However, those studies were not conducted in a controlled environment with hot tubs and infinity pools and steaks grilled over roaring fires.
So just to be sure...
Raise a glass to The Vines Resort & Spa, a few hundred acres of Mendoza wine country where you can live like an Argentine Dionysus, taking reservations now.
Think of this as summer camp for oenophiles (it’s basically July down there right now, you know). You’re staying in one of 22 villas, all tucked in a valley of nothing but vineyards and panoramic views of the Andes. And like any good camp, they keep a pretty strict schedule...
10am: Breakfast on your private terrace. Wine optional.
11am: Winemaking lessons in the vineyards. Wine not optional.
Noon: Proceed to private cabana at the infinity pool. (Pairs well with wine, too.)
1pm: Bocce ball/wall climbing/horseback riding/continuation of infinity pooling.
9pm: Sunset dinner at the fire pit, courtesy of Francis Mallmann—basically the Daniel Boulud of Argentine wood-grilling.
11pm: Hot tubbing with the friends you made over skirt steak and bottles of red.
Midnight: Probably not bocce.
