Mendoza may be known as the Eighth Great Wine Capital of the World but it gets under people’s skin because it’s quiet. Peaceful. The perfect place to chill out. That’s the only thing you really have to do at Casa Antucura. Secluded off an unassuming road in the village of Vista Flores in the far-flung Uco Valley, Casa Antucura is like arriving to visit affluent friends at their country estate surrounded by countless acres of vineyards used to make their elegant wines.
With only 8 rooms, four Master Suites and four Junior Suites, each one is charmingly unique with sunlight streaming into the rooms, large picture-glass windows, large bathrooms, and cush beds.
Quickly, the place feels like home and there are plenty of places to hang out: Take a siesta on their breezy terrace with views of the Andes or read a book by the pool–simply select one from the 8,000 works in their library lining the second floor. Walk among the acres of vines, play a game of pool, or better yet, sip their house wines as the sun plunges behind the Andes. After sunset, the house cook with magical hands will treat you to tasty regional cooking paired with the brilliant wines. A perfect stopping off point to appreciate the simple pleasures of life and explore the southern reaches of Mendoza’s wine country.
