In my opinion you will never get enough of the gently rolling hills of McLaren Vale, but if you are looking to offer your eyes a bit more excitement the winner for the Best of International Wine Tourism has got you covered! The d’Arenberg Cube will have you lapping up the big picture, while needing time to soak up all the amazing details, too.
Actually, the d’Arenberg Cube is a 2018 winner in two categories: International Best Wine Tourism, and – of course – Architecture and Landscape. Although the Cube is a new and unexpected addition for the region since last year, it is not an unexpected winner in these categories. A building made entirely out of glass, shaped like a Rubik’s cube, which surprisingly enough seems to really fit in the Mourvèdre vineyard surrounding it – that is a feat we all need to take a closer look at.
Paraje Altamira Valle de Uco Mendoza
A unique experience. Sophisticated music, local gastronomy in one of the most beautiful locations in Mendoza.
UcoJazzFestival brings together the best jazz in the world with great wine in a stunning location, at the foothills of the Andes. Two nights under the stars enjoying top international and Argentine
musicians, great food and the award-winning wines in a spectacular location.
Only 40 minutes separate Viña del Mar from Casablanca, halfway between Santiago and the coast, so for some it is just a stop on the way. However, Casablanca Valley can be transformed into an unforgettable destination to live a wine experience in family.
