Not many know about the rich and humbling experience Argentina has to offer to wine tourists with its mystical wine regions that produce some of the best wines in the world writes Madhurima Mukhopadhyay.

A lot has been said, written and discussed about the wine regions of Europe, America and Australia. Wine enthusiasts from all over the world throng these places to get a firsthand look of their favorite drink being produced. As a result, wine tourism in America, Australia and Europe is very popular. And while it is an absolute pleasure for anyone to travel to these places, many people still do not know much about another treasure tucked away in the southern hemisphere – Argentina. I say treasure because the country offers a rich and humbling experience to all its wine tourists and anyone who has been here can vouch for that. So if you are looking for a great wine tourism option, march ahead to the wine regions of Argentina and discover a real, mystical land that produces some of the best wines in the world.

The wine regions of Argentina

The wine regions of Argentina include the Cuyo region that comprises of Mendoza, San Juan, and San Luis, the Pampas region that comprises of Córdoba and Buenos Aires, the Argentine Northwest region that includes Catamarca, Jujuy, La Rioja, Salta, and Tucumán, and the Southern Region that includes Río Negro and Neuquén.

The Cuyo region is the most popular as well as the most developed wine region in Argentina. There are a number of hotels and restaurants in the region that make traveling comfortable and enjoyable.

Getting there

Getting to Argentina is quite simple as international flights from all leading destinations such as Dubai, Singapore, Los Angeles, London and Paris arrive at airports across the country. Passengers traveling from India would require a visa, but residents of countries including, UK, USA, France, Brazil, Ukraine, Spain and South Africa, among others, do not require a visa to enter Argentina.


Wine tourism in Argentina becomes all the more pleasurable because of the fine climate of the wine regions of the country. Since the Argentinean wine regions are at a similar distance away from the equator as the regions of France and Italy, the weather here is quite similar to that of these European countries. It is usually cool and sunny. And since the overall climate of Argentina is dry, the diseases that plague the vines in other countries are almost never heard of in Argentina.

Advantages of traveling to Argentina

Apart from discovering a new part of the world, wine tourists visiting Argentina are almost always amazed to discover the surprises associated with wine tourism in Argentina. Ever since the Argentinean peso became weak after the Argentine economic crisis of 2002, many premium hotels are available at low rates. Overall, a tourist out to explore the wine regions of Argentina can complete his travels in a very economical, yet grand manner. This is something that cannot be done in any European, American or Australian wine region!

Exploring the wines of Argentina

The wines of Argentina have been around for a long time but they haven’t been able to achieve the same level of popularity as the wines of Europe and America. Traveling to Argentina therefore gives a wine enthusiast the chance to sample the wines firsthand and also to see how exactly the wine is made in this Latin American country.

Get set, go!

So if you planning to go on a wine tour, you may very well explore the wine regions of Argentina. Apart from the wines, you will also be left mesmerized by the beauty of the nation, the warmth of the people and the luxury of the stay. So get your tickets and visa done and head out to the southern hemisphere for an experience of a lifetime. From the stunning mountainous area of central-west Argentinean Cuyo region, to the fertile South American lowlands of Pampas, there is a lot to see and explore. Trek through the terrains of the Argentine Northwest and visit some of the most beautiful wineries on the way. So pack your bags, build up your wine appetite and get set to whet your throat as well as your soul in the myriad wine estates of Argentina.

Dresden has the oldest Weinachtmarkt (sp? Xmas fair) in Germany. It's a prtety nice city, about an hour or 2 from Berlin. Also, Leipzig has a similar market set up, as well as their huge Christmassy display in their train station/mall.
I've never been to the Dolomites, but they certainly sound like a good place to visit in the wtiner. I was looking at some places in Switzerland too, especially near the lakes but I just need to find a hostel that's open late December!Thanks for your input!
