Mountain, Vineyards & Blue skies at the Uco Valley

An intimate and relaxing gourmet & wine experience awaits in the Uco Valley.


Finca La Azul represents the story of a family business venture well taken care of. Francisco Hinojosa arrived to the Uco Valley in Mendoza almost 100 years ago, to find cheap, arid and stony unoccupied grounds. The Hinojosa family believes that he was the visionary man that started the winemaking culture in this area, given that today is one of the most coveted zones in Mendoza for the growth of special quality grapes destined to fine wine production. The thermal amplitude of the Uco Valley makes a perfect terroir for these grapevines.

Nowadays, Francisco´s heirs run the business and it was his daughter Shirley who decided to open the House of Guests almost three years ago. Finca La Azul´s main house was originally her home for more than 20 years. After taking care of the wine family business, she thought that she wanted to have interesting people to talk to once she grew old and to share her time, cooking and life anecdotes.

For this matter, the 50 mt2 main house was remodeled and expanded to reach 1000 mt2 and host six rooms. Keeping in mind sustainable details, it was decided to protect the house both from cold and heat by building thick stone and sand walls (materials from the very own finca), installing double glass windows and convection heating with wood stoves.

The ranch also works with sustainable agriculture, controlling the use of water and using eco-friendly products to grow peaches, plums and grapes for refined and sparkling wines.

In the very words of Tomás, one of Shirley´s sons, the same soil that in 1991 was an empty open field, today is a long grown land inhabited by plants, families and technological elements and tools (such as an avant-garde irrigation system) for an intensive care of the crops, a handy aid for the finca staff´s daily work.

As for the House of Guests, Shirley´s idea is for the visitors to feel pampered and at home. To share and cook for them and show how the Argentine people life is.

Within an intimate environment between vineyards and fruit trees, right next to the Hinojosa family home, any of the six rooms provide breathtaking views of the Andes and coziness. All rooms are equipped with a private bathroom with bath tub and views, hi-tech TV, Netflix and the best wines.

Being a multicultural family, the gastronomic proposal is a mixture of aromas and flavours. Spanish, Italian and Arabian influences originate intense and traditional creole dishes prepared with seasonal fresh ingredients grown in their very own garden. Of course, always perfectly paired with the wines of this land.

Depending on the season, Finca La Azul offers different activities such as harvesting or cooking. Wine tastings at the wine cellar are always present and a vast collection of classical literature books is available for guests to read and relax at the library. Enjoy cocktails at sunset watching the mountains, a romantic dinner at the vines under the starry sky or a summer lunch at the quincho.

At this homey and friendly space, Shirley and her family will be waiting for you to talk about wine, taste and drink it, show you around this wonderful scenery and enjoy with you its tranquility, gladly offering you their home.

Northern countryside relax at Amalinas Hotel

Relax, high comfort and trendy design surrounded by the beautiful yunga landscape awaits only 15 minutes away from Salta’s downtown.

Settled in Castellanos, nearby Villa San Lorenzo, Amalinas Hotel combines a relaxed countryside location with the urban comfort, ideal for self drive travellers visiting Salta.


Amalinas Hotel-36

This new hotel opened last May and greeted us with incredible mountain views from any standing point, thanks to the large windows thoughtfully placed and the outside gallery and garden. We immediately appreciated a relaxed and enlightened environment, powered by the exuberant vegetation that surrounds us.

We have been told that Amalinas’ semi-urban conceptual aesthetic was originated by the hotel’s location, given it is encircled by wild nature but only a few minutes away from the city’s cultural and historical center. The idea was to “contemplate the yunga from a designer chair”. To represent this merged concept, the hotel was constructed using wood, stone, aluminum and glass. These materials are appreciated in the ten rooms available, distributed along the two story building, all of them equipped with designer furniture.

Ideal to contemplate the panoramic view, all the rooms on the first floor have a balcony. From our suite on this floor, we saw a peculiar detail that charmed us: the gallery’s green roof in bloom with typical plants from the area, a view that blends with the yunga’s natural background. This can also be seen looking up from the hotel’s garden, where you can relish and settle back in the climatized pool or outdoor jacuzzi.

Another detail which is typical from northern houses, are the color limestones applied in the bathrooms, which were specially made for the hotel. This gives a homey and warmer touch to the room’s environment.

Buffet breakfast was served at Amalinas’ Resto Bar, where we sat at one of the tables in the outside gallery to enjoy the view. The restaurant is open for the four meals and it includes distinguished dishes prepared by recognised regional chefs, a variety of wines and cocktail drinks and also patisserie and coffee for the afternoon.
