The beautiful retreat of Casa de Uco is arguably the best way to explore life on a vineyard. Located in an ecological reserve surrounded by the foothills of the Andes, the stunning remoteness of this property is all part of its charm. Each of the 16 rooms offer supreme comfort and have enormous glass windows framing views to the snow-capped mountains and beyond. All of the rooms have their own private terrace, walk in shower and spa bathtub with a view. The resort also has a cosy living area with wood-fire chimney, a games rooms and the outdoor deck is ideal for al fresco dining or simply lounging beneath the sun or stars.
Dining at Casa de Uco is an absolute treat for the senses and Mendozan chef, Pablo Torres has created a menu that best reflects the flavours of the region. Most of his ingredients are fresh from the organic vegetable garden or local farmers.The Uco Valley is renowned for Argentina's best Malbec grape and in light of the estate grounds are also home to an exclusive boutique winery. Their expert sommelier, Juan Pablo Nieva, can introduce you to some of the region's best with a tasting in the underground wine cave. But it's not all about the grape, Mendoza is also famous for creating some of the world's best olive oils.
Casa de Uco's stunning location is ideal for exploring the wonders of the Mendoza. Fill your days with soft treks, horse riding and cooking classes, or adrenalin junkies may prefer paragliding, net fishing, white water rafting, and mountain biking in the Andes.
