Silversea Luxury Cruises To BUENOS AIRES

BUENOS AIRES
BUENOS AIRES

Glamorous and gritty, Buenos Aires is two cities in one. What makes Argentina's capital so fascinating is its dual heritage—part European, part Latin American. Plaza de Mayo resembles a grand square in Madrid, and the ornate Teatro Colón would not be out of place in Vienna. But you’ll know you’re in South America by the leather shoes for sale on cobbled streets and impromptu parades of triumphant soccer fans. Limited-production wines, juicy steaks, and ice cream in countless flavors are among the old-world imports the city has perfected.

El Calafate Glaciers

Mendoza Wine Region

Argentina has taken the international wine world by storm. Coming out of near obscurity, the Argentine wine industry has shown the world's wine professionals and consumers the incredible potential for quality in its high-altitude, mountain vineyards. The international press has been gracious with its praise and recognition, too. In 2009, the respected pages of Robert Parker's 'The Wine Advocate' awarded Argentina no fewer than 200 wines rated above 90 points. Whilst consumers throughout the world have been excited by the reasonable prices of these wines, they have also been frustrated by difficulties in locating the rather limited number of bottles produced. Mendoza has a wide array of wineries. There are 1,341 active wineries in the province of Mendoza, and the cultivated area is approximately 559,570 acres (about 226,450 hectares); a mere three percent of the province's total surface area. During this four-night excursion to the Mendoza wine region and Agrelo, the 'Napa Valley' of Mendoza and home to some of the biggest names in the Argentinean wine industry, discover the exceptional wineries that are rewriting the history of Argentine wine. Following an airport transfer and flight from Buenos Aires to Mendoza, transfer to the Park Hyatt Mendoza for check-in, followed by a dinner featuring International cuisine at a cosy, local restaurant. After breakfast and an overnight stay at the hotel, transfer to the Agrelo Wine Region for private visits and tastings at the Benegas and Matervinis wineries, and lunch paired with wines at the Decero Winery. Following dinner on your own, an overnight stay and breakfast at the Park Hyatt Mendoza, transfer to the high mountain areas of the majestic Andes. Visit Aconcagua National Park, with optional walks to the Puente del Inca site or Los Horcones Viewpoint, then proceed for a Criollo lunch in a typical steakhouse, accompanied by exquisite views of the Andes. Dinner will be served at Grill Q restaurant, within the Park Hyatt Hotel - Mendoza. The rest of the evening is at your leisure. After breakfast at the hotel, transfer to the airport for a scheduled, flight to Trelew via Cordoba. Following dinner, an overnight stay and breakfast at the hotel, check-out and transfer to the Estancia San Lorenzo. Upon arrival, visit the nearby Magellanic Penguin Colony, home to over a half-million penguins during peak season. Following your visit, transfer back to the Estancia San Lorenzo for a barbecued lamb lunch. After lunch, your Mid-Voyage Land Adventure concludes on Day Five with a transfer to the port of Puerto Madryn. Upon arrival, embark the ship.

After disembarking the ship, transfer from the pier in Buenos Aires to AEP Airport for your scheduled, approximately two-hour flight to Mendoza.

Upon arrival, meet your local guide and transfer to your hotel for check-in, with some free time to freshen-up before dinner.

Tonight, meet your guide and proceed for the short walk to a cosy, nearby restaurant, Maria Antonieta, for a dinner featuring International cuisine. After dinner, return to the hotel on-foot.


Overnight in a City View Room at the Park Hyatt Mendoza - Mendoza


DAY TWO - Tuesday, January 28, 2020 - Mendoza/Agrelo Wine Region/Mendoza


Agrelo wine region

The prime winery area in Mendoza, Agrelo is where many of the best-known, export-oriented Argentine wineries are located. If there is a Napa Valley in Mendoza, this is it. No shopping malls here; only some of the biggest names in Argentine wine.


Breakfast and a transfer to the Agrelo wine region

After breakfast at the hotel, meet your guide and depart for the scenic, approximately 45-minute transfer to the Agrelo wine region, located approximately 28 miles (about 45 kilometres) from downtown Mendoza. Your full-day excursion features lunch, top-shelf wine tastings, local specialities and chilled water; wine and restaurant tips are included.


