In a dry climate like Mendoza (Argentina), irrigation is vital for the vines. The mighty snow-capped Andes contribute its water and are also a magnificent backdrop for the vineyards. Chile is on the other side of the mountains. But as you will notice, the wines are entirely different. The most important red grape in Argentina is malbec.

In Chile, cabernet sauvignon is the most planted variety. But there is much more, not least carmenère, Chile’s national grape. And both countries make exciting white wines.

Our days are filled with wine tastings, gorgeous lunches, exciting conversations with winemakers. We inspect the vineyards and the grapes that are just about to finish their ripening period. We will see much of the landscape in both countries. We visit Buenos Aires, Santiago and Valparaiso.

We will stay in the pleasant city of Mendoza, in charming Santa Cruz and Viña del Mar at the coast. It is summertime, and the weather is warm and sunny. Join us on our tour to South America and experience its incredible wines and wineries.

Wine tour to Chile-Argentina, January 17-30, 2022.
