Spend your first four nights in the luxurious accommodations of Hotel Casa Real on the grounds of one of “The World’s Most Admired Wine Brands 2019” (Drinks International), Viña Santa Rita. Picnic in their vineyards, taste their acclaimed Cabernets, indulge in an authentic Chilean barbecue, and simply settle into to the Chilean countryside and the warmth of its people.
In addition to your time in the Maipo Valley — a destination chosen as one of the top 10 wine travel destinations for 2019 by Wine Enthusiast magazine, you will taste some of the finest wines in the Colchagua and San Antonio Valleys (transported by a private driver). From the famed Casa Lapostolle Winery (of the Grand Marnier Family) and Neyen Winery with its 115-year-old Carménère vines, to the “most daring and innovative” Casa Marin and organic, state-of-the-art Matetic Winery, your palette and your knowledge for Chilean wines will be enhanced.
Your final day and night in Chile will be spent exploring the bustling city of Santiago, experiencing a traditional Chilean dinner and cultural dance show, and rejuvenating in one of the city’s most luxurious hotels.
After a brief domestic flight from Chile, you will touch down in Mendoza, Argentina to begin your exploration of some of this country’s finest wines, cuisine and cultural experiences over the next several days. Your home base for four nights will be The Vines Resort & Spa, named to Condé Nast's Hot List of the 33 best new hotels in the world, where you will have plenty of leisure time to schedule your own personal activities (not included), such as sunrise or sunset horseback riding and spa treatments, or to simply gaze at the Andes Mountains on the not-so-distant horizon.
In addition to a winemaker’s blending session, a gourmet picnic, various tastings, an empanada cooking class, and an unforgettable experience at Francis Mallmann’s Siete Fuegos restaurant, you will have the opportunity to explore various other leading Argentinian wineries near The Vines and in the Uco Valley. Your private driver will shepherd you to Monteviejo, DiamAndes, and/or Salentein.
Spend your final two nights at the classic Palacio Duhau – Park Hyatt Buenos Aires, drinking in the excitement of Buenos Aires by way of a full-day city tour and a fabulous evening of Tango and Milonga before departing back to the United States with an expanded knowledge and appreciation for culture, food, wine, and people of Chile and Argentina.
