The Club Tapiz is located in the Fincas Patagónicas wine estate and was built in 1890 and is surrounded by 10 hectares of malbec and Pinot vineyards. The house was restored preserving its renaissance style villa structure and maintaining emblematic elements, such as the patio and pinewood floors, the connection with the surroundings and superb views of the Andean Range. A few meters away from the house there is an antique winery where the “pulpería” (traditional bar) invites people to taste exclusive wines.
The 7 guest rooms are clean and comfortable and integrate the traditional elements with a functional and classical decoration. The rooms are connected through a gallery that besides being the main circulation of the house, functions like living room and are surrounded by tranquil gardens. It has been recently restored preserving its renaissance-style and fitting in well with its surroundings and of course the Andes.
The Club also has one of the best restaurants in Mendoza, “Terruño” where the famous chef Max Casa prepares regional and international dishes to pair great wine with great food in a unique atmosphere.
Argentina is known for high quality beef, which is served at almost every meal. The quintessential meal is asado: beef cooked slowly over a parrilla, or grill, and served with a spicy condiment, chimichurri. .
