Mendoza Wine Route

Stretching across the foot of the Andes Mountains among a picturesque landscape is the heart of Argentina's wine country - Mendoza.

Mendoza is the wine country of Argentina

The Mendoza Wine Route is made up of three wine regions — Luján de CuyoUco Valley and Maipu — and has more than 350,000 acres of planted vineyards. On top of that, there are also more than 1,500 wineries throughout these areas, making it difficult to decide where to begin your wine journey.

Since Mendoza wine country is quite spread out, it's best to plan your itinerary by region. Luján de Cuyo is known for its production of Malbec, but also produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Torrontes. Uco Valley is the newest of the three wine regions and, besides making wine, offers gorgeous scenery for plenty of picture-perfect moments. Maipu contains the smallest number of wineries (about 20), but also offers olive oil tastings and recreational fun, such as biking.
