The Vines Resort & Spa Joins Leading Hotels of the World
Leading Hotels of the World's exclusive collection of exceptional properties is comprised of highly unique, independent hotels & resorts with distinct personalities that celebrate the culture of their destination. Now accepting reservations for January 2014, The Vines Resort & Spa earned its coveted place amongst the world's most prestigious properties after undergoing a rigorous inspection, in which it received a 90+ percent rating. The Vines is part of an elite selection of properties in Argentina, and it is the only resort in the Mendoza region to be part of this collection.

“We're honored to be a part of this distinguished collection,” said Michael Evans, CEO & Co-Founder of The Vines Resort & Spa and Vines of Mendoza. “As we look forward to the debut of our resort, this prestigious affiliation is a perfect reflection of The Vines character and the superior offering we strive to provide our guests.”

With 180-degree views of the Andes Mountains, The Vines Resort & Spa is situated in the Uco Valley, Argentina's premier wine region. Surrounded by The Vines of Mendoza's 1,500 acres of pristine vineyards, the resort offers laid-back luxury coupled with world-class service and authentic Argentine culture. The Vines creates unique experiences and uncommon adventures for guests from around the world, and every guest's customized stay is carefully curated by a “Gaucho,” who acts as a personal tour guide, concierge, and more. Guests will have the chance to experience a one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn the art of winemaking alongside the resort's expert team and famed consulting winemaker Santiago Achaval.

The resort's signature restaurant, Siete Fuegos, which translates to “seven fires,” will have internationally acclaimed Argentine chef Francis Mallmann at the helm, serving up inspired regional cuisine, and showcasing Argentina's famous beef and Mallmann's honed collection of open-flame cooking techniques. Additionally, The Vines Resort & Spa will feature a full-service, subterranean Spa, offering customized, multi-sensory experiences (the Spa is partnering exclusively with Argentinean perfume lab FUEGUIA 1833 to create custom fragrances to personalize guest experiences and treatments); an elevated fitness center overlooking the vineyards; and a 100+ square meter infinity pool with private cabanas. A variety of outdoor adventures and experiential activities will also be offered, from yoga and horseback riding, to hiking, biking, cooking lessons and wine education.

Blending the indoors with the natural environment of the outdoors, the resort's authentic sense of place is reflected throughout every aspect of the property. Designed by renowned Argentine architects Bormida & Yanzon, the resort will feature 22 one and two-bedroom Villas with three distinct floor plans, ranging from 1,000 to 2,700 square feet. Villas are inspired by the natural palette of the Uco Valley, bathed in natural light and comfortably appointed with wood, stone and luxurious textures. Guests will enjoy ample indoor and outdoor living spaces with beautiful furnishings, modern kitchens, spa-inspired bathrooms, private patios, and expansive views of the Andes and surrounding vineyards. Outdoor living spaces include private rooftop terraces and large decks with gas fireplaces, outdoor soaking tubs and showers, and plunge pools that double as a hot tub for year-round relaxation.

“The Leading Hotels of the World represents a collection of exclusive, innovative properties that offer the highest level of service and unmatched experiences in the most sought-after locales around the world,” said Pablo Gimenez Riili, President & Co-Founder of The Vines Resort & Spa and Vines of Mendoza. “The Vines is a natural fit for the organization with its authentic sense of place and passion for sharing the warmth and magic of Argentina with guests through unforgettable experiences.”

As a Leading Hotels of the World property, The Vines Resort & Spa will now be a part of an extraordinary group of properties, comprised of more than 430 hotels and resorts in 80 countries that make up the largest luxury hotel collection in the world.
