An exclusive posada in Finca La Pampa at the foot of the Andes, Posada Salentein is surrounded by vineyards and is a wine lover’s haven.

Ollie, Kate B and Alexandra are here to help give you the inside track.

There are 16 rooms spread out across three separate houses at this boutique hotel - eight of which are in a house called Los Racimos, with eight further rooms in the newer Los Sarmientos and Los Zarcillos.

Food is homemade and delicious, served in the dining room next to a cosy living room with a fireplace. Local produce is used throughout and Argentine specialities fill the menu - empanadas criollas (local meat pies) are cooked in the terracotta oven, and beef casserole Salentein Malbec-style in the traditional iron pan, naturally accompanied by lashings of local wine.

Located in Argentina's premium wine growing region, Posada Salentein is surrounded by the vineyards of Bodegas Salentein (part of the same family), and the posada can organise tours of the wineries and private tastings in the cellar. The area is also home to some remarkable architecture - visit the Chapel of the Gratitude and Killka, ending the tour in the winery.

There is also a swimming pool at Posada Salentein, and other activities include cooking and horse riding at San Pablo state, which is located 1700m over sea level at the foot of the Andes Mountains - a seriously impressive backdrop.

Why we love it

Having a vineyard for a sister property has its benefits - get behind the scenes and learn all about the making of the Salentein wine, all while sampling, of course.
