High on a slope overlooking the Uco Valley, this may be the closest thing to sleeping in the middle of a vineyard-with all the comfort and conveniences that the owner/architect can provide.

Don’t miss: the under-water view of the wine cellar.

After you’ve toured the nearby bodegas (Atamisque, Andeluna, Altus, Salentein), enjoy lunch under the thatch roof by the pool, or in the cozy wine-bar/restaurant. Fresh ingredients from the garden complement an imaginative array of appetizers-mini-brochettes, quesadillas-main course changes daily, dessert might be fresh srawberries on a cookie, creme brulee or lemon mousse.

There are only two rooms–

-so after a siesta and a stroll in the vineyards, you’ll find bread, cold cuts and cheeses delivered on a tray to your room–and a fire in the fireplace.
