Casa de Uco Vineyards and Resort – Mendoza, Argentina

Argentina’s Uco Valley is well known for cultivating award-winning Malbec. But, in such an arid climate, water comes at a premium. Which is why every drop counts at the impressive Casa de Uco Vineyard and Resort. By employing drip irrigation techniques for both the 790-acre vineyard and 200 poplar trees planted to offset carbon emissions, water can be conserved with up to 90 percent efficiency. In addition, the hotel records and manages all energy consumption, and uses solar collectors to provide clean, renewable energy throughout the property. Each of Casa de Uco’s 16 modernist rooms and suites leverage geothermal energy in the flooring and walls for temperature regulation. Their farm-to-table menu is driven by the seasonal ingredients grown directly in the organic vegetable garden, or obtained from local organic farms. And from the hotel’s green rooftop, covered with local plant species, guests can enjoy astonishing views of snowcapped Andes Mountains, or gaze into the celestial sky at night.
