About Mendoza, Argentina
Located in the eastern foothills of the Andes Mountains, Mendoza was settled in 1561 by Pedro del Castillo. Two of the region’s main industries are wine making and olive oil production. Mendoza has been designated as one of the eight great wine capitals of the world. With its proximity to the mountains, Mendoza is a frequent destination for visitors wishing to engage in wine tasting, mountaineering, hiking, rafting and horseback riding activities. Mendoza became an official sister city of Nashville in March 2009.
