Mendoza holidays

Introduction

Mendoza is a lively city in the little visited western region of Argentina, known for its world-class wineries. The Mendoza Province, of which the city if the capital, is at the centre of the Argentina's booming wine trade, producing two-thirds of the country's wine. And, as Argentine wine has become more popular around the world, Mendoza has blossomed into something of a cosmopolitan gem.

The pretty plazas and boulevards in the centre of Mendoza host a distinctly European-style café culture and a sophisticated restaurant scene. Out of town, vineyards spread themselves across the rolling landscape that leads up into the Andes. Tasting the region's famous Malbec wine at its source is definitely well worth including in your Argentina travel plans.

Mendoza is also an important stopover for hikers and climbers heading into the Andes. To the west of the city is the 6,959-metre Aconcagua, the highest mountain in the southern hemisphere - and indeed anywhere on earth outside of the Himalayas - and a thrilling challenge for experienced climbers.
