Argentina is a wine country. And the best local wine is made from Malbec grapes. The wine capital of Argentina is the city of Mendoza. Of the more than 200,000 hectares of Argentinean vineyards, Mendoza has more than 140,000. Hotels overlooking the vineyards can be found throughout the province.
This province is located in the west of the country, a two-hour flight from the Argentine capital of Buenos Aires. The city of Mendoza is rightfully considered one of Argentina’s most beautiful destinations – the outskirts lined with small cozy houses and large beautiful estates.
