The accommodation in wineries is an innovative and very attractive project. It is a proposal to look into gastronomy, which is inevitably linked to enology, complementing the guests’ stay and introducing the concept of wine and food matching to the Wine Route.
When wine tourism started developing, several wineries decided to offer accommodation amidst their vineyards. Some of them chose a hotel-looking style and others built a few exclusive bedrooms.
Some establishments even created relaxation centres as a complement where they offer vinotherapy treatments.
In Vista Flores, Tunuyan, exclusive Casa Antucura is located (the name is Mapudungun for sun stone). It only has seven rooms combining tasteful decoration and high-tech equipment amidst windowed terraces overlooking vineyards and snow-capped peaks.
Terraza de los Andes winery (Perdriel, Lujan de Cuyo) has six double rooms in the heart of their vineyards.
Club Tapiz in Lujan features seven luxurious, fully-equipped rooms in a 1890 villa that has been restored preserving the original 19th century style.
Bodega Vistalba features a two 70 m2 bedroom lodge.
At the foot of the Andes, in Tupungato stands Estancia D’Ancon- a 2,483 castle surrounded by a park of 100 year-old trees built in 1933 by the Bombal family. This winery is included in the “Estancias Argentinas” circuit and specializes in entertaining guests. Beyond the park, stand the vineyards, nut trees, cherry trees and chestnut trees that supply the raw material for the production of the wine and jam visitors enjoy. Estancia D’Ancon wines have been awarded internationally.
Some of them also feature golf courses. That is the case of Algodon Wine State, in San Rafael.
