Mendoza on National Geographic’s 2020 Best Trips List: “Mendoza province is a spectacularly scenic place to tour vineyards and satisfy the palate. Copious sunshine, bone-dry climate, and a high altitude (nearing 4,000 feet at some vineyards) nourish Mendoza’s award-winning Malbec and other varietals…yet it’s the locals’ warmth and their passion for winemaking that set Mendoza apart from other global wine capitals”
