Food and wine holidays in Argentina
Savour the bold flavours of an Argentinian red on a luxury wine tasting experience, or sink your teeth into a juicy steak dressed with green, fragrant chimichurri. A food holiday in Argentina is a true journey for your senses.
Sip your way through Mendoza, La Rioja and more on a wine holiday
Argentina’s wines are known throughout the world, because the warm days and crisp nights make for a bold and flavourful grape. Brought by the Spanish more than 400 years ago, wine-making has flourished throughout the country, making varietals like Malbec a local staple—despite not even being from South America. A wine tour through Mendoza, La Rioja, Salta and Patagonia will give the curious traveller the luxury of tasting these world-class vintages.
Eat barbecue the way it should be eaten
Asado is the national dish, and cannot be missed on any holiday to Argentina. Gauchos, long revered in popular culture as symbols of integrity, pride and hard work, would sizzle steaks over an open flame after a long day’s work—these days, you’ll also discover pork, blood sausage and more being cooked up in dreamy combinations with spices, herbs, and chillis, and your Wexas travel consultant can help you find the best spots for savouring a bit of this local tradition.
From empanadas to dulce de leche, yerba mate and helado, Argentina’s food culture is a draw for travellers the world over. Browse our itineraries below, or contact us to tailor your own culinary travel adventure with Wexas.
