Wine Country Chef Francis Mallemann runs the destination-in-its-own-right restaurant, Siete Fuegos, at Vines Resort & Spa (doubles from $850). The property is set on 1,500 acres of private vineyards outside Mendoza, offering plates such as grilled Argentinean steaks and hearty empanadas. Order a bottle of Malbec, Cabernet Francs, or Syrah (which you can blend yourself with on-site expert winemakers)—and enjoy every sip with views of the Andean peaks and the sound of chirping crickets. Sleep it off in one of the hotel’s 22 villas, set with rough-hewn stown fireplaces, outdoor soaking tubs, and private patios. Adventurous guests should take to the mountains for horseback riding and hiking, and for skiing in the winter.
