Mendoza is more than Argentina‘s premier wine-making region; in many senses, it is also a way of life. Ride on horseback beneath the Andes mountains and sample the best asado grilled meat alongside a glass of local Malbec. The best way to experience the magic of Mendoza is at one of its all-inclusive resorts. Check out our list below, bookable on Culture Trip.

Roughly 70 percent of Argentina’s wine comes from the Mendoza province. The city itself is made up of leafy streets and Art Deco buildings, while the surrounding countryside is dotted with high-altitude wineries. Needless to say, a trip to the area wouldn’t be complete without staying on one of the vineyards itself. These all-inclusive hotels not only offer wine tasting, but world-class cuisine, adventurous activities and luxurious spas.

1. Fuente Mayor Hotel And Resort

For a more budget-friendly stay in Mendoza’s Uco Valley, book the Fuente Mayor Hotel. Half of the hotel’s land is planted with Malbec vines. Stay in a cozy cabin, sleeping up to six people; each comes with a fireplace, deck and private barbecues. Don’t fancy cooking? The Manzano Restó dishes up meat-heavy Argentinian cuisine. Afterwards, roll a few dice at the on-site casino or sip a glass of red at the bar while watching the sunset over the Cordillera.

The Casa de Uco Resort has everything you would want from a resort in the Uco Valley of Mendoza. The building itself seems to melt into the mountainous landscape due to the brownish hues of it stone construction. Spread over 800 acres (320ha), this wine-making estate offers you the experience of staying in a premium wine resort, along with activities such as horseback riding, paragliding, whitewater rafting and even cooking courses. If prefer to just relax, they’ve got that covered in the form of the Uco Spa, offering massages, therapies and hydrotheraphy baths.

4. The Posada Salentein

The Salentein Bodega is one of the most well known in all of Mendoza, so it certainly warrants a hotel worthy of its fame. The Posada Salentein presents a unique hotel experience, connecting you deeply with nature and the essence of wine production. A stay in this small, exclusive ranch, surrounded by the bodega’s vineyards in the foothills of the Andes, is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. You can also visit the Killka Art Museum on site – a convergence of art, architecture, wine and gastronomy not found anywhere else in Mendoza or Argentina.

5. Cavas Wine Lodge

Billing itself as the “first luxury lodge at the foot of the Andes,” this 18-room property sits snugly among the vineyards in Agrelo at the base of the Andes. Book the front row room with its king-size bed, topped with Egyptian cotton linen, private plunge pool and patio heated by an outdoor fireplace. One of the real draws is the spa, which offers bespoke treatments cultivated in the region, as well as couples’ spa days for that special occasion. The lodge’s restaurant has won numerous awards of excellence and has a seasonal menu that uses the best local produce, all, of course, accompanied by the incredible wine made in Mendoza.

6. Club Tapiz

Club Tapiz is one of the more traditional resorts in Mendoza. This small boutique hotel is located in a stately home built in the 1890s. Spend time rambling around the idyllic grounds that contain a vineyard, an impressive wine cellar and an outdoor pool for taking a break from the heat. The on-site restaurant whips up Argentinian classics, using ingredients from their own organic garden. The neighboring Casa Zolo, a splendid old mansion that used to belong the Governor of Mendoza, is where you’ll stay; four rooms mean it’s a secluded spot for large groups.

7. Finca Adalgisa

This hotel and winery is a bright and breezy Mendocino paradise, located in a 100-year-old vineyard. Inside, it has the charm of a country pile with neutral colors and an abundance of fresh flowers. The rooms are cozy, with cowhide rugs on the floors and exposed stone walls. Cooking classes are on offer, along with traditionally prepared dishes in the restaurant for the real Argentine experience, alongside Malbec from their very own vines. For a more remote stay, book their self-contained Altamira Lodge in the Uco Valley, two hours’ drive away.

This luxurious resort and spa frequently makes it onto international lists of the best places to stay. Benefiting not only from a spectacular location at the base of the Andes, this incredible resort is also home to one of Argentina’s most famous restaurants, Siete Fuegos, owned by Argentina’s enfant terrible of the culinary world, Francis Mallmann. There is a heavy focus on wellness, with a variety of classes available (including yoga) – even more enjoyable given the stunning setting. This is easily one of the most majestic hotels in Argentina.
