Mendoza, one of the ten great wine capitals of the world, has evolved into a world-class tourism destination. A desert oasis resting in the Argentinean foothills of the Andes mountain range, Mendoza has earned the moniker “the land of sunshine and good wine.” The region is bursting with over a thousand picturesque wineries growing Mendoza’s famous malbec grape. For adventure-seekers eager to explore the Andes, the province is replete with adrenaline-pumping outdoor pursuits.
GAUCHOS The Argentinian Pampas - rolling terrains of grasses, flowers and herbs - are the home of the Gauchos. The nomadic and colourful horsemen and cowboys have wandered the prairies since as early as the 1700s, when the flatlands were overpopulated by wild Cimarron cattle, originally brought to South America by the Spanish conquistador Pedro de Mendoza in 1538.
