Mendoza province is located in the country's northwest and serves as a gateway to the high Andes and the Chilean border. Argentina's wines recently have attained worldwide popularity and none more so than those from the Mendoza region. Most of the vineyards - roughly 70% of Argentina's total - and the wine industry as a whole are located here, and wine tours are now the most important source of tourism for the region. Mendoza is also a major destination for sports enthusiasts: many outdoor sports can be enjoyed in beautiful surroundings.

And if your interest is in the great outdoors, the area has an abundance of parks, lakes and rivers, great skiing, and the continent's highest mountain, affording endless opportunities for a vacation far from the urban hustle and bustle. You can even see the gaucho, or Argentine cowboy, in action here, riding the herd from the giant cattle ranches in the southern expanses of the province.

Traditional fare and, of course, the region's famous wines are sure to add pleasure to your trip.
