Detailed Description

Argentina is a country steeped in memories of the indigenous peoples to Spanish colonialists, the spirit of the Independence movement to the growth of a celebrated wine industry. Your 12-day wine tour celebrates the culture of vintners in Argentina and the diverse flavors of the vine tempered by the characteristics of the soil. Sample the stunning richness of the cuisine and the wealth of cultures from Buenos Aires to Salta, Mendoza to Cafayate during a remarkable wine-tasting experience perfect for oenophiles or amateur wine-enthusiasts.

The sumptuous splendor of Argentina emanates outwards of Buenos Aires, a city acting as the center of cultural history dating back to the Spanish colonial settlement in the 16th century. The variety of neighborhoods becomes a precursor to the wine regions showing how even regions within such close-knit proximity develop distinctive attributes. Exploring the city reveals the treasures of baroque architecture and the charms of boutique shops lining the outdoor shopping districts, as well as the wealth of wineries providing introductions to the flavors of Argentine wine and cuisine.

Mendoza has become the center of Argentina’s famous wine region with sub-regions blossoming through the use of different varietals and combinations. The quiet but mineral-rich oasis shines with exuberant flavors deriving from a culinary revolution beyond wine to include chocolates and ice cream. The different villages, wineries, and vineyards around the Mendoza region include the Malbec growing region of Lujan de Cuyo and the diverse region grape varietals in Maipu. The city provides wonderful opportunities to cycle around the vineyards and explore the panoramic mountain views of the Andean foothills.

Salta is another celebrated wine-growing region in Argentina also known for its preserved colonial architecture. The cobbled streets create a connection with the indigenous communities around the northern region, in addition to surrounding vineyards running from the arid landscape to the high-altitude plain. The landscape boasts majestic gorges shimmering with orange rock and lush riverbanks leading to vineyards thriving in the cooler climate on the Andean plateau. From museums displaying indigenous artifacts and art to a golden baroque pulpit in the church at Jujuy, Salta becomes your epicenter for wines and culture in the lesser-visited northwest.
