Top ten Reasons to visit Mendoza
When to Visit
Mendoza is a welcoming destination all year round. We believe that anytime is perfect for enjoying the food, wine, culture and scenery that Argentina has to offer.
The colorful months of autumn, April, May and June, create an enchanting atmosphere as the cooling temperatures along with the vibrant autumn red, orange and gold colors note the change of season.
The winter months are inviting with views of snow-capped Andes, warm fires accompanied by full-bodied red wines and crystal clear open skies. The outdoor adventurer can take advantage of Mendoza’s close proximity to the mountains for skiing and snowboarding day trips.
The early spring radiates with bud-break, flowers and warmth. As the days begin to get longer and temperatures rise, you will experience great people-watching in the surrounding parks, plazas, and restaurants. You can enjoy your time at the wineries in the morning, mountains in the afternoon, and stay to watch a gorgeous sunset.
The summer months of December and January are ideal for the sun seekers who long for hot temperatures. In the late summer, February and March, the grapes reach full ripeness and the locals anticipate a bountiful grape harvest. It is also an exciting time as everyone prepares for the Annual Wine Harvest Festival (Fiesta Nacional de la Vendimia).
