Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

This itinerary is best from October to April. Temperatures at their most pleasant in the spring and autumn (September-November and March-April), but please note that traveling during the vendimia (wine harvest) typically first week in March, availability is more limited and at a premium so best to book early. January and February is peak summer when temperatures will be at their highest. May to September is 'winter' in South America with much cooler temperatures.

Itinerary

Celebrate South America's love-affair with the grape on this journey through Chile and Argentina. Visit world-renowned vineyards and sample award-winning wines paired with outstanding cuisine. Whether you’re a wine aficionado or simply curious, experiencing the wine scene in Argentina and Chile may just convert you for life.

  1. Fly to Santiago

  2. Days 1-3: Santiago

    Begin in Santiago, Chile's cosmopolitan capital which has been undergoing a gastronomic revolution in recent years. Explore the city and enjoy a gastronomic tour around local markets, learning about the heritage of some of Chile's best dishes. Should you like to continue into the evening, we are also able to arrange dinner with a local winemaker. Alternatively, enjoy fine dining in some of the city's best restaurants and be sure to ask the sommelier to help pair your dishes with carefully selected wines for the ultimate tasting experience.

    Accommodation: The Singular Santiago (2 nights)

  3. Days 3-6: Central Valley

    Having sampled the produce, drive out to the source today, escaping the city for Chile’s beautiful wine region. Stay at a boutique lodge, famous for producing some of the country’s best wines, enjoy a slower pace of life and sweeping panoramas. Other than fabulous wine tastings, soak up the sun by the pool, wander the vineyards, enjoy a pampering massage, hike through native forest or explore on horseback with a Chilean cowboy.

    Accommodation: Clos Apalta Residence (3 nights)

  4. Days 6-9: Mendoza area

    Drive back to Santiago and check in for a flight that will take you over the Andes to Mendoza, the heart of Argentina's wine lands and home to the famous Malbec grape. Stay at a wine lodge, surrounded by vineyards and in the shadow of the spectacular Andes. Indulge in private wine tastings, go bodega hopping (we can advise the very best to visit!), soak up the idyllic views, explore on horseback and savour a wine-paired feast in the vineyards or an “asado” bbq under the stars. Included in your stay is a three course dinner at one of the country’s finest restaurants and a massage to ease tired muscles.

    Accommodation: The Vines Resort & Spa (3 nights)

  5. Days 9-10: Buenos Aires

    Continue on to your final stop, Buenos Aires, Argentina's vibrant capital with distinct neighborhoods and ounces of charm. For those keen to delve deeper into Buenos Aires’ culinary scene, we can organize a bespoke tour of the capital with a renowned food writer, visiting her favorite haunts or personalized wine tastings with a top sommelier. After indulging in the best of South America's winelands, it's time to head home.

    Accommodation: Legado Mitico (1 night)

  6. Fly home from Buenos Aires
