Our Story

It started with a bold vision and a crazy dream.

In 2005, Pablo Gimenez Riili and Michael Evans recognized the world-class potential of Mendoza’s Uco Valley and invested in 650 acres of land. Their purpose: to make the dream of owning a vineyard and producing your very own premium quality wine a reality. The Vines of Mendoza has since sold Private Vineyards to more than 120 owners from around the globe, expanded the property to 1,500 acres and established the highest quality winemaking enterprise in the region. Each step of the way has been a labor of love and we enjoy nothing more than to share the fruits of our labor with you. We welcome visitors to our Mendoza City and Uco Valley Tasting Rooms where we showcase the best of Argentine boutique wines, including our own Recuerdo brand. 

A place not easily found, The Vines of Mendoza is even harder to leave. Our guests feel its magnetic pull. To share the best of Mendoza with even more travelers from around the world, we’ve created The Vines Resort & Spa. Offering laid-back luxury at the base of the majestic Andes Mountains, it’s the ultimate retreat for wine lovers and outdoor adventurers. We believe in treating guests like old friends and go out of our way to make sure you experience the very best of our region. 

The perfect blend of rustic elegance and modern comfort, the resort features spacious private Villas, a luxurious Spa, world-class service, and breathtaking views of the Andes at every turn. Legendary Argentine chef Francis Mallmann serves up inspired regional fare and traditional asado feasts at our signature restaurant, Siete Fuegos. In our vineyards, you can harvest grapes or make your own custom wine, working side-by-side with world-renowned consultant winemaker Santiago Achával. As our guest, you may find yourself exploring the rugged countryside by horseback, saluting 300 days of sunshine in a yoga class, taking a fly fishing excursion on the Rio Mendoza, stargazing from your private deck, or even blending your own Malbec. Along the way, we’ll share the warmth and magic of Argentina with you like only a local can.
