Most upscale travelers visiting Mendoza, Argentina stay at the excellent Park Hyatt in the center or the fantastic Cavas Wine Lodge plopped in the middle of a vineyard. We’ve just added a review of a third option: Club Tapiz.

Club Tapiz, part of which is a historic bodega building surrounded by grape vines, is a bit simpler and more like a B&B than Cavas, but it has a few notable things going for it. I have eaten at their restaurant myself and can vouch that it’s one of the best in the region. There’s also a villa for rent as part of the complex. Here’s what our reviewer had to say about it:

Run as part of the Tapiz estate in its own private grounds, it was once was the ambassador’s private residence. This exquisitely appointed private house has four bedrooms, each of which has a private bathroom, cable TV, Wi-Fi, and maid service. The games room has a large living and dining area, plus a lounge has its own private pool. There is a breakfast bar and even a private area for tango.

Naturally there is a great wine cellar where you can do tastings and the staff can arrange activities at the Tapiz winery nearby. (The label is marketed as Zolo in North America.) Anyone up for some pruning and grape picking?
