Argentina may be best known for its red malbec wines, but the country’s varied terrain yields quite a few varietals—enough to pique the interest of even the most serious wine lover. Here’s how to experience the nation’s wine scene in Buenos Aires.

Must-Try Varietals
When you think of Argentinean wine, it’s probably a juicy, red malbec that first comes to mind. Those setting off to discover Argentina’s best-known varietal will likely have Mendoza pegged as their top destination, but there are plenty of places in Buenos Aires to try malbec. Torrontes is a unusual, crisp, floral white grape that grows best in the high mountainous regions around Salta. And although merlot is generally blended with malbec to produce a smooth table wine, some producers make a 100-percent varietal that can rival a French wine.

Must-Do Experiences
  • Explore chic wine bars and restaurants on a walking tour of the Palermo neighborhood.
  • Feast on Argentinean cuisine during an interactive dining experience featuring steak, empanadas, mate, alfajores (cookie sandwiches traditionally filled with dulce de leche or other confection and covered in chocolate or powdered sugar)—and, of course, wine.
  • Sample a few of the world’s finest malbecs at some of Palermo’s hippest speakeasies and secret cafés.
  • Sip some wines (and nibble on tapas) at a prestigious cellar under the direction of a professional sommelier.
