With the snow-capped Andes in the background and an extremely blue sky, Mendoza, the largest wine region in Argentina, is a magnificent sight. The wines are known for their powerful character. But making full bodied wines is not enough any more for the more ambitious Mendoza producers. “We also look for identity, especially for our top wines, it’s very important. We want to have powerful wines, but with the elegance from the old world”, says José Alberto Zuccardi.

Also in Chile the producers talk a lot about elegance. To achieve it they look for new locations for their grapes, sometimes close to the Pacific Ocean, sometimes up in the mountains. The results are as stunning as they are in Mendoza. The wines from both countries are gaining in complexity. A reason as good as any to visit these two unforgettable wine countries.

The wine tour to Chile and Argentina begins in late January.
