Minutes away from the capital of Mendoza, lies Godoy Cruz, one of the iconic cities in the province. Besides local institutions, it boasts good wine and outings for all tastes.
Godoy Cruz is part of the urban agglomeration of Greater Mendoza. Throughout its streets, it treasures the typical stamp of Mendoza reflected on its grape harvest, irrigation ditches and traditions from the area of Cuyo. Even though it occupies a small surface, this is one of the most densely populated cities in the Province and no denizen from Mendoza has missed a walk along some of its streets at least once in a lifetime.
Argentinian wine has become famous worldwide thanks to this city. Its rich wine growing history is breathed along its streets everyday when dozens of wineries follow the daily ritual of making and aging delicious Malbec wines that will be served at the table of many homes both in Argentina and abroad.
In the last few years, new family gastronomic undertakings have joined the wine industry. As well, olive oil products and by-products have made olives gain as much significance as grapes in this zone.
