One would be remiss to not visit the Uco Valley, which lies roughly 40 miles south of downtown Mendoza in the foothills of the Andes. The terroir of this region yields many of Mendoza’s famous wines. International investors and prominent winemakers are flocking to the area and building state-of-the-art wineries with world-class restaurants and boutique hotels. It’s a heavenly way to enjoy a bottle of malbec, mouthwatering beef, and unparalleled views of the Andes landscape.
