Know More about this tourMeet your in-the-know guide in the trendy neighborhood of Palermo Hollywood, part of Palermo Viejo, populated with designers and hipsters who trawl art galleries, cafes and boutiques that sprout up in the old Spanish-style homes and converted warehouses lining the cobblestone streets.
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.
