FAQs about South America Wine Tours

Thinking about a South America wine trip? Here’s a list of frequently asked questions we often hear from our guests.

What are the best destinations in South America for Wine Tours?

Argentina and Chile have the most famous wine in South America and it is some of the best in the world. In the north of Argentina, the area around Cafayate, near Salta is known for Torrontes white wine and reds such as Malbec are produced here too. In Mendoza, around two-thirds of Argentina’s wine is produced and there are great options for staying on vineyards here. In Chile, the whole area surrounding the capital – Santiago has numerous vineyards, many of which can be visited on a day trip and some you can stay overnight at. South American wine is not just limited to Argentina and Chile though. Southern Brazil is increasingly gaining recognition as an excellent wine producer and Uruguay too is an excellent destination for oenophiles.

What are the Best Foodie Tours in South America?

The top destinations for food tours in South America include Lima in Peru and Buenos Aires in Argentina. Peruvian food is famed for its variety and excellent chefs – take a culinary tour of Lima including some of the city’s best restaurants. Learn about the four staples of Peruvian cuisine – potatoes, legumes, corn and grains such as quinoa. In Buenos Aires, there are fantastic tours centering around grilled meat and wine! Brazil too has particularly good meat, served in specialist restaurants known as churrascarias. A food tour of Rio de Janeiro takes you to local markets and specialist restaurants where you can sample cuisine from throughout Brazil.

What wine is Argentina known for?

In particular, Argentina is famous for Malbec wine, a rich red wine. Many other wines are producing in Argentina too, including Cabernet Sauvignon and Tempranillo. While most wines in Argentina are red, the cooler Salta area produces some white wine. On any tour of Argentina, there is plenty of opportunities to sample the wine and we can arrange special wine tours.

Is South American food spicy?

In general no, most South American food is not spicy. This is a common misconception often based on Mexican food which is very different from South American food. Sometimes a hot sauce such as ají or picante is provided alongside a dish – but the dish itself is not spicy at all in most cases.
