July 23, 2014 Hotel Openings No Comments Email Email

Ensconced within a private 2.8 hectare vineyard, behind the gates of Tupungato Winelands, sits the dramatic Auberge du Vin Hotel. This spectacular location at the foot of the Andes in breathtaking Uco Valley is just outside the city of Mendoza.

As the world’s first wine country club, Tupungato Winelands blends private vineyards, polo, golf, and spa treatments to create an unforgettable experience for all Auberge du Vin guests. The hotel will be open to the public on September 1, 2014.

Designed for natural living, the 29-room Auberge du Vin hotel is in harmony with its surroundings while providing complete luxury. Guest rooms are designed in a stylish manner, with comfort and convenience in mind. All suites include flat-screen televisions, complimentary Wi-Fi, spacious bathrooms, in-room safes, individual climate control, and fully equipped kitchenettes. Prior to arrival, guests can have kitchenettes fully provisioned with their favorite foods and beverages, saving them time to do the things they love. The luxury boutique property also features an indoor/outdoor gI_91681_HotelBeds3swimming pool, sauna, and kids club.

When not playing golf, practicing polo, drinking wine, or taking advantage of the hotel amenities, guests can enjoy world-class kayaking, white-water rafting, horseback riding, mountain biking, hiking, zip lining, cave exploring, and many other outdoor activities.

Prior to, during and after a day full of recreation and adventure, Auberge du Vin guests are treated to culinary delights at its five-star restaurant EPIC. Here, Chef Martin Erkekdjian blends international cuisine with regional inspiration in an unforgettable mountain setting. His menu presents unique creations that are notable for top quality, carefully selected local ingredients. Chef Erkekdjian is an Argentinean who has been tutored by world-renown chefs such as Alex Atala, Pierre Gagnaire, Thomas Keller, Marcus Samuelson, and Fernando Trocca.

P Hotels’ other properties include Palermo Tower and Palermo Place in Buenos Aires’ trendiest district of Palermo, as well as the new Arelauquen Lodge in Bariloche, which opened in April of this year. Although each P Hotel is noted for its superb location and intimate ambiance, all the properties are most often praised for the friendly, highly personalized service provided by the knowledgeable and dedicated staff members.

Prior to becoming a hotel developer and operator, Grupo EMR CEO Edward Rubio traveled the world as a financial services executive. “I always admired Argentina for its diverse landscape, friendly people, and natural beauty,” he said. “I knew from the beginning that I wanted to offer guests the opportunity to see ‘the Big 3’ during their Argentine vacation (Buenos Aires, Bariloche, Mendoza), as they each offer such a unique experience but are still easily accessible from one another. I think I have found the perfect combination of opportunity.”

For those with a large appetite for the delectable Argentine lifestyle, Rubio has introduced a worry-free, no-hassle way to own real estate in all three locations. He has teamed up with DCP International, which pioneered the luxury residence club concept, to create The Residence Club of Argentina ( The Club’s members have an equity interest in suites within each of the new P Hotels and unlimited access, subject only to use by other members.

One of the most attractive aspects of the unique residence club offering is that the P Hotel staff takes care of all the ownership responsibilities and makes each Argentine vacation seamless, whether the visit incorporates one or all three of the Club locations. Residence Club of Argentina owners are also members of Elite Alliance (, an exclusive vacation exchange offering travel options at dozens of other luxury residence clubs in world-class destinations across the globe.

“The only thing our Club members have to worry about is where to go next,” Rubio said.
