aren’t the only fruits of the city’s harvest—Mendoza is also the epicenter of Argentina’s lesser-known olive oil industry. Head to Familia Zuccardi in the Maipu Valley, where you can tour the olive groves, sample the unique Arauco olives, and pick up a bottle or two to take home. Olive oil tastings are also on offer at the family-run Olivicola Maguay, along with a range of olive oil cosmetics.
