Mount Aconcagua is the highest peak in South America, and it is one of the most fascinating attractions this province has to offer. Fantastic vineyards spread over the entire mediterranean territory, and an exquisite Malbec is the final outcome of a meticulous care of the grape and its land. The history of this province is also very emotive, as it is the place from where General San Martín began his heroic deed of going across the Andean Mountain Range to fight for South America’s freedom.

The city of Mendoza is cuddled up by the Andean Mountain Range and the Mendoza and Tunuyán Rivers. Every water course in this region has been channeled in order to supply irrigation systems and guarantee domestic use. The ground in Mendoza is quite arid, but fields and vineyards are fertile and productive, due to the complex and extensive irrigation system which manages to wet the soil constantly. That is the reason why the wines are so smooth and silky.
