Lujan de Cuyo

Bordering both banks of the Mendoza River, Luján de Cuyo is known as the home of Malbec because it was here that the variety first started showing great potential. With more than 50 bodegas, ranging from the traditional to the ultramodern, this is one of the largest wine regions in Mendoza—and one of the province’s best pastimes is hopping between them (you can expect to visit three or four a day), enjoying tours and tasting great vino along the way. Luján also has a smattering of luxury resorts and boutique hotels should you wish to extend your stay.
