Described as the land of sun and good wine, Mendoza is spectacularly set in the foothills of the Andes and is Argentina’s main wine producing region. Founded in 1561, this stylish city is famous for its fine food, tree-lined avenues and delightful plazas, and is surrounded by vineyards and orchards. Take a tour of the bodegas (local wineries), where rows of vines stretch out to distant snow-capped mountains, or alternatively relax in the beautiful surroundings of one of the numerous wine estates in the region.
