Argentina Wine Tour

A Symphony of Fine Wines and Majestic Views, from Mendoza's Peaks to Buenos Aires' Streets

OVERVIEW OF ARGENTINA WINE TOUR

It is early evening, and winemaker Sebastian Zuccardi is tending to wine enthusiasts who have come to taste his Bonarda label and better understand the nuances of this seductive red grape variety. The wine is aromatic, complex, and refined; the setting is similarly perfect: a restaurant terrace with unrestricted views of the snow-capped Andes mountain range – serrated blades of rock and ice that separate Argentina from its Chilean neighbor.

This is Mendoza, Argentina’s most famous and influential wine region. Its capital, the tree-lined city of Mendoza itself, is recognized as one of the world’s eight Great Wine Capitals, an accolade it deserves. Less than 2 hours flight from Argentina’s capital, Buenos Aires, Mendoza is undoubtedly one of the world’s most beautiful vineyards, an exotic mix of mountains, lush oases of green, and arid semi-desert.

However, for many years, the wines were quietly consumed domestically until the 1990s, which saw a remarkably rapid change of pace for what is now the world’s ninth-biggest wine producer. After prolonged inertia, old cellars were rejuvenated, and glamorous new ones were built with outside investment. As a result, modern Mendoza, and indeed wider Argentina, is a wine tourism paradise. The two most essential sub-regions – Valle de Uco and Luján de Cuyo – are places where one encounters some of the world’s highest vineyards. The altitudes at which Argentine vineyards flourish would be unthinkably high in Europe: from 700 to 1,400m, and even up to 3,015m in the northern province of Salta. A winemaker’s paradise indeed.

Despite the undeniable appeal of Argentina’s wine regions, there is far more to this luxury destination than the grapes alone. With its enticing blend of extreme landscapes, fascinating history, and vibrant culture, Argentina offers much and asks little. Buenos Aires is a case in point, a city of such architectural splendor (not to mention legendary nightlife) and diversity that many visitors never wish to leave. And so it’s a cliché, sure, but a cliché that works for this multifaceted country: there is something for everyone in Argentina.
