Channel your inner-Vulcan and sign up with Ross Wine Tours to Argentina to grill up a storm and drink up some great reds and wines from across this remarkable country.

Let expert wine adventurer David Lincoln Ross, Founder of Ross Wine Tours (RWT), personally curate a tour of this amazing country. Today, Argentina is disrupting the Old-World wine regions as never before, offering fresh, exciting interpretations of classic red varietal wines – Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Tannat – as well as its white varietals, including the native Torrontés, a spicy, fragrant alternative to Chardonnay.

Vineyard in Cafayate, Argentina.

From Argentina’s Salta region in the north to Mendoza, in the shadow of the Andes, to Patagonia in the extreme south, RWT offers a privileged entrée to innovative wineries via private, winemaker-led tours and tastings, with each visit amplified by local gastronomic dishes.

Argentinian wines are so much more than their world-class Malbecs, great as they are. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, other key Bordeaux varieties, are increasing in popularity, both as a single varietal bottlings and in blends with Malbec. Then, there is the earthy, robust Tannat grape, originally from southwest France, this grape yields rich wines perfect with asados, outdoor barbeque roasts of steak and lamb with the pit-masters of Argentina.

In addition, Argentina’s Torrontés grape, a native white varietal, is gaining popularity. A hybrid cross of Criolla and Muscat, Torrontés tastes like a blended combination of Chardonnay and Viognier; it’s floral, fruity and extremely aromatic; and like Malbec, Torrontés has won a growing following with new global consumers who themselves have help make Argentina a prime mover in the world of wine.

Ross Wine Tours is ready to create a fascinating, private tour to Argentina’s key growing regions, Mendoza Valley, and all the way to the higher-elevation vineyards north, where some of the best wines are being produced. We can also take you to a private, innovative property, with luxury accommodations and a chance to grill outdoors on an estancia (large cattle ranch), to Patagonia, where a few pioneering winery owners are producing some very exciting Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines.

Ross Wine Tours specializes in designing custom wine tours of the world’s most celebrated wine regions.  Enjoy exclusive access to private wineries, special vintages, and food pairings from some of the worlds most celebrated chefs.  All led by renowned writer and wine expert, David Lincoln Ross, who has been featured in The New York Times Sunday Magazine, Wine Spectator, Time, and Wine Enthusiast.
