Day 1: Meet Mendoza

Argentina's Mendoza region produces nearly 70% of the country's wine. Prolific and beautiful, the Central Andes command the horizon and provide this region with an unforgettable landscape. Your guide will meet you at the airport to take you on a tour of the city including the original city foundations at Plaza Pedro del Castillo. Visit its bustling central plazas and celebrated General San Martin park. After the tour, check-in to your hotel. Mendoza's outdoor cafes that are perfect for dinner or sipping wine as the sun sets over the city. Relax and toast your travels.

Day 2: Cooking Class and Wine Tasting - Salud!

Learn the secrets of Argentine cuisine! After breakfast, the guide will pick you up from the hotel for a morning wine tasting tour of one of Mendoza's pristine vineyards. Next you are joined by an expert Argentine chef who will share secrets about the delicate science and art of pairing a great wine with a great meal. This is an exclusive cooking class where you will learn not only how to prepare a traditional Mendocino dish, but also the local histories and customs that go behind Argentine cuisine. After a private lunch - stomachs happily content - spend time enjoying a tasting at this winery. You will quickly come to appreciate the detailed process that goes into making each wine independent and unique.

Day 3: Mendoza Free Day

Today is a free day to discover the natural beauty of the Mendoza region. Spend the day relaxing with a glass of wine. Or you have optional tours that can be arranged locally, depending on your preferences.

Travelers can choose to traverse the countryside on horseback or take a moderate trek to Quebrada del Salto waterfalls. The horseback riding tour takes roughly 2 hours around Potrerillos and Cacheuta. This horseback riding trip is designed for beginners. For those interested in exploring the countryside by foot instead, enjoy a 3-hour trekking journey that ventures the mountainous, canyon-filled landscape of Quebrada (Gulch) del Salta. At the gulch's waterfalls, trekkers have the option of taking an 18 meter rappel. In the late afternoon, return to Mendoza city and explore the city at your leisure.

Another option is to continue to explore the wineries of the Mendoza valley with a visit to Lujan de Cuyo, one of the most important wine regions in Argentina. The morning begins with visiting the vineyards and sampling the wine at Tapiz Bodega. Next we travel a short 15 minutes southwest of Mendoza to Achaval Ferrer winery to taste the distinct wines of this exclusive vineyard. Finish the tour at Ruca Malen winery and lunch in the shadow of Los Andes mountain range. (Estimated 6-hour tour)

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
