The Mendoza Province is one of Argentina’s most important wine regions, accounting for nearly two-thirds of the country’s entire wine production. Located in the eastern foothills of the Andes, in the shadow of Mount Aconcagua, vineyards are planted at the some of the highest altitudes in the world with the average site located between 2,000–3,600 ft.
The Vines Resort & Spa is located in Mendoza's renowned Uco Valley winemaking region, nestled at the base of the Andes Mountains, one and a half hours from Mendoza City.
South America’s top wine destination is home to 18 grape varietals in three distinct growing regions: Maipu, Lujan de Cuyo and Valle de Uco. Here, internationally acclaimed Malbec vines thrive alongside up-and-coming native varietals like Torrontes and Bonarda.
The outer regions beckon with adventures and excursions—from fly fishing or white water rafting on Rio Mendoza, mountain biking or hiking through the rugged Andes foothills to horseback riding through the countryside with Argentine gauchos.
