Chile and Argentina, wine countries on each side of the Andes | South America wine tour

Share/like this post:

The mighty Andes Mountain range plays an important role on our wine tour to South America’s two most important wine countries. We spend the first half of the tour in Argentina. Then we cross the Andes by bus, a fantastic journey that offers breathtaking scenery. The border with Chile is at an altitude of 3,000 meters (9,800 feet).

The wine tour to Argentina and Chile shows two different wine cultures and two different styles of wine. Or actually, several different styles. The variation in both countries is today greater than ever. Malbec is indeed dominant in Argentina’s largest wine region, Mendoza, but malbec is different depending on where the grapes have grown.

Chile has warm and cool climates, and the grape varieties are planted where they thrive best. After a couple of days in Buenos Aires, we fly to the city of Mendoza, located in the middle of the wine region of the same name. We are now close to the mountains, towering over the city.

Exciting vineyard visits and fantastic barbecue lunches (asado, as they say here) await us.

We start the Chilean part of the tour on the Pacific coast and then go inland to one of the most famous red wine regions, Colchagua. A dip in the pool feels perfect when we return to the hotel in the afternoons, and, of course, the pisco sour is the country’s most famous aperitif. We end the tour in Chile’s capital, Santiago de Chile.
