The seasons are reversed down south of the equator so it's best to visit Mendoza between November and April when high temps make for beautiful days outdoors. Have fun hopping from vineyard to vineyard. When you're done, check out the rustic Cavas Wine Lodge where the Malbec isn't just for drinking. They also provide wine-infused spa treatments so you can truly unwind in one of their cozy cabins after a long day of tasting.

People, young and old, dozing off on park benches, couples sharing kisses and whispers as they took a leisurely stroll, children laughing as they chased pigeons through the plaza, young professionals at an outdoor table having a drink together at 3 o’clock in the afternoon.
