Careful: Argentina wine can spoil you for life.
It’s not just the wines – though Argentinian wines are very, very good – it’s the landscape.
Mendoza is a desert, but you’d probably never guess it.
Thanks to Andean snow melt, it remains lush and green year round, while fountains and irrigation canals run through the city center. Sycamore trees line the main square, which provide shade from the hot sun.
But what’s more striking is the view. The Andes mountain range looms over endless miles of vineyards, while rolling hills turn amber and crimson during autumn months.
It’s gorgeous! But back to the wines…
