Heralded as the first female winemaker in all of Argentina, Susana Balbo built her namesake family winery in the Mendoza province of Luján de Cuyo. Partake in a tour of the fermentation rooms to see how the wine is made before tasting a medley of fruity and complex pours.

Wine Not?

Wine aficionados will enjoy the diverse offerings at this aptly named spot, where the focus is on regional offerings paired with local bites. Learn more about Mendoza’s wine region with the Basic Concepts tasting, where the sommelier will share a flight of sips and skills embedded in the local culture. For those who prefer the darker shades of wine, the Not My First Time tasting focuses on only the red varieties.

A 45-year friendship between two Argentinian families laid the foundation for this regional restaurant, located in a boutique wine hotel on a vineyard. With no formal menu, the dishes are chosen according to the season and encompass vegetables from the property’s own garden, main courses of meat and handmade pastas, and elaborate desserts to satisfy any sweet tooth.

Club Tapiz

Offering farm-to-table fare, this restaurant in the Maipú city of Mendoza doles out a regionally-inspired menu full of flavor. Start with the fried onion flower with a bagna cauda (dipping sauce) created with herbs from their garden before moving on to either the pork bondiola (braised pork shoulder) wrapped in dough with Merlot or the vegetarian cannelloni pasta with goat cheese, quinoa and smoked pumpkin. Complement your culinary experience with one of Club Tapiz’s own bottles of wine.
