End your tour with lunch and a visit at the Pulenta Estate.  Here, the 135 hectare-vineyard grows at 980 metres (3,215 feet) above sea level and enjoys an extraordinary climate and huge temperature ranges, all of which create favourable conditions for viticulture.  

The vines, which were brought from France and Italy and planted by Antonio Pulenta, flourish at the feet of the mountains.  Meltwater flowing from higher elevations irrigates the Estate and its purity is reflected in the vigour, intensity and freshness of the fruit.

Return to the Posada Salentein for dinner and overnight stay.

Following breakfast at the hotel, transfer to the airport for the return flight to Buenos Aires.  Once there, return to the Sheraton Park Tower Hotel and enjoy the balance of the day at your leisure in this dynamic capital city.  Dinner this evening is on your own account.

Enjoy breakfast at the hotel this morning followed by a tour of the area.  Located at the foot of the Andes range, Mendoza is clearly recognized as the major wine region in Argentina. The area is notable for its very hot summers and plentiful sunlight. Added to this, sparse annual rainfall has encouraged the use of artificial irrigation creating perfectly tended oases of plentiful fruit.

End your tour with lunch and a visit at the Pulenta Estate.  Here, the 135 hectare-vineyard grows at 980 metres (3,215 feet) above sea level and enjoys an extraordinary climate and huge temperature ranges, all of which create favourable conditions for viticulture.  

The vines, which were brought from France and Italy and planted by Antonio Pulenta, flourish at the feet of the mountains.  Meltwater flowing from higher elevations irrigates the Estate and its purity is reflected in the vigour, intensity and freshness of the fruit.

Return to the Posada Salentein for dinner and overnight stay.

Following breakfast at the hotel, transfer to the airport for the return flight to Buenos Aires.  Once there, return to the Sheraton Park Tower Hotel and enjoy the balance of the day at your leisure in this dynamic capital city.  Tonight might be an ideal opportunity to take in a local Tango Show.  Dinner this evening is on your own account.
