Fue casualidad. Pasaba por Mendoza en 2007 para escalar el Aconcagua, pero tuve que posponerlo debido al clima. Ese ‘tiempo muerto’ en Mendoza me llevó a conocer bodegas, a enamorarme de la gente de aquí, de la comida y sin duda del vino. Al año siguiente, volvimos con mi esposa y ella también se enamoró de la región.

There are only a few things that can coax most people voluntarily out of bed at 4am. For our guests vacationing at The Vines Resort & Spa, peacefully resting in their cozy Villas after enjoying an evening full of steak and wine the night before, this can be an even tougher sell. But we’re willing to bet that those who decide to dedicate one early morning to an invigorating sunrise horseback ride won’t regret it. We’ll even ensure there’s a siesta space waiting for you upon your return to the resort later that day!
