Yes indeed, e.g like Turkey, or Tunesia. They have an old tradition of making wines. I would say at least 2000 years.

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.

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.

Actually, MDZ is so close, you come here, go to the beach, ski, watch the Lakes Region and, before returning, go to Mendoza for a weekend, nice place indeed!

I'm not a huge fan of Chilean or Australian wines; so, I would say Napa-however, suprisingly, my favourite white comes from Portugal at a reasonable price. =)

I would say the Bordeaux region, especially south of Bordeaux in the Sauternes and Barsac region on the west bank of the Garonne river. A trip on the east bank, in Loupiac, is also worth it.

Arcano,

You've gotten so defensive of late my friend! I wasn't even comparing Mendoza with any other place, including Santiago! Calma Calma no nos pipiemos!

Well, Santiago is a city 5 times the population of Mendoza, so I would hope it would have more things to do!! Many people combine visiting Chile with Mendoza.

Why do you get so defensive?  Wink There's no need... unless there's you have an inferiority complex on your side! haha! Big grin - 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  Smile. 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.

Cheers! wave

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!  Silly

But, in all seriousness, Temecula's wine country is a must-stop if you're considering California...

What happened to the rose wine ? At least in my city you don't find it easily anymore. Is it a bad wine?

I don't think so Bongo. Like all wine styles it comes in and out of fashion and perhaps it's just not popular at the moment  champagne  *shrugs*

I can't say I've noticed but then I got roaring drunk when I was 15 on Rose and haven't been able to drink it since  vomit
