Vibe: Design amongst the vines.
Area: Set amid the vineyards of the Valle de Uco, at the foot of the Andes, a two-hour drive from Mendoza.
The DNA: 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. 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.
Suite-Me-Up: 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. The concrete-and-steel Bungalows look like villas from the future, with Corbusier-esque clean-cut modernism and rooftop Jacuzzis
