Bustling and dynamic, melancholic and passionate – Buenos Aires reflects the many contrasts and the variety that defines Argentina.
On the other hand, as an oasis for wine & adventure lovers, with impressive peaks on one side (Aconcagua and the Andes Range) and peaceful green vineyards on the other, Mendoza provides the perfect balance for those who like to combine intensity with relaxation.
Mendoza is an endless source of inspiring places. Being at a vineyard, walking through the rows with the fragrance of the grapes when they grow, and the Andes Range in the horizon, is like being in a fairy tale. It’s going to be our pleasure to help you to create your own adventure!

At the same place, the famous Argentinian Francis Mallmann decided to open Siete Fuegos, an open restau-rant with an incredible view on the mountains, in great contact with nature, where the specialty is the Argen-tinian barbecue. Siete Fuegos literally means “seven fires” in Spanish. In this case, it describes seven different techniques of open flame cooking inspired by Argentine gauchos and European immigrants – tested and refined throughout 12,000 years of history. Francis Mallmann combines history and technique with his distinct taste and elegant style.
