The article focuses on the decision of Argentine vineyard owners to open their doors and cellar to tourists. Wine tourism is growing in Argentina and in response, vineyards are offering tour packages that include tours of the grounds, wine tasting and the opportunity to sleep a stone's throw away from where the grapes are picked and turned into wine. Argentine vineyards that are open to the public include Bodega Vistalba in Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza and Chañarmuyo Estate in La Rioja province.
