What You Can Expect

Malbec Wine Tour in Palermo

Enjoy a wine tasting session at a hidden wine cellar

Meet your guide at an art gallery in trendy Palermo Hollywood and kick off this 3-hour walking tour with a glass of local malbec. Learn about this deep-hued, spicy varietal that originated in the French Bordeaux region but thrives in Argentina's vineyards. 

Follow your guide to a hidden wine cellar, where the sommelier will teach your intimate group about the viniculture of Argentina. Taste five different wines while hearing about the cultivation, harvesting, processing and bottling of malbec and other local varietals. Sample a typical picada, Argentina's version of tapas, which includes bread, olives, meat and cheese. Wine selections depend on your group's tastes and what is available that day.

Move on to one of Palermo's most popular local bars to taste fernet. This bitter aromatic spirit is often served as a digestif and is immensely popular among Argentines. End your tour here, where you are free to linger or head out to explore the neighborhood on your own.

Nadia was a wonderful guide. We had such a lovely evening with her walking around the Palermo district both Hollywood and Soho, stopping in at two art galleries, as well as tasting wonderful wine from the Mendoza region. At Pain et Vin, we had a wonderful discussion with the salesperson. He was so knowledgeable about the region and the wines we tasted. This wasn't as good as going to Mendoza, but we didn't have a lot of time in Argentina to begin with, so this was the next best thing.

Absolutely loved this tour. Small and intimate, we four of us and our guide had a tasting at an art gallery and then walked a short time to our next stop at a wine tasting place and had a sommelier go through a few tastings with us. then off to a little neighbourhood bar on the roof top for their Bueno Aries drink called Ferne. We weren't too keen on it, but it is always nice to try the local specialities.
A great evening!

My guide Laura was amazing: knowledgeable, gracious, intuitive, and very well-organized. I cannot recommend this tour enough. I took it my first night in Buenos Aires, and it wholeheartedly reinforced my enthusiasm for the entire city, as well as Malbec.

Wonderful tour that started out with a visit to an art gallery opening, enjoying a glass of wine and mingling with Argentinians and purchasing small art souvenirs. Then a wine bar with a charming and expert presentation by one of the proprietors on Argentinian wines, especially Malbecs, with ample tasting and tidbits to eat. Ending at a rooftop cafe with Fernet and Coca-Cola! Our local guide for the entire occasion was perfect and professional throughout. A lovely way to get oriented to the vibrant wine scene in Buenos Aires.

We had a very nice evening, I can only recommend the wine tour. We visited several art galleries in Palermo, started the wine tasting with a glass of Blanc de Malbec in one of them, then continued it in a wine bar, where we tried several excellent wines worth mentioning was an amazing Torrontes. Our guide was a very pleasant company and told us a lot of interesting stories about the history of the neighborhood, the wines and the Argentinian life style. We ended the evening in a nice bar where usually locals go after work, and tried one of their favorite drinks, the Fernet Branca with Coke. It was a small group - 6 tourists and 2 Argentinians which joined us at some point during the tour. One of the loveliest evenings we spent in Buenos Aires.
