If there’s something we love at The Bubble, it’s superlative rankings where Argentina takes the No. 1 spot. We just can’t get enough! Deal with it. Which is why it tickled us pink last week to read that Mendoza’s Rosell Boher Lodge – no, not this winery that was named “World’s Best” earlier this year – received the distinction of Best Winery Restaurant in the World during the Great Wine Capitals: Best of Wine Tourism 2020 awards ceremony in Bordeaux, France.
The winery had previously won other awards in different categories, but this accolade is the icing on the cake. Years and years of hard work, dedication, and a continued push to improve have resulted in Mendoza’s arriving comfortably to the forefront of global wine tourism. From the region’s high-quality wines, to bodegas designed by award-winning architects, to world-class gastronomy and more, it’s easily one of the top destinations both in Argentina and around the world.
The Rosell Boher Lodge is located 45 km outside of Mendoza, one of the Great Wine Capitals of the world since 2005. Its estate includes a luxe guest house with three bedrooms, as well as several private villas with their own terrace and jacuzzi, fire pits, and stunning views of the Andes.
Lucas Olcese is the head chef at Rosell Boher Lodge; he and his team are dedicated to producing nearly everything in-house, focusing on a local and seasonal approach that highlights the area’s bounty as well as its producers. Much of what is used in the kitchen comes directly from the restaurant’s own organic garden on the premises. The restaurant offers both a lunch and dinner tasting menu, with either three or six courses, but if you’re feeling extra fancy you can dive into the five-course tasting experience paired exclusively with Casa Boher sparkling wines.
