The charms of the Province of Mendoza can be experienced and enjoyed year round: its natural beauties and the vastness of its mountains, its famed wineries and its excellent wines, and its well-known Grape Harvest Festival, held in March every year.

As a result of the development and expansion of the wine-growing sector internationally, the most important wineries open their gates to visitors and offer high-hierarchy wine tours. The idea is to show them the daily routine necessary to make the best products, including the renowned Malbec.

No matter what cardinal point is chosen, Mendoza has everything. To the North, the high country circuit is an invitation to find mythical Mount Aconcagua and all the paths and nooks that lead to the highest summit in America.

To the South, the thriving and always new Cities of San Rafael and Malargüe summon the entire family through recreational activities and adventure sports in natural scenes such as rivers and reservoirs, lately populated by cabins and lodgings for all tastes.

In the City of Mendoza and its surroundings, regions such as Luján de Cuyo, Maipú and Chacras de Coria make up a tourist mixture located a few minutes away from the urban shell. A little farther away, the areas of Potrerillos and Valle de Uco also offer several tour alternatives. Along with San Martín's Circuit, they show tourists that, in addition to good wine, this province of Argentina boasts a rich history and a fascinating culture that is evident also in its present.
