Sophia Grimms Just Back From Argentina The Vines
Name of Advisor
Accommodations and/or DMC/On Site
The Vines Resort (LHW)
How to get to
Fly into Mendoza, drive 2hrs (or arrange transfer)
Recommended For (families, couples, corporate, celebrations, etc)
Couples, celebrations, and families,
More family-friendly than neighboring Casa de Uco, but Mendoza (as a wine destination) is not generally considered a family destination overall.
Not-to-be-Missed Experience or Activity
Make sure you book your wine experiences in advance, as sommeliers are only available onsite on certain days and many excursions require 48hrs advance notice!
The Siete Fuegos dinner experience crafted by chefs and offered 2x a week and is a destination experience for many travelers in the region.
Favorite culinary aspect of the hotel or region
Wake up early to catch a stunning sunrise over the Andes while enjoying one of the most lavish and delicious breakfasts in the region, sitting at a pondside table at Siete Fuegos restaurant.
We didn't get to try complimentary 3-course meal at the restaurant, but breakfast was delicious!
Favorite Wellness aspect of the hotel or region
Currently no spa at the property but I recommend visiting nearby Casa de Uco for treatments in their stunning spa.
A delicious bottle of locally-sourced Malbec upon arrival and the best alfajores I've ever tasted for turn down!
Kudos to: *refers to a guide, chef, member of hotel team, etc. that went out of their way
Johanna and whole team that went out of their way to squeeze in a site inspection for me despite being so busy with wedding preparations and even helped reunite me with a forgotten clothing item after my departure!
The design of the property is stunning, with 22 villas scattered resort-style on walking paths behind the property's vineyards and garden. Those closest to the front of the property have the best views of sunrise and sunset, come complete with soaking tubs on the front veranda, and some even have two stories!
