Many consider the bourdeaux region of France to be the epicenter of the wine world, but any malbec lover will tell you that the place to visit is Mendoza, Argentina. That’s right, we’re heading to South American wine country for this month’s destination wedding blog! Pour a glass of rich, jammy malbec and buckle in as we explore some wonderful venues for your bridal fantasy.
A small secluded boutique hotel is an ideal setting for a destination wedding with a cadre of friends and family—and there are few places as picturesque as Cavas. At the foot of the Andes mountains, Cavas Wine Lodge is a boutique hotel just 25 minutes from Mendoza Airport. As you soak in Mendoza’s 320 annual days of sun, breathtaking vistas, and 900 wineries, you’ll be celebrating your nuptials with up to 50 wedding guests. Cavas was built in the Spanish colonial style, and it offers such ammenities as outdoor fireplaces, onsite restaurant, and a spa where you can relax in anticipation of your big day.
For up to 60 guests, enjoy all the views of Mendoza and more. From The Vines you can explore the countryside by horseback, go flyfishing, take a yoga class, and learn about how they add their special touch to wine making. And of course, say ‘Sí acepto’ from the view of their 1,500 acre vineyard.
Go big and get married at this 5 star hotel with a restored 19th century Spanish colonial facade! The Park Hyatt is located in the heart of Mendoza but you’ll still be 90 minutes away from the major ski resorts, so don’t miss the mountains while you’re there! Best of all, you can host your reception in a 300 square meter ballroom that will overwhelm your guests with luxury.
