Cavas Wine Lodge
Sophisticated and indulgent vineyard hotel offering fine vintages and a superb gastronomic experience on the flanks of the Andes.
This beautiful lodge and small vineyard is situated 30km from Mendoza on the flanks of the Andes, and is the perfect place to enjoy fine vintages and a superb gastronomic experience.
The property is listed in the prestigious Relais & Chateaux portfolio.
The main house remains faithful to Spanish colonial traditions. Sunlight floods into the cavernous sitting room and lobby with grand piano, while the cellar is stacked with dozens of Argentina's most celebrated labels.
Each of the 14 individual, adobe-walled apartments opens onto its own Andes-facing patio with a plunge pool and romantic outdoor shower offering views to the snow-capped peaks of the Cordón de Plata. Sitting rooms are equipped with flat-screen TV and CD/DVD player, and the large stone-clad bathrooms have twin basins and a stand-alone bath with separate shower. Décor is in keeping with the lodge’s spacious and simple architectural style: charcoal marbled floors, cool cream walls and subtle lighting predominate.
Horse-riding and trips to other wineries can be organised, and there's a small spa offering wine therapy treatments. There is an excellent restaurant which makes imaginative use of locally produced produce, herbs and spices.

It blew us away
"Alvear Palace Hotel & Cavas Wine Lodge The Alvear was, as always, marvellous and the Cavas blew us away with its standard of service and beauty."HW, London
Our favourite hotel - quirky and brilliant food and drink. The wine tasting session was great and we learned a lot, plus we drank a lot too! Meals were gorgeous and the service really good at breakfast and at dinner. The riding hack through the vineyards was a real highlight and we enjoyed every minute here.KB, Leeds
Everything was a highlight
“Every activity, sight, place was a highlight. It would be unfair to the others to be specific (however, Cavas Wine Lodge has a formula for relaxation and luxury that is outstanding!!)."VB, Virginia Water

“This is a superb hotel. It should be strongly recommended to anyone travelling near Mendoza. The best hotel we have ever stayed in!”NP, London
Flexible and friendly
“It is definitely worth advising your clients to do the Cavas Wine Lodge package because it saves quite a lot of money. Additionally the hotel was very accommodating with our late departure and let us book excursions on that day at no extra cost.”CE, Bromley
