>> Mendoza’s Uco Valley with Ketek Events & Tourism

Pioneering winemakers initially focused on Malbecs here in the foothills of the Andes, developing delicious results over just a few decades’ time. That success has opened the way for new varietals combined into gorgeous blends—this Mendoza wine region is all about European tradition with an Argentinean soul.

Maybe that experimentalism has given this valley its relaxed, open vibe. Or maybe it’s the fact that lovers of the great outdoors long ago set the tone for travelers here: this is a place where rustic is beautiful.

If the region’s spirit of adventure moves you, maybe you’d like to help with harvest or make your own blend. Wineries here offer lots of hands-on options.

The Uco Valley isn’t all about ruggedness though. After all, it’s only 70 minutes from the city of Mendoza. Those who lean towards luxury will find their fair share of beautiful boutique lodgings and top tables to choose from.

How best to weave it all together? That depends on your style. Tell us about yours and we’d be happy to customize the perfect combination of adventure and luxury, rusticity and elegance for your next South American food and wine tour.
