Argentina’s famed wine-growing culture reaches a zenith in Mendoza. Plan a tour tailored to your needs while staying in gorgeous hotels, lodges or resorts.

Enjoy the private Wine Tasting with a Sommelier excursion during a half-day tour that begins in a private wine cellar located in Mendoza City. Available year-round, the tour includes a wine tasting with three wines you’ll select yourself, a private tutorial offered in English, Spanish or Portuguese, a cheese platter and private transportation.

During the four-day, three-night Uco Valley Wine and Spa Tour in the Uco Valley Wine Producing Region, participants will enjoy transfers to and from the airport; modern transportation; a welcome dinner; a private, full-day wine tasting tour of three wineries; one bottle of sparkling wine per person (during the full-day tour); mineral water; gourmet lunch with wine pairing; spa treatments; and a farewell dinner. The tour includes an English-speaking guide.

The full-day Picnic in the Vineyards and Wineries of Mendoza tour takes place year-round from Monday through Friday, with a guide, private visits to two vineyards, tastings of mid-range wines, mineral water and a picnic basket filled with ingredients, including wine and individually sized sparkling wine.

Prefer an active tour? Consider the half-day guided Sunset Horseback Ride through the Vineyards in Luján de Cuyo in the Central wine-producing region. The tour includes transportation, a visit to two wineries, tastings of varietals, a full antipasto platter with wine and horseback riding. Gloves, hats, sunblock, insect repellent and a first-aid kit are also provided.

During the full-day Whitewater Rafting along the Wine Route of Mendoza, participants will raft the Mendoza River and partake in a gourmet lunch featuring regional cuisine and wine, visit a winery and experience a tasting of varietals in various tasting rooms. The tour includes transportation, guides and rafting equipment, including jacket, pants, helmets, oars and life jackets.
