Why Visit Argentina?

To truly understand Argentina, a wine tour of its wine regions is a must. Whether it's a wine-tasting tour across Mendoza, sipping wine in the vineyards as you gaze upon the Andes or tasting wines in Salta grown from some of the highest altitude vineyards in the world. This wine country offers wine lovers so many incredible experiences to be had. 

From the northern region of Cafayate, Mendoza and Uco Valley all the way to La Pampa and Patagonia - you will find unique wines and wine experiences to be had with grapes that are not just growing, but thriving in their mountainous environments. Head over to the Argentine wine region of Salta and find the Torrontés grape, a grape found in no other country in the world. Taste Torrontés - an aromatic white wine, with a smooth finish.

There are many winery and wine tasting tours you can take in Argentina, such as a scenic wine tour by bike or Asado cooking class or a private lunch and tour of the vineyards by the winemakers themselves. The food and wines of Argentina are something the locals have every right to unashamedly boast about, alongside your tastings, why not also pair mouthwatering empanadas, asado and tamales to get a feel for their flavoursome traditional cuisine?

After sipping wine into the evening and savouring the taste of this magnetic country, explore the many milongas (tango dance clubs). Don’t allow inexperience to hold you back, there are plenty of classes you can attend with teachers willing to show you the steps along with the passionate energy that goes into this world-renowned dance!
