Set amid the vineyards of the Valle de Uco, Casa de Uco Vineyards and Wine Resort is a stylish, state-of-the-art, sustainably built, imposing concrete and glass structure. The eco-friendly industrial architecture puts a bold spin on the rural hideaway.
Guest rooms feature an equally cutting-edge design and come with a 42” flatscreen TV, a free bottle of Malbec, a seasonal platter of chocolate, nuts and alfajores (spiced honey and almond biscuits), a Nespresso coffee machine, a minibar, Egyptian cotton bathrobes and slippers.
In the games room guests can play pool and computer games, and flip through the large coffee-table book collection. Laptops and iPads can be borrowed for free. Restaurant Bistreaux serves international and regional food with produce grown on the estate or neighbouring farms. The bar offers a wide spectrum of wines, from chartreuse sauvignon to carmine pinot noir.
The minimalist spa offers vinotherapy and hydrotherapy treatments. There’s an aromatic cedar sauna and wet sauna, steam room and relaxation area. There’s a fitness centre too and an open-air jacuzzi and solarium. The unheated outdoor swimming pool is located next to the man-made lake. Bikes and helmets are available free-of-charge. The hotel offers horse riding and tennis courts.
