Cavas Wine Lodge was the first of its kind in the Mendoza region: a luxury hotel set among the region’s famed vineyards and wineries. In 2003, Cecilia Diaz Chuit and her husband Martin Rigal selected the hotel’s location from dozens of options.
Their efforts created a tranquil, 55-acre retreat in the heart of Lujan de Cuyo—a bullseye location surrounded by Mendoza’s most noteworthy winemakers–names such as Catena Zapata, Vina Cobos, Achaval Ferrer, Caelum, and Mendel.
Cavas Wine Lodge is a member of the Relais & Chateaux family of boutique hotels.
Food is a priority; the lunch menu is updated seasonally and the dinner menu is changed each night. Meals feature organic locally-sourced meats and produce.
