The province of Mendoza is the world’s fifth largest wine producer, and 80% of its vineyards thrive in the hot sun and sandy soil from the suburbs of Mendoza City south through the Uco Valley to San Rafael. The Andes rise to the west, providing an abundant supply of water from melting glaciers and underground aquifers, while protecting orchards and vineyards from the humid storms of the Pacific.

Below are some great Bed and Bodegas where you can Sleep in a Vineyard, or Dine at a Winery or take a Great Drive in the Andes from Mendoza to Aconcagua. Enjoy!
