Club Tapiz in Mendoza, Argentina
The alluring country of Argentina, known for its sultry tango and stunning architecture, stands as an epicenter of Latin American-chic. It is also home to some of the most attractive vineyards in the world, which is why many wine connoisseurs heading to the southern hemisphere find themselves drawn to the Mendoza region, particularly Club Tapiz. A breath-taking historical 1890 estate surrounded by seemingly endless vineyards, Club Tapiz is the place to be if you are searching for the perfect grape and a luxurious experience. Fashioned in the Renaissance style with many original appointments still intact, including vintage pinewood floors, the exclusive hotel makes visitors feel as if they are weekend guests at a spectacular residence. Originally built as the Governors' House, the main building, Casa Zolo, has become an architectural and historical treasure. With just seven elegant and understated rooms, you may feel like you have awoken in a South American dream in which you run the whole show.
Only a few yards from the residence you will find an award-winning vintage winery that produces crisp and full-bodied wines, using the majestic Andean Mountain Range as a spectacular backdrop. This seductive sanctuary also has one of the area's best restaurants, Terruno, where regional dishes blend with international specialties. You will enjoy them with thoughtfully paired artisan wines, of course. Signature dishes, such as asado, best showcase the country's succulent beef and spicy condiments. Groves of olive trees surround the estate and produce a remarkable variety of oils, which then find their way into many of the estate's signature dishes. You may also take a dip in the sparkling swimming pool. The staff to guest ratio is impressive, and guests truly feel as if they are the only ones that matter. Requests, no matter how big or small, never go unattended. If you are looking for some adrenaline release, the area features a variety of activities such as whitewater rafting, trekking and bicycling to get your heart rate up a bit. Regardless of your wishes, Club Tapiz will certainly dazzle all gourmands and oenophiles, as well as those intrigued by all of the impressive wine and natural beauty that Argentina has to offer.

Reviews for Club Tapiz
A really good hotel. Very nice restaurant and friendly helpful staff. Wine tasting every evening at 8. It is very quiet and far out of town (you will need a taxi to get to Mendoza). It is a great place to relax, and so small that you will get to know any other guests. The rooms needed a bit of maintenance - they are not up to the same standard as the rest of the place but it didn't worry us. I would love to go back.

I booked the restaurant to celebrate my birthday with friends and we had an amazing time. The food is delicious, wines are very good and the service is impeccable. I had the best birthday celebration I could ever imagine. A place worth visiting. We will come back for more. Thank you!
The hotel is a great place to stay if you're looking for a quiet, vineyard location. The staff is superb, especially the manager who also conducts a wine tasting every night. It was a great opportunity to hear the history of the Mendoza region and the quality of each wine produced. He and the morning manager, gave us excellent recommendations on wineries to visit and restaurants in the area to try. "La Azul." Yes. We were able to walk to one winery only 2 kilometers from the hotel. The restaurant was excellent and the grounds were immaculate. The rooms in the main hotel appeared to be excellent. One down note: Because the main hotel was full, we were housed in "Casa Zolo", a historic home on the premises with 4 rooms and it's own swimming pool. The overall experience would have been better if the house had been cleaner and in better repair.

Monica and Gabriella could not have been more helpful and their helpful ness more than made up for our slight disappointment with the quality of the accommodation and clear lack of recent investment in some public areas . The food and wine were first class with the most helpful waitress ( whose name we have sadly forgotten ) . The pre booked wine tour on our final day was less successful , although it is free to guests , we had to pay for a taxi . Not in itself a problem but the advertised horse drawn carriage tour and herd of llamas was nowhere to be seen so be careful when booking the tour .
I went to Club Tapiz with my son and some friends. It is without a doubt an impressive place. To begin with it is beautiful both inside and outside. The menu is a little funky at first, they have a plastic overlay which shows all of their property in Argentina. But once I turned the page it was a normal menu. I order the 4 plate dinner and each was fantastic. I wonĀ“t say itĀ“s inexpensive, butĀ“s its a good value for the very high quality food. IĀ“d certainly go back.
