There are vineyards on both sides of the Andes mountain range. It’s very dry in Mendoza on the Argentine side. The wines are full-bodied with an abundance of fruit. They often have a good freshness, thanks to the altitude of the vineyards.

On the other side of the mountains, in Chile, the vegetation is, most of the time, greener and lusher. The character of the wines depends on whether the vineyards are located near the mountains or the sea. The Pacific Ocean is cold, and grapes such as pinot noir and sauvignon blanc thrive in the vineyards here.

We visit Casablanca and San Antonio, just a few kilometres from the Ocean. In Valle Central, the heart of Chile’s wine industry, we visit Colchagua, known for their fine cabernet sauvignon and carmenère.

On our tour, there will also be numerous opportunities to admire the landscape and get to know the countries’ traditions. Our bus will take us across the Andes between the two countries, a memorable one-day journey that includes many stops. We visit Buenos Aires, where we, among other things, enjoy a tango show. We spend one morning in the stunning harbour city of Valparaíso.

We become winemakers for a morning when we try (often with good results) to blend our own wine. We enjoy high-quality meals, the lovely meat not least, pisco sour, fantastic wines and exciting winemakers. Argentina and Chile have a lot to offer.

Come along and discover their wines with us.
