From Buenos Aires, take a domestic flight to Mendoza, located in the heart of the country’s wine country. A private transfer takes you to your luxurious accommodations in the countryside. There, enjoy beautiful vineyard views with the Andes as a stunning backdrop, along with a gourmet restaurant helmed by famed South American chef Francis Mallmann. After settling in, head to the Uco Valley for your first private tastings, with stops at Bodega DiamAndes and Solo Contigo Winery.

The following day, head to the Luján de Cuyo Valley for private tours and tastings at wineries hand-selected by Blue Parallel, customized to your tastes and preferences.
