MH Itinerary: Wine Argentina
One of the best things to do in the Southern Cone is to visit and taste some of the great wines that come out of the region. Argentina is one of the top five wine producing countries in the world. Several grape varieties grow productively in Argentina and the favorite reds included Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Pinot Noir. However, Argentina is known and labeled by its main production of the Malbec grape.
Known as the great wine- producing region of Argentina, Mendoza is not only famous for its grapes, but for its natural beauty. Visiting a winery is a great option for both seasoned wine experts and novices. Many owners decide to serve food and hold a dinner to answer all questions as a way to strengthen the relationship between the visitors and the wines. The following is a list of tourist friendly bodegas in Mendoza.
