In Mendoza, we set out for quality, not quantity. Our goal was to enjoy a winery or two, then enjoy lunches with mountainous vineyard views. At first, figuring out logistics here was overwhelming. In our research, many previous backpackers blogged about how they splurged by succumbing to a private tour. We even considered it! However, <private tours> here are ungodly expensive ranging from $160-$190 USD per person! And with two weeks in this area, and 3 wine regions to cover, we had the time to figure out how to be a bit more budget savvy.
