Exclusive Resorts recently announced a collection of 2020 Once-in-a-Lifetime Journeys. Among the 11 experiences spanning 30 countries, an Argentinian tour takes travelers to Mendoza to experience the country’s wine harvest firsthand.
Travelers stay at The Vines Resort & Spa, a luxury property at the foot of the Andes that sits on 1,500 acres and includes a vineyard and tasting rooms. Guests are invited to harvest the grapes and make their own custom wine, while enjoying views of the Andes from all sides. While there, they get an in-depth class on winemaking (with plenty of tasting, of course!), but also explore the other well-known aspects of Argentinian culture, from horseback riding to grilling Argentinian steaks. Other activities range from yoga classes to fly fishing excursions, and spacious villas with private decks are perfect for late-night stargazing.
The experience is only open to Exclusive Resorts members.
“Exclusive Resorts members are active, curious and motivated to explore the world,” said Gina Bach, vice president, Exclusive Resorts Club Experience Collection. “Our Once-in-a-Lifetime Journeys are diverse, with options for families, couples and individuals alike. When crafting the 2020 collection, we heeded member feedback to explore lesser-known parts of the world and areas more difficult to travel in.”

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
