Rooted in the pleasures of making, drinking and sharing wine, The Vines Resort & Spa immerses you in the delights of Argentine culture, rustic natural beauty, and warm-hearted hospitality. Premier Tours & Travel has the pleasure of bringing you a virtual taste of Argentina and The Vines Resort & Spa while we prepare for our 5-Star Bites of Argentina private, small-group tours in November 2021 and February 2022.
The Vines of Mendoza Wine Director, Mariana Onofri, will guide our virtual wine tasting of 2019 Uco's Playground Rose from Uco's Playground. Ms. Onofri has been the Wine Director since 2009, overseeing all vineyard owner winemaking plans and customized wine design. This includes overseeing blending sessions and barrel tastings for the company’s 185 Private Vineyard owners, and over 330 fermentations in The Vines' 2016 harvest alone. She oversees all wine selection and wine experiences for the company’s Siete Fuegos restaurant and The Vines Tasting Room.

A Taste for Travel to Northern Spain & DOCa Rioja
On October 22, 2020, participants learned first-hand from Rioja’s “wine maven," Ana Fabiano, DOCa Rioja Brand Ambassador and author, The Wine Region of Rioja, about the richness of Northern Spain:
“Northern Spain is without a doubt the final frontier in western Europe for the seasoned wine aficionado or curious traveler,” according to Ms. Fabiano. “Rioja is abundant in ancient relics, ruins, architecture, centurion vineyards, world-class wines, and Michelin-star cuisine. There is a quiet beauty in the land and an innate pride in its people that speaks to your heart and soul.”
We learned about one of the most celebrated regions of Spain and three Rioja wines hand-selected by Premier Tours & Travel and Ana Fabiano: Marqués de Riscal Reserva (2014 vintage preferred), Muga Rosado, and Vivanco 2016 Crianza. Here's some of the feedback from our guests:

Due to technical difficulties, we do not have a recording of this wonderful event. We will be offering another virtual program about Rioja with Ana Fabiano in early 2021. Please check back!
