Wine Lovers' Paradise
Everybody loves to discover a new wine, and with countless vinotecas, stunning nearby vineyards, and even a loaded cellar of our own, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to uncover delicious new blends during your stay in Buenos Aires.
Argentina boasts some of the finest Malbecs in the world, and while they're a big part of the viticultural heritage here, other varietals –such as Syrah, Tempranillo and Torrontes – are catching up fast.
Top bottles from boutique Mendoza vineyards are offered each night at Pony Lounge, an intimate bar off the Four Seasons lobby. And chef Juan Gaffuri’s contemporary Argentine cuisine at Elena creates the perfect canvas for Argentina's finest labels. (Non-imbibers should try the Pakmahi, a refreshing, non-alcoholic quaff made from grapes, green apple and fennel.)
Your wine journey continues at any number of the upscale vinotecas in Recoleta and beyond, with their packed terraces spilling fashionably dressed porteños onto the streets. Just one block from the Hotel is famed El Mirasol. Both its filet mignon and tenderloin skewers are excellent, but just as many come for the bottle selection, including marquis labels like Terrazas Barrel Select and Trapiche Single Vineyard.
Thanks to a thriving wine industry, portenos have also discovered the beauty benefits of spa treatments using vino. Try one at the Four Seasons Spa: our signature Porteño Tango employs grape oil and red wine to hydrate the skin while set to the rhythms of tango music. Dionysus himself couldn’t have devised a better way to unwind.
