Tripadvisor’s The Best of the Best

In a recent publication aimed at culinary tourism enthusiasts, Tripadvisor presented the 25 destinations that “will keep you busy (and full).”

The Best of the Best title from the Travellers’ Choice Awards celebrates the highest level of excellence in travel. It is awarded to those who receive a large volume of exceptional reviews and opinions from their community over the past year. It is worth noting that, among 8 million destinations and establishments listed, less than 1% achieve this milestone.

What makes Mendoza one of the Best Gastronomic Destinations in the World

Mendoza is the Ibero-American Capital of Gastronomy and Wine, boasts seven Michelin Stars, and was recently chosen as the best responsible wine tourism destination. While Malbec has put Mendoza on the global map, it offers much more: incredible landscapes framed by the Andes Mountains, excellent gastronomy and wine tourism available year-round, and a peaceful and picturesque city to enjoy under the sun.

Tripadvisor highlights that “Mendoza, best known for its wines, is a bustling city east of Cerro Aconcagua, the highest peak in the Western Hemisphere. Although it attracts many adventurous travelers drawn by climbing, skiing, hiking, and rafting opportunities within a short distance from the city center, the area’s more than 1,000 vineyards attract even greater numbers of oenophiles.”

Additionally, the platform recommends Mendoza as ideal for nature and wildlife tours, wine tastings, shopping addicts, and hiking tours.

It is noteworthy that the site is a true window to the world, as operates in 40 countries and 20 languages. It features approximately one billion reviews and opinions on over 8 million establishments.

Borravino Wine Tours designs your trip to one of the Best Gastronomic Destinations

At Borravino, we strive to provide our visitors with the best culinary experience in one of the world’s best gastronomic destinations. We carefully select restaurants that offer amazing cuisine, fantastic wine, and beautiful landscapes. After a busy morning visiting bodegas, we believe lunchtime is the perfect moment to relax, enjoy, and discover the incredible flavors of local gastronomy.

Our wine tours to Luján de Cuyo, Maipú, and Valle de Uco include lunch at carefully chosen wineries that offer something extra to our visitors. We also tailor the experience to each client’s desires: if they want to visit a particular winery that is not included, we’re more than happy to accommodate their request and plan the tour just as the client envisioned it.

While Argentina is renowned for its beef, there are options for all dietary restrictions and requirements. From exclusively vegetarian restaurants in wineries to true “parrilladas” where everything is cooked over a wood fire, giving the dishes the distinctive flavor of Argentine asado. Our clients can always choose from different menu options, which usually include a starter, a main course, and dessert. All of these delicious dishes are accompanied by exquisite wines.

Also, local ingredients are also a classic in the menus of restaurants in wineries, with many of these ingredients coming directly from their own or nearby “huertas” (orchards). This not only guarantees freshness—since the menu often incorporates only seasonal fruits and vegetables—but also ensures the use of organic ingredientes in the preparations. This pairing of food and wine from the same land has surely been key in positioning Mendoza as one of the best gastronomic destinations in the world.
