Mendoza is the principal region, and wine tourism is booming. Mendoza is an important city in it's own right with things to do. Add the Wine region, plus the Andes and the ski resorts, and the favorable exchange rate = lots of tourists.
Salta (Cafayate), is another wine region in Argentina very popular with tourists. San Juan is 2nd largest wine producing province after Mendoza though not as known, yet.

Quoting Arcano (Reply 8): Derico, be honest, Mendoza is nice, we love it, but in terms of wine, entretainment and city, Chile's central valley is much more interesting.
Why do you get so defensive? There's no need... unless there's you have an inferiority complex on your side! haha! - Let me put this in big capital letters so that you don't get all worked up - IT IS A FREAKING JOKE
As for the sites, if you want to go for Wines, Mendoza is the way to go. Best wines in the world, or one of the best . Mendoza, San Rafael are two cities you might wanna take a look at when you come down visit for the Wine cellars. If you want to have a ski lesson, on ly 200km up from Mendoza, you lave "Valle de Las Leñas", excellent ski resort.
Great wines in Toowoomba in Australia, great red wines there. I got myself some when I came back in 2001, it was amazing.

May I suggest you visit Temecula (CA) wine country... I say this as a former resident of the very nice town, and also so that if enough people start visiting Temecula, it could get some airline service!
But, in all seriousness, Temecula's wine country is a must-stop if you're considering California...
