A Taste for Travel to Argentina
March 22, 2021
Premier Tours & Travel partnered with The Vines Resort & Spa — repeatedly recognized as one of the leading hotels in the world — for our Expertly Done Culinary & Wine TraVirtual program dedicated to virtual travel + tasting experiences, featuring our 5-Star Bites of Argentina private, small-group tours in November 2021 and February 2022.
The Vines of Mendoza Wine Director, Mariana Onofri, guided 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. She also provided us with a much-enjoyed overview of the history of The Vines Resort & Spa.

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:
