Think you know your Malbec? Become a bona fide expert in Argentine wine with a customized lesson and tasting session, led by a local connoisseur who truly knows the ways of the grape. Sneak away to a hidden wine cellar where you’ll get your wine 101 training underway — paired, of course, with some samples of that delicious drink (purely for research, of course!). Finish it all off with a bitter fernet, one of the most popular liqueurs in Argentina.
You’ll start your Buenos Aires wine tour in the trendy area of Palermo Hollywood. There, you’ll not only meet your fellow wine fans on the tour, but also get an introduction to the culture of Argentine wine. You’ll taste your first glass of the country’s famous Malbec at an art gallery, where you’ll also learn what makes Argentine art — and this wine — so unique.
Then, your wine tour takes you to a wine cellar for your own personal tasting bar. A local wine expert will lead the tasting session and teach you everything you wanted to know about Argentine wine, from its culture and origins, to how it’s cultivated, processed, and bottled. As you take in your wine lesson, you will also have the opportunity to taste many of the different wines that Argentina has to offer, because you can’t be an expert without putting those taste buds to work! You’ll also learn how to drink Argentina’s famous Malbec like the locals do — because #localsknow, after all.
After the wine tasting session, your Buenos Aires tour moves onto one of Palermo’s best local bars, where you can taste a real fernet. Hopefully you’ll discover why this bitter digestif is so widely consumed by local Argentineans. You can continue your night at this bar or get the local scoop from your guide on the best nearby spots in Palermo.
