South America is different and very easy to fall in love with. Our wine tour in January takes us to Argentina and Chile, the two most important wine countries in South America. They are close to each other; “only” the vast mountain range of the Andes separates them.
In Argentina, the vineyards are inland in a dry and hot climate. In Chile, there are wine regions both on the coast and in the warmer Central Valley. We will notice the differences in the wines as we visit producers in the two countries.
We start the tour in Buenos Aires. From there, we fly to Mendoza to discover Argentina’s most famous and biggest wine region. We continue across the mighty Andes, where the border with Chile is at 3000 meters altitude.
Once in Chile, we cross the narrow country to reach Viña del Mar on the coast. We visit the slightly cooler wine regions close to the Pacific Ocean, with their superb sauvignon bland and pinot noir. Our last wine region will be the Colchagua Valley, known for its excellent red wines.
There will be many wine tastings, delicious lunches with beef and vegetables on the grill and meetings with dedicated winegrowers. We also have time for some sightseeing. After two intense weeks, we end our tour in Santiago de Chile.
Join us on our wine tour to South America!
