1. The Most Romantic Wine Hotels in South America: Argentina

Argentina Wine Regions

Argentina boasts two wine destinations: Mendoza and Salta. Mendoza is the star of Argentine wines due to its incredible production diversity. Up to 80% of Argentinian wine production takes place here. With wineries spread out through the three central wine regions – Lujan de Cuyo, Valle de Uco, and Maipu – wide open spaces with nothing but vines, mountain majesty and blue skies, and some of the best winery designs in the world, it is a place you genuinely don’t want to miss!

During your stay in Mendoza, you can choose to stay in the city center with its wide range of ‘foodie’ choices or stay in a vineyard, which is our suggestion, where you can truly immerse yourselves in wine culture.

Salta wine region is Nestled high in the Lerma Valley at the foothills of the Andes mountains. This wine region is renowned as home to the highest altitude vineyards in the world and is regarded as the epicenter for the country’s white wine Torrontés, the only 100% Argentinian white grape variety. . The most important wine growing areas in the Salta region of Argentina, is Cafayate and the sky-scraping vineyards of Molinos.
