The province of Mendoza boasts more than just breathtaking scenery. Nestled against the mighty Aconcagua, South America’s highest peak, this region is a paradise for wine lovers. Explore vineyards bathed in sunshine and savor world-class Malbecs, all within sight of the Andes’ snowy embrace.

The best time to visit the Mendoza region of Argentina is during Argentina's summer. During this time, the weather will be sunny and warm for exploring the region's wineries and hiking Aconcagua! If you're visiting the region solely for wine, consider visiting during March to enjoy Mendoza's Harvest Festival.

Spanish is the official language of Argentina. However, even if you speak Spanish, the Argentine accent is unique and can be challenging to understand at first. There are a decent number of people who speak English in Mendoza, but learning a few common phrases in Spanish is definitely helpful and much appreciated by the locals!
