The Province of Mendoza stands out for its sunshine, wines and beautiful landscapes. And for some time now, Mendoza is also about a combination of the best hotel choices and distinguished wineries that make amazing gourmet dishes, prepared by chefs that come from different parts of the country.
In a residence built at the end of the 19th century, and surrounded by fourteen hectares of vineyards and olive trees you find Club Tapiz, a place declared of historic, architectural and touristic heritage by the Province of Mendoza.
Right next to the hotel stands an ancient winery that produced wines until the beginning of the current century. Right there, among huge oak barrels, there is a space that can hold 200 people with its own tasting room and a cellar with sparkling wines. A true manifestation of local art, at Pour Le Galerie, a wonderful mural by artist Sergio Roggerone is displayed. At the back of the mansion, stands the olive manufacture geared with the latest technology and opened all year round for everyone to visit and to taste different varietals that have earned recognition.
Soledad Nardelli, chef de L’Avenir appointed by the International Academy of Gastronomy in Paris, and who has a notable background, selected among the top 50 in Latin America, is the head of the Restaurant Club Tapiz that remains open all year round. The menu boasts exquisite dishes prepared with local produce and others from the vegetable garden. The chef offers a season menu, simple and fresh, but also sophisticated and tasty. She uses the produce obtained from the winery´s estate and from the Club´s vegetable garden. Whether you go for the set menu or a steps menu, your choice will be paired with their own wines and wines from the best Argentine wineries.
The seven exclusive bedrooms at Club Tapiz, are joined by four extra ones located a few meters away at Casa Zolo. It is an ancient historic estate and residence that was owned by the Governor of Mendoza. For a full unwinding experience, Club Tapiz has a Spa with massage room where you can indulge in different therapies, sauna, Scottish shower, hot-tub and relaxation room with a view of the mountain.
