Included Highlights Algodon Wine Estates, in San Rafael, Mendoza, is a working vineyard that's ecologically friendly. There are a ton of inclusions in the Gaucho weekend package-they'd amount to about $800 if booked independently. You'll have dinner for two, which will include asado, a traditional preparation of beef over an open flame, plus empanadas, dessert, and wine from the estate. Enjoy a guided wine tour and tasting, and play a round of golf on the estate's nine-hole course (or take a lesson). There's also an equestrian center for horseback riding. After all that activity, you'll need the in-room couples massage and a helping of the fresh fruit-kiwis, peaches, grapes, and apricots-from the estate in your room.

Lodging You'll stay in a Superior Suite with a fireplace at The Hotel Lodge at Algodon Wine Estates. The lodge has a swimming pool and a library.
