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
In the description for Club Tapiz it says â€śBoutique Hotel & Restaurantâ€ť. Donâ€™t know about the hotel part, but if the service and attention to detail is anything like it is in the restaurant, I wouldnâ€™t stay here even if it was free. I went with a group of 7 for the three course lunch on a Sunday. The good: the place itself is quaint and feels like something you might find in Provence. The bad: where to start? You get around 5 options for starters, 5 for main and 5 for desert. You can have it with water or get wine for an extra. If you do, itâ€™s first a Sauvignon Blanc, then a Malbec, and finally a Sparkling Rose. You get these three no matter whether you order fish, pasta, salad, meat, or pastries. First huge mistake. The service was terribly slow, and we needed to repeat our order 4 times because she couldnâ€™t seem to write down more than one word a minute. Once the food came out (around 20 minutes after first ordering and 15 after getting the first and only glass of white wine), they didnâ€™t remember who ordered what. The Malbec we were served was easily the most imbalanced and acidic wine Iâ€™ve tried in any restaurant ever. We had to get up ourselves to pour more water because the staff was busy doing who knows what. For started I got the tuna tartare which looked and tasted like a dish I could make at home in around 5 minutes. Out of 7 of us, 4 ordered the lamb. We got 4 completely different dishes, so much I had double check and ask whether they had brought me something else. The meat comes with a side of charred sliced pumpkins and zucchini. Boring, and poorly executed.

Club Tapiz was exactly the type of hotel we were looking for in Mendoza. It is quaint, has character, but very clean, and good customer service. Beds were comfortable. We enjoyed our dinner in the restaurant and they were constantly giving us bottles of water in the room. Breakfast was also very good for a hotel in Argentina--ham and cheese, very good medialunas, cereals, other breads, and you could order eggs at no extra charge. This is very typical Argentine breakfast (with eggs being a bonus) and the quality of the food is very good. We enjoyed the wine tastings in the evening as well. We found the size of the rooms to be perfectly adequate for my husband and I and our 5 year old. We had an extra twin size bed placed in the room and there was still plenty of space. Our shower head was a bit wonky leading to relatively low water pressure but this was a tradeoff I was definitely willing to make for the character of the place. I didn't want to come to Mendoza to stay in a huge Hilton. We were a bit disappointed that the olive oil factory wasn't operating during our visit since they just finished the grape harvest and were starting to prepare for the olive harvest, but certainly this was not the hotel's fault. The staff at the hotel arranged several remises and taxis for us that worked out great. I was definitely satisfied with my decision to stay at Club Tapiz and wouldn't hesitate to return again.

If you are on a busy trip around South America this is an ideal spot to stay and recover. A small 7 bedroom boutique hotel that was once a winery. Lovingly restored. The management and staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are very comfortable. The restaurant serves excellent food including the obligatory enormous - and very tasty - steak. The young manageress in the restaurant was incredibly knowledgeable about the extensive wine list. The bracing pool is great for an early morning wake up! Highly recommended. P
What a beautiful setting and dining room. The waitstaff are outstanding as is the food and wine. I had the lamb and my wife had the steak and both were out of this world. Their dessert of a biscuit soaked in Chardonnay with fruit and almond ice cream was beyond incredible.
Just beautiful - we stayed in the separate Casa Zolo building - full of character. Excellent wine flows freely at the evening tasting and the restaurant us reasonably priced, great service and caters very well for coeliacs even providing toasted gluten free bread.
