What You Can Expect
During the tour, you’ll learn how this dry area became a wine-growing oasis with irrigation techniques that capture the snow melt runoff from the Andes Mountains. Originally created by the indigenous Huarpes people, this system is now run by computerized drip irrigation, which allows Argentina to be one of the top wine-producing countries in the world.
You'll visit two wineries and enjoy a wine tasting session, during which you'll become familiar with the local wines. Your English- and Spanish-speaking guide will explain the technique of wine tasting, wine production, the importance of the cork in the bottle and the correct way to handle a glass.
