The program is now finalised for 2018! Without a doubt our longest wine tour. It starts in Buenos Aires (with tango), continues to Mendoza, at the foot of the Andes. Then over the Andes, along the country road through a landscape that is strange and enthralling, reaching well over 10,000 feet. Continuing to the Pacific Ocean with a view towards Japan (although maybe not quite visible). A stop in Valparaiso of course, this mythical harbour town. Then going south along this narrow strip of land between the ocean and the Andes.

Two weeks filled with incredible experiences, innumerable delicious wines, magnificent meals, not least the South American asado (meat grilled over an open fire). Through two neighbouring countries, similar in some ways, but still very, very different. A tour that stays in the memory for a long, long time.

  1. Great itinerary and amazing pictures! Chile and Argentina are certainly the two most happening wine countries in South America, producing quality wines and offering a wonderful environment for tourists. The wine tourism in these two countries has developed a lot over the years. Covering both these wine countries at one go could be a little hectic, but absolutely worth it. So many beautiful places to explore and wonderful verities of wine to try. Would love to know more about your experiences in Chile and Argentina once you’re back and ready to share.
