THE ARGENTINIAN HARVEST FESTIVAL, ONE OF THE BIGGEST WORLDWIDE WINE CELEBRATIONS

There’s no doubting the wine credentials of Bodega Casa Vigil. Owned by one of Argentina’s most prized winemakers, Alejandro Vigil, this is a wine production of top draw. However Bodega Casa Vigil is about more than just making fantastic wines from local grapes. It is also about respecting the environment those grapes come from. The green credentials and community focus of this family winery and restaurant is what deservedly led to a Great Wine Capitals Award for Best Sustainable Wine Tourism Practices in 2018.

The latest edition of the Best Of Wine Tourism Awards highlights some of Mendoza’s most exciting wine and tourism attractions. Make sure to add these places to your bucket list for a visit in 2019.

Mendoza's leading Ladies

When Susana Balbo graduated as a winemaker in 1981, she was the first female winemaker in Argentina. Although men still outweigh women in Mendoza’s cellars, there are plenty of inspiring women in Argentine wine today.

At the historic Bodega Baquero in Maipú, the founders’ granddaughters are finding new uses for the harvest of both grapes and olives. They’ve created a line of beauty products available in their 1886 cellar. And a one-day wine and perfume workshop that gets to the essence of discerning and describing all the rich aromas of wines.

· What isALMAlbec?

ALMAlbecis anenogastronomic festival which celebrates the Malbec World Day (April 17th). It last for three weeks. One of the most important goals is to contribute to the positioning of Mendoza as the main enogastronomic destination in Argentina.

Entre Copas or ‘between glasses’ is where most of the fun in wine happens. Between a couple glasses of wine one evening with a friend; over a romantic glass or two of sparkling wine on a date; or over a cheeky glass of wine at lunch with a colleague. It is between the glasses where conversation happens and personal connections form, and that’s exactly the ethos behind the Entre Copas event at the Sheraton’s Mirador restaurant in Mendoza, Argentina.
