1. 3 day tailor-made private wine tour and tasting in the Uco Valley, Mendoza
Our client wanted to spend 3 days visiting different styles of wineries in the Uco Valley, Mendoza, and staying at a wine estate. We organised a stay amongst the vineyards at a boutique family-owned wine estate in the heart of the Uco Valley. From there, we arranged for a private chauffeur to take them on day 1 to one of the region’s premier wineries for a private tour and tasting with the head winemaker. After lunch amongst the vines they enjoyed a relaxing afternoon by the pool back at their accommodation. On day 2 we organised for a private asado cooking experience (Argentine BBQ) at the estate in which they were staying with a guided wine pairing of the estate’s own wines. On day 3 we organised for a private wine tour of two family-run wineries on horseback with lunch with the family at one of the estates.

2. 7 day tailor-made private wine tour from Salta to Mendoza
Our client wanted to combine a visit to two of Argentina’s wine regions. We organised a private itinerary that allowed our client to experience Salta and Mendoza and led them through the lesser known wine regions of Catamarca and La Rioja on the way. They were chauffeured along the wine valley route extending 1,200km from Salta down into the traditional heartland of Mendoza, through some breathtaking scenery close to the Andes. Along the way, we organised visits to both large and small vineyards, and tastings of the varied wines that are found across the regions as well as the local food and culture.

3. 1 day tailor-made private cooking class and wine pairing lunch in Maipu, Mendoza
Our client was staying in Maipu, Mendoza, and wanted to learn more about the local food and how it paired with Malbec. We organised for a chauffeur to collect them from their hotel and take them to a family-run winery who prided themselves on their long history of both winemaking and their ancestral recipes. Our clients spent a wonderful morning collecting ingredients from the estate’s lands and learning about the family of winemakers as they went. Then, guided by the grandma of the current head of the family estate, they learned how to prepare the different cuts of meat for an Asado, how to create the famous Argentine sauce Chimichurri and how to make sweet empanadas for dessert. After cooking they sat down to lunch to enjoy their cooking and were guided through a tasting of the estate’s full range of Malbecs, learning the subtle differences from each vintage.
