Argentina is packed with wine regions, making Argentina wine travel a wonderful thing to do. Here are five (of many) reasons to try it for yourself:
There are 1500+ wineries in Argentina’s three main wine regions, and all promise to give you a personal experience in the country’s stunning countryside. Whether you’re craving an aromatic Torrontes in Salta, a classic Cabernet Sauvignon in the north, or a glass of Malbec in Mendoza, Argentina wine travel has it all.
While drinking wine in a vineyard is the most popular activity in Argentina’s wine region (and it should be), there are other ways to explore the vineyards, too: like cycling! Get with a tour guide and hop on a bike as you pedal through Cafayate, Mendoza, Uco Valley and more. When you do, you won’t be able to beat the views. Think: vines of grapes growing in front of snowy mountains, all under the bright South American sunshine.
Did you read that? We aren’t joking. The famed Heladeria Miranda, in Cafayate, has wine sorbets that come in flavors like red-ruby Malbec, crisp yellow Torrontes and more. Argentina wine travel suddenly became even sweeter.
There are spa days, and there are spa days inspired by wine. In this part of the world, some spas offer “grape extracts” baths coupled with a grape exfoliation and massages. So basically, you can take a wine bath while drinking a glass of wine. Heaven!
See the Andes without having to climb it. With Surtrek’s help, find a local gaucho to take you up the mountains on horseback. When you get to the top, you can enjoy a lunch made of fresh local produce, plenty of wine (obviously), and gaucho stories to last you for years to come… or at least until your next visit.
If your planning Argentina wine travel on your own, get some help from Surtrek, the leader in custom South American travel. Cheers!
