Exclusive $14K Seaplane Proposal & Celebratory Dinner in the Vineyard in Argentina’s Wine Country

SB Winemaker’s House & Spa Suites, the bespoke estate and luxury boutique hotel from renowned Argentine winemaker Susana Balbo and her daughter, Ana Lovaglio Balbo, is now offering a four-day luxury proposal in the heart of Argentina’s wine country. This tailor-made experience inclusive of a one-of-a-kind private air safari via seaplane, commissioned artwork, custom wine blend, and celebratory dinner amidst the serene vineyards of Mendoza is designed for couples seeking an unforgettable engagement.

Day One - Welcome and Wellness in Wine Country

Upon arrival at SB Winemaker’s House & Spa Suites, the couple is greeted with a 15-minute massage insuite on heated loungers in their private garden terrace.  At the only luxury wine hotel in Latin America with fully integrated in-room spa features and services, the respite doesn’t end there. The Wellness Butler is on hand to guide guests through the suite’s steam room, sensations shower, and dry sauna as well as a range of wellness rituals like a wine-themed body exfoliation with grape seeds. The suites, which also feature outdoor fire pits in the private garden, offer intimacy and connection with nature, providing time for the couple to unplug and enjoy each other’s company.

Day Two - The Seaplane Proposal and Full Takeover of Susana Balbo Winery

The centerpiece of the trip – the seaplane proposal – begins with a two-hour flight over the breathtaking scenery. This exclusive flight, onboard the only aircraft of its kind in Latin America, offers aerial views of the Andes, salt flats and Uco Valley before a water landing in an oasis in the middle of the Argentine desert. Here, the couple will enjoy an intimate moment together toasted with sparkling wine before heading to San Rafael to enjoy a tasting from the Susana Balbo Wines portfolio. Then it's onto an exclusive lunch prepared by a private chef. Back in Mendoza, a private takeover of Susana Balbo Winery allows the couple to enjoy their first dinner together as fiancés. The candlelit four-course meal from the winery’s Michelin-recommended restaurant is expertly paired with premium wines from the country’s first female winemaker herself.

Day Three - Artist Studio Visits and Wine-Blending Workshop

The day is dedicated to cultural immersion in Mendoza with a visit to either the atelier of renowned Mendoza artist Sergio Roggerone or Fernando Jereb. Here, the couple can individually commission an artwork personalized to their love or choose an emblem that reflects love in the destination, such as the symbolic red Ceibo flower native to the region. Following the visit into town, a hands-on wine blending workshop back at SB Winemaker’s House offers an intimate experience, allowing the couple to create and take home a custom wine bottle engraved with their special date. Back at SB Winemaker’s House, the boutique estate showcases artwork from paintings and sculptures to handmade tapestries from 15 prominent Argentine and Brazilian artists, including Roggerone, Jereb, and the renowned photographer Sebastiao Salgado.

Day Four - A Fond Farewell

The experience concludes with a relaxed check-out experience and credit for a return stay to relive the memory a year later. A 20% discount for a future three-night visit or a $25 USD credit per person for use in wellness or dining for a future stay of one or two nights is included.

Rates for the Wine Country Proposal start at $14,000 USD for three nights in a double occupancy spa suite. The price is inclusive of all activities outlined above plus roundtrip airport transfers and daily breakfast at SB Winemaker’s House & Spa Suites. This experience is available from December to March.
