Our tour to Argentina and Chile is two weeks of delicious wines, good food but also many other experiences. We will get to know these two countries, South America’s most important wine countries, not only through the wine and the gastronomy but also through the nature, the cities, the countryside and of course, the people.
We will get to know the French grape varieties that have found a new home on the other side of the globe, such as malbec and carmenère. We discover the impact of the climate. Although it is hot during the summer, the nights are often cool, which gives freshness to the wines.
Our lunches are a highlight every day. The meat is often cooked outdoors on the grill, asado, and the delicious onion-filled empanadas, are traditionally baked in special clay ovens.
Another highlight is the bus trip across the Andes. We go from Mendoza to the Chilean coastal city of Viña del Mar. It will be a day full of contrasts.
We will also visit some of the cities: Buenos Aires and Santiago de Chile, Valparaiso, Viña del Mar, Santa Cruz in Chile and the wine capital Mendoza in Argentina.
