The Mendoza Wine Harvest Festival gives itself away by its name. Held in late February or early March in Mendoza, Argentina. This celebration of the grape harvest attracts thousands of wine-loving visitors from around the world, as it's a great time to sample Mendoza's best wines while taking in the elaborate processions celebrating the beverage.
Along with plenty of wine drinking, you will also find sporting events and prayer. The prayer is to give thanks for the harvest of the season and is followed by gauchos who dress in their traditional outfits and use wooden carts that were traditionally used during the harvest over a century ago.
