The sun-soaked city of Mendoza produces some of Argentina’s most celebrated wines. There you’ll find Cavas Wine Lodge, a Relais & Châteaux property that’s tailor-made for adventurous enophiles who also crave luxury. The property is neighbored by dozens of wineries, including Achával-Ferrer, Piattelli and Bodega Norton. Yet the lodge is a destination in and of itself, boasting the region’s only Wine Spectator Restaurant Award winner. The Best of Award of Excellence–winning restaurant serves a regional menu that chefs Silvana Gallo and Ivan Azar change daily to incorporate the freshest ingredients, with many sourced from the on-site garden. Wine director Martin Krawczyk Pardo oversees the 470-label wine list that naturally excels in Argentina. The selections span the region and cover everything from benchmarks to lesser-known picks, with particularly inexpensive pricing despite the refined setting.
