Points of Interest in Mendoza
- Bodega La Rural. One of the largest wineries in Mendoza is also one of the best for visits. they offer tours in English which includes the history of the place, the Museo de Vino, the wine processes and storage containers and finally a tasting of wines only offered at the end of the tour. Bodega la Rural makes 7 to 8 million liters annually and makes a full range of inexpensive to high quality wines. Brands produced at Bodega la Rural include Felipe Rutini, Trumpeter, and San Felipe (characterized by an oddly shaped bottle).
- Familia Zuccardi
- Finca Flichman
- Bodega Chandon
- Trapiche, one of the biggest and widely distributed wines in Argentina but it does not offer tours or tastings.
Summers can be very hot and dry in the city. January is particularly hot; temperatures of 40C (104 °F) are not uncommon. However, the lack of humidity makes both the heat and cold more bearable than, say, humid Buenos Aires. The nearby mountains are cool, though, even in the summer.
Winters are moderately cold in the city from late June to late August, and very cold in the mountains. Many ski centers are located near Mendoza (see below "DO").
Learn Spanish in the city of Mendoza to appreciate the culture more.
As with many places in Argentina, there are a variety of Spanish courses and private lessons are available. There are two extablished language schools, both disorganized but fun, in Mendoza: Intercultural , has a range of afternoon activities especailly appropriate for young partiers, and is slightly more expensive; Greenfields (aka COINED, after the web bookers) is smaller and feels even less well organised, but many of the teachers work at both schools.
Another great option for individual or very small tailor-made quality group lessons with a highly trained instructor: Spanish in Mendoza, Argentina (SIMA) . This is a better option for those seriously interested in learning or improving their Spanish, although the classes are very enjoyable.
You haven't gone to Mendoza if you haven't tasted its delicious wines. Mendoza's most famous varietal is Malbec from Maipú and Luján de Cuyo. Mendoza also grows very good Cabernet Sauvignons, Merlots and Syrah. Other important wine regions are Tupungato and San Rafael.
A very nice (and cheap) way to taste Mendoza's wines is to visit wineries around Mendoza city. You can see how the wine is made and then you can taste it. There are many wineries offering tours and wine tastings. Among the best are Bodega La Rural, which has a Museum of Wine, and Finca Flichman.
