Winding Through The Wine Region

A glass of Malbec, a tender rump steak, a measured smattering of chimichurri, and a charming view of distant, snow-capped Andean peaks. It is easy to see the allure of Argentina’s wine region. Mendoza province produces over half of the country’s wine and foreign visitors flock to soak up some sun and sample the produce. But while Mendoza and its surrounding vineyards are lovely, the wine region extends far into north-western Argentina, and a winding, mountainous road trip is perhaps the best way to not only see more of the country, but to widen one’s wine horizons.
