The province is part of the prestigious global network of the Great Wine Capitals, which is why it is recognized as one of the main wine-producing centers of the world along with regions such as Bordeaux, Rioja, Napa Valley, Casablanca and Verona, among others.

Framed by the beauty of the vineyards, Mendoza wineries welcome visitors with tastings, local fare, bicycle tours, cooking lessons, horseback riding and even the possibility of participating in the thrilling process of pruning and harvesting the vines.
