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.
