Mendoza is a gorgeous province in the central west of Argentina. The landscape spoils you with its beautiful sights, from the Andes Mountains to its lush greenery. This bit of nature even makes its way into the province’s towns and cities with tree-lined streets and the mountain tops peeking out in the background.

Mendoza is Argentina’s biggest wine region and produces about 80% of the continent’s wine. It has many award-winning wines from top farms in the area. And the best way to experience the excellent quality of wines produced here is through wine tours in Mendoza.

So, if you’re ready to explore what the country of Argentina has to offer, take a look at our long list of Argentina wine tours in Mendoza.

Highlights:

  • Taste award-winning wines on beautiful farms overlooking its breath taking vineyards and the Andes Mountains.
  • See the beauty of multiple wine regions in the Mendoza province.


Know before you book:

  • It can be a bit confusing, but Mendoza shares its name with both a province and a city in Argentina. So, read tour descriptions carefully to find out where exactly you’ll be traveling to.
  • Mendoza’s wine region has over 1,000 wineries. While you’re there, you cannot forget to taste the region’s most popular type of wine — Malbec.
  • Some wineries may be closed on selected days (especially weekends), so it’s best to stay flexible on your vineyard farm options.

mendoza wine tasting vineyards

Mendoza in Argentina is one of the best places in South America to visit for foodies and wine lovers. The province is famous for many things — from the Andes to olive oil and fine wine.

However, its vino is what attracts most of its visitors. More specifically, its Malbec wine which is the most sought-after wine in Mendoza.

This black grape was first brought to Argentina from France in the 19th century. And over a few years of struggle, it eventually rose to prominence and popularity in the following centuries. Today, Argentina stands as the top producer of Malbec.

But, besides the deep red Malbec, you can also sample a few other award-winning wines in the area. These include a selection of red and white wines like Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Torrontes, and sparkling wines.

Best Time to Go on Mendoza Argentina Wine Tours

The best time to go on Mendoza, Argentina wine tours is between March and May. Although harvest time starts in January, March to May offers a more pleasant weather experience. As you’ll probably be walking around the vineyards and enjoying al fresco dining during your tours, it’s essential to have warm weather that’s not too hot.

Mendoza has a semi-arid climate. During these months, it transitions into Autumn. Expect temperatures averaging highs of about 77°F (25°C) for March to May, while the lower temperatures will be about 57°F (14°C).

    The tour was good, the wineries were very interesting and the olive factory also. Good tour for the price. The only thing was that I was put on a tour with all Spanish par me. So the guide spoke in length to them, translating only a small but for me and what he did translate, I could barely understand him. Which I didn't think was far to add me into an all Spanish tour and miss out on information
