One should perhaps not be a vegetarian when traveling to Chile and Argentina. But of course you can be. We have actually had travellers in Chile-Argentina who have been vegetarians. They have wonderful vegetables, too. One of our lunches is in the middle of a vineyard, under some avocado trees (“palta”), surrounded by the winery’s own vegetable garden. She who prepared the food tells us about her vegetables. But there will undoubtedly be a lot of barbecues.

One might think that there will be a lot of malbec too, and of course, there are great malbecs in Argentina. But there is much else too. Wonderfully aromatic torrontés, juicy syrah, structured cabernet.

It is very special to come here to South America, two neighbouring countries, both Latin, but so different. Different culture and also different wines. Buenos Aires and Santiago. Mendoza and Casa Blanca.

If one has not been here, it is probably difficult to realize the enormous variety that there is. (If you are curious, I can let you know a restaurant that offers pisco with coca leaves in.) Producers who are proud of their bottles. Who gladly show them (and pour them) when we come.

We connect the two countries with a bus trip across the Andes. Grandiose. Different. Beautiful. We have not yet seen a condor. Maybe we will, a next time. Join us on this tour!
