  • With 320 days of sun, Casa de Uco, a vineyard estate and boutique resort in one of the top wine capitals of the world, Mendoza, Argentina, is designed to blend seamlessly into the Andes Mountains. Casa de Uco offers guests authentic Argentinean food and wine experiences, including parcel paring tastings, moonlight horseback rides, vineyard bike rides, vinotherapy spa treatments, vineyard and/or mountainside “asados” (Argentine BBQ—cooked over open flames) with locally-sourced ingredients.

    Designed and developed by Alberto Tonconogy (father of the founder, Juan Tonconogy), the resort boasts a sleek minimalistic style with a modern rustic edge; each space is designed with neutral palates and natural materials to coexist in harmony with the land.

    Keeping the environment in mind, Casa de Uco is equipped with green rooftops, solar panels, geothermal energy in floorings and walls for heating and air-conditioning, sustainable architectural design and self-contained water and heating systems.
