Detailed Description

Argentina is one of the largest producers and exporters of wine in the world and your 8-day wine tour immerses you in the luxuries of culture that has emerged from a focus on quality varietals. The European vines and wine heritage brought by immigrants in the 19th and 20th centuries have turned into a culture specific to the vineyards of Mendoza and the arid northwest. The fundamental part of the culinary traditions in the city reflects luxurious style for formal and informal gatherings valuing the superiority in structure, complexity, concentration, and potential.

Your expansive wine tour begins with your arrival in Mendoza and the Primera Zona of the winegrowing region resulting in the most cultivated vines. Mendoza embodies the relaxed attitudes and an enthusiastic connection to wine production. The serene streets are filled with cafes and chocolate shops, restaurants and ice cream shops. The bodegas around glow with lush vines and vibrant flavors specific to the micro-regions in which the grapes are grown. The city erupts with tasty treats connected the wines, including confectionaries and bakeries. Family-run wineries highlight the different characteristics of similar grapes like Malbec grown on different sections of the terroir dominated by the rugged foothills of the Andes to the west.

The stylish, sustainable vineyards harmonize viniculture and nature offering samples of the most desirable flavors emphasized by oak barrels, steel vats, and the properties of the soil. The town of Cafayate is nestled into the Andes with vines spreading along the foothills growing iconic grapes like Torrontés and Malbec. Colomé unravels the marvels of the secluded wineries in the northwest. The estancia embodies a blend of history and modernity with an antique homestead and a contemporary art museum dedicated to light. The winery maintains the world’s highest vineyard and offers horseback riding excursions around the tens-of-thousands of acres allowing you sample exceptional cuisine, activities, and wines.
