Mendoza is located in the foothills on the eastern side of the Andes mountain range, about 260 km west of San Luis. It is a stopping point for travellers on their way to the tallest mountain in the hemisphere, Aconcagua. The region around the city is the largest area to cultivate wine in South America and is home to Argentina's National Wine Museum.
