Buenos Aires: Wine Tour in Palermo
Inside a chic art gallery, kick off your 3-hour tour with a glass of malbec wine, and listen to your guide’s introduction to the dark and spicy varietal that started in French Bordeaux vineyards. The grape, however, thrived in Argentina and is today the country’s most well-known wine.
After that delicious taste, you’ll want more. Follow your guide to a secret wine cellar open just for your small group’s tasting session. In this intimate setting, your sommelier tells you everything you need to know — cultivation, process and bottling — about malbec as well as other varietals.
You'll taste about five wines, paired with scrumptious picada, artfully arranged appetizer plates of usually meats, cheeses, olives and breads. The sommelier tailors your tastings and may also offer cabernet sauvignon, syrah and the white varietal torrontés for you to try, depending on what's available the day of the visit.
Continue on to one of Palermo's best local bars, where you can taste a real fernet. Discover what makes this bitter liqueur so widely popular among locals. Here is where your tour ends, where you can explore the best nearby spots in Palermo on your own.

We have a great time and our guide, caroline, was the best! She gave us so many ideas for the few days that we are staying in BA. we would like to send her a tip—-can you help with that?
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.
Our meeting spot was an obscure corner with a policeman in a bullet-proof vest and machine gun across the street. We were stood up completely after paying 50 bucks in taxi fare. This was our chance to learn about Malbec in Argentina. It was SO disappointing. We have never been stood up via Viator bookings. Dont trust this company. Its Urban Adventures.
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!
