Today we drove over the Andes Mountains to the city of Mendoza, Argentina. They are well known for their Malbec wines. We were told it would take about 5 or 6 hours driving, plus maybe 2 or 3 hours at the border crossing.
It was a gorgeous drive today. We had blue skies and beautiful white puffy clouds all the way. Our maximum altitude turned out to be only 10,500 feet. I guess the last tunnel ...
... We got to pass the time swimming, sunbathing, cycling through vineyards and olive groves and exploring the abandoned railway track. We also got to explore the surrounding area with its little kiosk shops and had probably our biggest food ordering fail yet. In an unsurprising twist, bike repair shops are unable to sell you a potato.
We were joined on the second to last night by a Chilean student working on the vineyards and on the last night by two really ...
... I fell in love with Mendoza, very different to any other Argentinian city in that the roads are wide and the buildings small, mostly down to the fact that it has been leveled three times by earthquakes. Sadly. the poor climate continued - we encountered a year´s worth of rainfall in 2 days, and they say global warming is a myth! Luckily there were still plenty of things to do in the city, and my hostel´s free wine hour ...

There aren't many pictures for here as we didn't bring a camera with us a lot of the time, the olive pics are really blurry as Fae had water in her phone from the night before, Still working though!
... my observations. I quietly watch like a cat waiting for its prey and I enjoy it. I enjoy sharing this on paper and I enjoy reading other tango blogs and books, movies. It is all there. Yet, each of us expresses it in various ways. And that is something we can all learn from. Have our own way.
There is a pure happiness involved. It is my shot of the “I feel good” feeling. When I have a blissful tanda like yesterday I had one of my very favourite ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Cavas Wine Lodge Agrelo
My husband and I stayed at Cavas Wine Lodge for three nights during our 14-day trip throughout Argentina. We felt our time at Cavas was like a second honeymoon!
We stayed 5 days 4 nights at Cavas. What a wonderful experience. Our first night was on Christmas Eve. We had a wonderful dinner at the lodge with the owners, who were nothing but friendly and gracious, along with others at the lodge. The private "villas" were extraordinary. With its private roof top terrace with fireplace and small dip pool we felt very relaxed.
I have stayed in many hotels around the world and I believe the Cavas Wine Lodge is one of a kind. This hotel is an exclusive oasis in the middle of the vinyards. The rooms are spacious, with rustic elegant furnishing where every detail is taken into consideration. Each room has a private swimming pool and a rooftop terrace highlighted with a chimney with breathtaking views to the Andes.
If you are looking for somewhere special or different for your stay in Mendoza, you can't beat cavas wine lodge. Definitely 5 star full of personal attention and romantic touches.They pamper you from begining to end. We booked the 2 nights all inclusive package, with transfers, all meals and all activities included (wine tasting and visiting to nearby bodegas, rafting, spa treatments...)It's not cheap but the best there is in mendoza!
What a unique spot. You feel far away but the truth is that you are are nearby the best wineries of Mendoza. Our stay in Cavas was really magical. We loved everything over there, the architecture, the decor, the grand piano, the staff, the food, the views, the amazing rooms, the spa treatments, what else can we say. We couldn't believe our eyes. One of the afternoons before sunset we had a violinist playing at the cave of the lodge and there was champagne for everyone to celebrate that romatic moment when the sun was hiding behind the Andes. What else could we ask for? Taking into consideration that for the same ambience, rooms and service here in Europe we pay at least 3 times more!!!!! One thing for everyone to keep in mind, we took all the different tours to the wineries and never stopped, they are all great but we would have loved to stay more at the lodge. We never imagined this place was sooooo great!!!!
The rooms are more like a private villa than a hotel room. Very tastefully decorated and great adult format...shower on your private deck, fireplace on the roof top sitting area, claw foot tub etc. The food was very good. Although the wine list was extensive we were rather disappointed by the fact that many of them were unavailable.
We enjoyed a 3 night stay at Cavas just last week during our honeymoon. Each individual room is very nice, highlighted by the fireplace in the bedroom and great rooftop views of the Andes. Food in their restaurant was very good but the menu is limited. Breakfast was included and was either eggs with toast or a beautiful fruit salad. Their wine list was great, offering many local Malbecs to choose from.
My husband and I had the most wonderful 1 night stay at Cavas Wine Lodge. Without a doubt it was the highlight of our trip around Mendoza. It is hard to find words to convey how much we enjoyed this place. The setting among the vines and the stellar views of the Andes peaks is breathtaking, the architecture, concept and design of CWL is daring, innovative, and it works perfectly with the landscape. We were welcomed upon arrival with a glass of wine from their own vineyard, had an incredible lunch at an outdoor table. The very innovative large rooms with a north African adobe feel are set among the vines, the are very large, beautifully designed and furnished. Using natural materials such as stone both on the outside and inside, polished cement floors make it clean and cool. The enormous bed, large windows and glass doors, separate lounge area with satellite TV, and the large bathroom make it a place you never want to leave. I booked a vinoterapia pack in their gorgeous spa consisting of a bonarda scrub, malbec bath and torrontes moisturizing and wonderful massage. The food is the best we had in Mendoza, the menu uses local fresh produce and the wine list is a careful mix of established and boutique vineyards. The moment I most cherish is when we retired to have our dessert and coffees to our room roof terrace, where we lit the fire and lay for hours gazing at the stars. It was the most perfect and romantic end to our short holiday. My only regret is that I only stayed at Cavas only one night. I shall hopefully put that right very soon.
Cava´s wine lodge is located in a fantastic place in Mendoza, right in the middle of the vinyards. The staff are exceptionally friendly, but a little bit on south american time. So relax, and enjoy the great views and ambience of this place.
A fantastic, romantic place
We spent two wonderful nights at Cavas Wine Lodge. The lodge opened in October last year, but is very professional run, the surroundings and the lodge itself are gorgeous. The friendly and welcoming atmosphere made us really fall in love with this place. The SPA is also recomendable and the food and the wines are very good! Unfortunately we lost our camera just after returning from Cavas, so we do not have any pictures available.
