Wine is the most romantic drink in the world. It is a classic drink to celebrate your love as it adds the intensity to your love and passion. Apart from being the ideal celebration drink, wine is also one of the healthiest alcoholic beverages. Wine has its mark in almost all the countries of the world, and that is why every country has a distinct flavor of the wine to serve you. Making premium wine is an art, and you would not want to miss out on this out-of-the-world experience.

The Mendoza region is home to three wine-producing valleys, namely, Uco Valley, Lujan De Cuyo, and Maipu Valley. If you want to visit all these valleys, you need to have time for two days so that you can enjoy exotic wines like Frangelico and Malbec.
