Mendoza Wine Region ToursDiscover the vineyards of Argentina on this post-trip extension to Mendoza. Upon returning to Buenos Aires’ Jorge Newbery Aeroparque airport, you will connect with your flight to Mendoza, capital of Argentina’s much heralded wine region. Once in Mendoza, transfer (approximately 30 minutes) southwest to the Maipu region – starting point of the wine route and home to some of the most famous and oldest vineyards in the province. Spend a day visiting the various wine bodegas or, depending upon the time of year, you can help prune, harvest, and work the vineyard that surrounds your accommodations. Each evening enjoy exclusive wine tastings before sampling delicious native dishes.

Available only with the Air Inclusive Package.

Single supplement: $295

Day 1 - Begin optional Mendoza Wine Region Extension

Transfer to the airport in El Calafate for our flight to Buenos Aires. There is a $9 US departure tax that must be paid after checking in at El Calafate airport. Upon arrival in Buenos Aires, make your connection with LAN Airlines for your flight to Mendoza. After collecting your luggage in Mendoza and exiting the luggage area, a VBT representative meets you and assists you to your accommodations at Finca Adalgisa, located in the Maipu region at the beginning of Argentina's Wine Route.

Please note: VBT transfer times and departure points are finalized in advance and cannot be modified for individual guests. If you extend your stay beyond the scheduled program dates, return transportation to the airport will be at your own expense. 

Day 2 - Mendoza Wine Region 

By some accounts, Mendoza feels like a Wild West town. Its panoramic setting of jagged Andean peaks and dusty frontiers hardly brings a sophisticated viniculture to mind. During this thrilling extension to one of the world's most prominent wine regions, look deeper into Mendoza's Maipu region, and you'll be welcomed by a warm culture that takes its Malbecs very seriously. In this seldom-visited part of the world, you'll have the option to visit some of the oldest vineyards of Maipu on your own, and sample prize vintages at charming bodegas, learning how Mendoza emerged as one of the wine world's most beloved vinicultures. Tonight sample some of Argentina's wines at a tasting session hosted by the hotel.
