On the eastern side of the Andes, the city of Mendoza is the capital of Argentina’s main wine-producing region and is located in the north of the province, in a landscape of foothills and high plains. It is famous for its mild-bodied Malbecs.
Flying from Santiago, Mendoza can be reached in less than an hour, while more adventurous travelers may opt to cross the Andes by land, which takes approximately seven hours.
Mendoza can be visited all year round, and is especially popular during March and April, when visitors can enjoy the wine harvest.
