Where to stay in Mendoza – A guide to the Argentinian wine capital

Mendoza is one of the main cities of Argentina.

It is the capital of the homonymous province, located on a plain east of the Andes mountain range.

Mendoza is one of the most visited cities in Argentina, largely due to its proximity to the mountains and natural parks of the Andes, but above all because of its reputation as the national wine capital.

Mendoza is considered the “International Capital of Argentinean Wine” and it is one of the main wine-producing areas in the world.

Its architecture is influenced by its great influx of Spanish, Italian, Jewish, Arab and German migrants.

Mendoza also has a very varied cultural offer and vibrant nightlife, driven largely by its large university population.

Among its most important cultural attractions are the Municipal Museum of Modern Art, the Contemporary Art Space, the Museum of Natural and Anthropological Sciences or the city’s cemetery.

However, most international tourists who visit Mendoza do so attracted by its impressive wine heritage, so the most popular activities for visitors revolve around wine. Thus, wine-tastings and tours to wineries and vineyards are unmissable experiences in Mendoza.

Many of the vineyards near the city of Mendoza also offer accommodation services, so if you want to experience the world of wine in first person, we recommend the following bodegas:

Cavas Wine Lodge

Casa de Uco Wineyard & Spa
