Located in the heart of the Valle de Uco, renowned for its high-altitude wines, The Vines Resort and Spa is surrounded by the 1,500 acres of a private vineyard estate in the foothills of the Andes mountains. Twenty-one low-lying villas blend cleverly with the landscape. All feature generous living spaces and outdoor decks. The Deluxe Villas also feature an outdoor hot tub or plunge pool, some with a rooftop terrace – perfect for star gazing. All are beautifully designed with a soothing colour palette and sumptuous fabrics. Spend your days relaxing around the grounds of the estate or learn to be a winemaker. The Uco Valley is one of Mendoza’s best-kept secrets due to the exceptional fertility of its soil. The country’s most renowned winemakers have located here making it Argentina’s new hot spot for wines. Perhaps take a guided ride through the spectacular landscapes with a gaucho or fly fish in the cool, clear rivers. The excellent spa offers an array of soothing treatments and a delightful outdoor Jacuzzi.
Days start with an extravagant breakfast buffet with à la carte dishes cooked to order. Acclaimed Argentinian celebrity chef, Francis Mallmann, creates regionally inspired dishes showcasing Argentine beef and local, seasonal produce in his restaurant, Siete Fuegos. Translating as ‘seven fires,’ the restaurant takes its name from the chef’s honed collection of open-flame cooking techniques. Signature dishes include 9-hour slow-grilled rib eye, salt-baked salmon and grilled seasonal fruits, accompanied by the finest boutique wines.
