With its high-altitude position in western Argentina and bountiful vineyards, such as those in the Luján de Cuyo and Uco Valley regions, Mendoza is a destination for outdoor explorers, luxury seekers and wine lovers alike. Whether driving on the open roads or horseback riding throughout this malbec-rich region, you’ll find a well-aged taste of unbound freedom, especially at one of these hotels in Mendoza – bookable with Culture Trip.

If being nestled between the Andes Mountains and 55 acres (22ha) of vineyards sounds like your cup of tea (or glass of wine), book a stay at Cavas Wine Lodge. Laze around on the chalet-like oak furnishings after taking yourself on a full gastronomic journey, from tasting the vineyard’s malbec to picking the gleaming grapes yourself. You can even try your hand at a gratifying cooking class so that you can twist your empanadas (savory hand pies) to perfection.

2. Entre Cielos Luxury Wine Hotel and Spa

Entre Cielos comprises 24 glamorous rooms with furnished terraces, each providing views of the entwined vines surrounding the property. Take a picturesque horseback ride through the vineyard, find your Zen with a morning session of yoga or enjoy a refreshing dip in the lounger-framed pool. Bringing a touch of Turkish timelessness is the hotel’s very own hammam, where you can indulge in vinotherapy treatments if you prefer your wine in the bath rather than the glass.

3. Huentala Hotel

With its ornate statues and glistening chandeliers, Huentala Hotel exudes a sense of grandeur. The rooms have a neutral, elegant palette, and there’s a pillow menu so that you can rest your wine-weary head on the precise plumpness you require. Treat yourself to an afternoon tea with chocolate truffles and sumptuous smoked sirloin sandwiches, or save your appetite for a polished three-course dinner at the Chimpay Bistró.

4. Casa Glebinias Hotel Jardín

Casa Glebinias Hotel Jardín has the feel of a welcoming country house with its ample grounds, two cottages and five suites. Wood-beamed ceilings and cozy quilts await you in the relaxing rooms. A hearty breakfast, including home-made bread and fruit fresh from the garden, is served in the luminous glass gallery. After sampling the hotel’s wine in its rustic cellar, visit the nearby town of Chacras de Coria to browse the antiques and crafts market in the central square.

5. Club Tapiz

The grandiose Club Tapiz dates back to 1890 and is set on 35 acres (14ha) of vineyards and olive groves. It’s a haven for gastronomes, so treat yourself to some wine and olive oil tastings before witnessing the champenoise (traditional) method of sparkling wine production and sipping on a fizzy chardonnay pinot noir. The organic vegetable plot and surrounding farms are where renowned chef Soledad Nardelli finds inspiration for the restaurant’s seasonal menu, featuring marinated meats and colorful salads.

6. Lares de Chacras

Lares de Chacras combines natural Andean stone and traditional desert wood to create the ultimate lodge-style retreat. Tuck into an exquisite dinner of a rib-eye steak or prawn fettuccine accompanied by a local winemaker who’ll guide your taste buds on their epicurean journey. Head out on a gentle bike tour of the nearby wineries and have a taste of Lares de Chacras’s malbec. The first harvest was in 2020, so check out its progress for yourself.

7. Rosell Boher Lodge

The elegant Rosell Boher Lodge has one sumptuous master suite and 11 villas, each with a private hot tub and a fireplace-adorned terrace. The lavish yet minimalist design of the property lets the 2,026 acres (820ha) of vines and surrounding snow-kissed Andes Mountains speak for themselves. Take in the sprawling vines on horseback before sipping some malbec, chardonnay and cabernet franc in the 25,000-bottle wine cellar.

8. Algodon Wine Estates

In the folding foothills of the Sierra Pintada Mountains lies the swish Algodon Wine Estates. The design is inspired by traditional Argentinian estancias (ranches), although this property is at the refined end of the ranch spectrum. If lifting wineglass to mouth isn’t active enough for you, take a swing at some golf or tennis at the on-site championship-level facilities framed by olive groves, verdant vineyards and lush fruit orchards.

9. Villa Mansa Wine Hotel and Spa

A short drive south of Mendoza city lies the Villa Mansa Wine Hotel and Spa. The cuvée suites, set in wooden barrel-like cabins, are a stroke of architectural genius. Whether you’re here for wine tastings or wellness, you’ll appreciate a dip in the heated swimming pool. If you’re here for some serious relaxation, indulge in the spa, offering treatments such as a body exfoliation using olives from the surrounding groves and olive oil massages to detox after an arduous day of vineyard visits.

10. Casa La Galeana

Casa La Galeana has sprawling grounds with chirping birds and a large wood-burning fireplace in the main living room so that you can really make yourself at home. It’s an ideal spot for those looking to switch off – the snug rooms looking out onto the greenery guarantee some peace and quiet. Spend a day at the nearby Cacheuta thermal baths next to the Mendoza River, where you can soak in rock pools surrounded by mountains.

Set in the Uco Valley, the Vines Resort and Spa offers unassuming luxury at the foot of the Andes. This multi-award-winning property has acres upon acres of vines, and you can even buy a plot of land here, overseen by a local agronomist, so that you can have a piece of wine country to call your own. Enjoy the results of renowned chef Francis Mallmann’s open-flame cooking technique at the Siete Fuegos restaurant, where you can savor delicious options such as a nine-hour slow-grilled rib-eye steak and fresh vegetables from the resort’s gardens.
