My mother and I were looking for a homebase from which we could explore the city of Mendoza and the surrounding wine countries during our Mother's Day trip to Argentina this year. We selected Posada Verde Oliva based on the TripAdvisor reviews. The warm reception we received when asking questions via email only reinforced the positive TripAdvisor rating of this BnB and the hosts. Julia and her staff are warm and caring people who were more than willing to make a dinner from scratch if we did not feel like leaving. They provided references for a driver who took mom and I to Uco Valley and Lujan de Cuyo for wine tastings, site seeing and amazing meats cooked on woodfire grills. Posada Verde Oliva bottles their own olive oils and wine, both of which we tried onsite. Breakfast included breads, cheeses, jams, butters and eggs prepared any way you like - our favorite was scrambled with olive oil, which came served in a lovely clay bowl. The homebrand wine was available by the bottle with dinner and paired well with the country meat and potatoe casserole we tried for dinner, and also with the cheese tray we opted to enjoy poolside our first evening in town. After long days of exploring the countryside it was always nice to return to Julia and the other travellers here at Posada Verde Oliva. We watched the birds perch in the tall trees around the property as we lounged poolside. We enjoyed lazy strolls through the vineyard and pondered the canals cut through every home's yards. Shared casual conversation about our day's experiences while sitting on the indoor couches listening to Tango music with a mother and son from Germany, also a Mother's Day trip. Enjoyed breakfast overlooking the vineyard with a couple from California on their anniversary trip. Sipped the house wine while we browsed the travel magazines on the outdoor couches until the sun slipped so low behind the trees we were forced to move closer to the light from the picture window. Thank you for a wonderful Mother's Day.
