My partner and I have just finished a five-day tasting trip in the Mendoza region of Argentina. The trip was fantastic, the backdrop of the Andes is breathtaking, and the wines and cuisine really are world class.
We traveled with this tour operator who specialise in luxury wine and gourmet tours. Well worth the cost.
Stay at Cavas wine lodge - it's a real treat.
We also ate at Vistalba's restaurant which was one of our favourite meals of all time.
The most luxurious restaurant in town, converted from an old winery. Think high ceilings, marble floors, ultra-attentive waiting staff, perfect lighting and ambience, distant music, oh and the food - it's Argentina so there needs to be no explanation. The place is run by a TV chef, but don't let that put you off. Unless you go mad don't expect to pay more £30-40 per head.
This tenedor libre (all you can eat) restaurant is a fantastic place for an orgiastic eating experience, surrounded by noisy Mendocinos having a great night out - the best in town. Choose from literally hundreds of freshly cooked dishes, a brilliant grill, and wash it all down with a good wine from the heart of Argentina's wine country. Look out for the waiter called Antonio - he is a star - and go on your birthday (they'll even give you a present).
