Argentina Culinary Wine Tour

All Tour & Travel arrangements are operated by Chef Ricardo, LLC for over 30 years in business.

Two Trips: March 4th – 19th, 2024 and November 4th – 19th, 2024

Buenos Aires – Salta, Mendoza – San Carlos de Bariloche, Patagonia

From the old-world elegance of Buenos Aires to the high altitude vineyards of Salta to the Andes at the Mendoza wine region to the Bariloche—the “garden of Patagonia”—we offer small-group, luxury, food and wine excursions to Argentina, led by Western North Carolina-based Argentinian native Chef Ricardo Fernandez Battini and his wife, Suzanne. Through Chef Ricardo’s personal connections from his homeland, you’ll get to meet the winemakers and experience private tastings and culinary opportunities you won’t find elsewhere. And there’s ample time for leisure exploration on your own as well. Our privately escorted trips cover all in-country flights, transfers, hotels, wine tastings, and some meals while offering an immersive first-class experience. Under the COVID-19 pandemic, we are following all CDC guidelines to ensure the safety of our guests and adapting as regulations shift.

“Terrific tour!! Led by people who know the territories: geography, good food, fine wines and their sources. Met some wonderful people who share the above treasures. Argentina was wonderful and the accommodations were first class.” —Karl, Oregon
