Treat your senses to an all-encompassing tour which captures the essence of the authentic gourmet delights of Argentina, presenting the country’s finest wines and foods.

Starting off in cosmopolitan Buenos Aires, discover the gourmet revolution of the city on private tailor-made tours with top chefs and sommeliers exclusive to Jacada. Then move from the vibrant restaurants of the capital to focus on one of Argentina’s greatest qualities: its world class wine.

Taste your way through the diverse wine regions. Visit renowned Mendoza with its baroque vineyards and expert guides, before travelling deep into the scenic northwest exploring sleepy, rustic towns home to hushed-up bodegas that make some of Argentina’s premium wines. When you’re not enjoying delicious reds and tasty meals at haciendas and fincas, you’ll have the chance to witness jaw-dropping Andean landscapes of gigantic rock formations and rugged national parks.

Then complete your culinary tour with a couple of days’ relaxing with the gauchos in the peaceful Pampas where traditional asados and luxury estancias await you.

Full Day Mendoza Wineries Tour - Central Valley Full Day Mendoza Wineries Tour - Central Valley

Our expert local guide will collect you from your hotel and bring you for an enjoyable sample of the different wineries in the Mendoza area.

The Central Valley or Primera Zona (the closest to the city of Mendoza) includes the counties of Luján de Cuyo, Maipú, Guaymallén and Godoy Cruz. This is the home of Malbec and where some of the most prestigious Argentine wineries are located. Originally from Bordeaux, France, this variety found the ideal place to prosper in Mendoza given the agro-climatic conditions of the area.

It's a private tour and can be entirely specialised to your requirements, just let your travel designer know if you have any special requests.

During the tour we'll visit three different wineries, we suggest a mix of smaller, boutique establishments and the larger operations, to give you a chance to see the contrasts and differences. During the visit you'll always be accompanied by your private guide, though during the visits and tastings themselves you'll also be with the wineries' own guide (and there may be other guests). We can arrange for visits to be entirely private if you prefer.

Finally, in the afternoon, we stop at one of the top Bodega restaurants (such as La Tupina or Ruca Malen) for a chance to really enjoy the wine as it is meant to be; with great food. You have a gourmet tasting lunch paired with wines from the Bodega.

Full day Andes Tour Full day Andes Tour

Your first sighting on this exciting full day Andes tour will be the Pre Mountain Range and the snowy Cordillera Frontal. Whilst driving between these two different ranges, you will witness the scenic Potrerillos Lake before arriving at the Vallecitos ski resort.

Once you have left the ski resort, you will begin trekking into a gorge with the prominent sights of mount Franke and San Bernardo surrounding you. Following a water stream, you will approach the first flat land where many a water spring and the grand mount Vallecitos are found, making it the ideal place to enjoy a tasty lunch.

If the mood takes you, after lunch you will have the option of trekking for a further hour towards a wide valley filled with earth and stones. This area is sometimes covered in snow throughout the winter months so you may be required to track with snow shoes here.

Full day wine tour in Valle de Uco with lunch at Salentein Full day wine tour in Valle de Uco with lunch at Salentein

A scenic drive down Los Cerrillo Route to the Uco Valley, one of Mendoza’s most imposing landscapes and also one of the most fertile ones, especially given its high altitudes. A tour of the state-of-the-art Bodega Salentein and a gourmet lunch.
