If you’re the epicurean sort who’s looking to experience some gourmet living, try this culinary trip on for size. You’ll spend 11 days travelling Chile and Argentina, immersing yourself in the Mendoza and Maipo Valley wine regions and taking a taste (or three) along the way. Add to that an estancia (ranch) stay in Uruguay for some tasty BBQ and a visit to a culinary school for a demonstration and more tastings, we can guarantee you won’t find South American cuisine food fresher than this.
