Areas in Mendoza
When to go
Mendoza’s winter falls from June to August, when vineyard tours are quiet and skiers hit the foothills. Spring (September to November) brings swathes of green and balmy days, which heat up considerably from December to February. To catch a glimpse of the vines turning golden, book your stay in March, April or May.

Tales from our travels
PlanesGovernor Francisco Gabrielli International Airport is the region’s main international hub. Aerolineas Argentinas (www.aerolineas.com.ar) run frequent two-hour flights from Buenos Aires and Santiago in Chile.
AutomobilesExploring by car is a little less romantic than by bike or horseback, but it is rather more convenient. There’s an Avis car-hire booth at the airport, and roads are in a fairly respectable state.
