The region around Greater Mendoza is the largest wine producing area in Latin America. The bodegas (or wineries) here are perfect for a relaxing afternoon with flowing Malbec wine and fine food in the glowing sun. Seen here through the wine glass is Cerro Aconcagua, the highest mountain in the Andes, in the Americas and in the Southern hemisphere.

Location: Mendoza, Argentina