Private Visit and Tasting at the Benegas Winery

Your first stop features a private visit and wine tastings at Benegas, a traditional winery that belonged to the family of Gladys Alurralde Norton, mother of the current owner, Federico J. Benegas Lynch. Federico was actually born in the property's main house, where he still lives to this day. Throughout his childhood, he worked every step of the way, helping his father in the winemaking process.


About the Benegas Winery

Benegas is focused on quality, and celebrating its Finca Libertad terroir. They believe in the judicious use of oak, maintaining it as a background component in the wine. Tannins should be balanced and the finish long. The total production here is only 30,000 cases. Michelle Roland says, "Benegas wines have a strong personality, which is the result of a very unique terroir for its quality, and the combination of French and Argentine traditions. The wines are a reflection of Frederico Benegas Lynch's passion, and his constant search for excellence."


Private Visit and Tasting at the Matervinis Winery

Next, transfer to Matervinis, a new boutique winery dedicated to experimental soils. Their founders, however, are not new to the winemaking world; Santiago Achaval and Roberto Chipresso are the former owners, founder and winemakers of acclaimed Achaval Ferrer. Today, through their new project, they aim to the exploration of the oldest geologies of pre-Cordillera soils, and their impact on wine personality and flavours. With a very limited production of wines and concentration on high quality, these pioneers are already making a revolution in the industry. Following a guided visit and tasting, transfer to the Finca de Caro Winery.


Gourmet lunch paired with wines at the Decero Winery

Once a bare patch of dirt in the foothills of the Andes, Finca Decero is now a one-of-a-kind vineyard, where each vine is nurtured by hand and the winemaking is without compromise. Free from restraint and tradition, the creators of the winery developed an 'a mano' (by-hand) approach that is human, sustainable and sensitive to natural differences. Upon arrival at Decero, proceed for a set-menu gourmet lunch at the winery paired with wines.


Hotel transfer, with the remainder of the day at your leisure

After lunch, commence the approximately 45-minute transfer back to the hotel. The remainder of the day is at your leisure.


This evening, dinner is on your own.


Overnight in a City View Room at the Park Hyatt Mendoza - Mendoza


DAY THREE - Wednesday, January 29, 2020 - Mendoza/High Mountain Area/Mendoza


Breakfast and a panoramic drive to the heart of the majestic Andes

Aconcagua National Park, with optional walks to the Puenta del Inca site or Los Horcones Viewpoint

Upon arrival at Aconcagua National Park, take an optional, 30-40-minute walk to the Puente del Inca site, a natural rock formation that forms a bridge across the high-altitude Mendoza River. Alternatively, a ten-minute walk takes you to the Horcones Lagoon, a water reservoir fed by snow, for a visit to the Los Horcones Viewpoint. Here, take in breath-taking views of the mighty Aconcagua, which, at approximately 22,638 feet (about 6,900 meters) above sea level, is the highest mountain in the Americas.


Criollo lunch in a typical steakhouse, accompanied by exquisite views of the Andes

Following your tour, transfer for a Criollo lunch in a typical parrilla (steakhouse) surrounded by impressive views of Andes. After lunch, commence the approximately three-hour transfer back to the hotel. The remainder of the day is at your leisure.

Breakfast, check-out and a transfer to the Estancia San Lorenzo

After breakfast at the hotel and check-out, meet your guide and depart for the scenic, approximately two-hour drive to the Estancia San Lorenzo, a traditional sheep ranch.


Visit to the Magellanic Penguin Colony

Upon arrival, visit the nearby Magellanic Penguin Colony, home to over a half-million penguins during peak season. Although paths for humans are marked, penguins don't pay any attention to these limits, and we may have to walk around them as they sit in the sun and decide their next move.


Transfer back to the Estancia San Lorenzo for a barbecued lamb lunch

Following your visit to the penguin colony, transfer back to the Estancia San Lorenzo. Upon arrival, proceed for a set-menu barbecued lamb lunch.

After lunch, re-board your private coach for the approximately two-hour drive to the port of Puerto Madryn. Upon arrival, embark the ship.
