Why Visit Buenos Aires?
Allow us to introduce to you the magnificent, large and sprawling capital city of Argentina, a destination full of zest, glamour and plenty of flavour - Buenos Aires. This is the city that proudly birthed the tango, a dance that has altered Argentinian culture and helped unify all walks of life, from the working-class European immigrants to the native Argentinians and former slaves.
Its incredible dual European and Latin American heritage is what gives this remarkable city its interesting and diverse flare. But the diversity of the city doesn’t just stop at the mesmerising architecture or its people, it is also found in Buenos Aires' flavour-driven food and wines. The food scene in Buenos Aires is a carnivore’s idea of heaven. Find the juiciest steaks at Parrillas (steakhouses), grilled to perfection and sizzling with rich and smoky flavours. Many locals often pair their meaty dish with a glass of bonarda - a fruity Argentine red considered to be the second most important red grape, with Malbec being the first.
Plan your wine holidays to Buenos Aires, a city well-known for producing high-quality wines, mostly in the town of Médanos which is located in the southern parts of Buenos Aires Province - an ideal location for winegrowing. The grapes, thanks to the windy springs, develop thicker skin giving the wine a more intense colour and long sunlight exposure increases the sugar content in the grapes. It’s close location to the ocean also means the Médanos terroir consists of sandy soil as opposed to limestone. Wines you can expect to get from Médanos include Malbec, Sauvignon Blanc, Tannat, Chardonnay, Petite Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo.
