ABOUT THE TRIP
This special Sister Cities trip was developed by to be a
unique experience, immersing participants in Argentina’s gourmet wine and food
culture. You will learn about the Argentine wine industry from the ground up—at
plant nurseries (where grapevines are cloned and grafted), vineyards (where
grapes are grown and harvested), wineries (where grapes are turned into a
finished product), and restaurants (where consumers come into contact with wine
at the end of the production, marketing and sales chain). You will learn about
Argentina’s gourmet locally produced food (much of it practically organic) by
visiting farms and production facilities for olive oil, fresh fruits and
Our host in Argentina is David English, a Nashvillian who
has lived and worked in Mendoza for the past ten years. He was instrumental in
forging the Sister Cities relationship with Nashville. As a participant in this
program, you will be taken “behind the scenes” of one of the most important
winemaking regions in the world, introducing you to award-winning wineries,
legendary winemakers and local civic leaders.
Mendoza, a provincial capital of approximately one million
people, gives you the chance to fully immerse yourself in Argentine culture.
Long renowned for its world-class wines, Mendoza has become the center of
Argentina’s wine industry, and because of its proximity to the mountains, a center
for adventure tourism. A friendly city with sunny skies, a dry desert climate
and broad sycamore-lined streets, much of Mendocino life is lived outdoors in
plazas, parks and sidewalk cafés, where visitors have many opportunities for
meeting and getting to know Argentines. In addition, Mendoza provides quick
access to interesting outlying villages, mountains and rural recreational areas
and is just a one hour flight from Santiago, Chile.
Our group will stay at a 4-star hotel in downtown Mendoza,
close to numerous restaurants, shops and a supermarket. The comfortable suites
have a clean and modern style. All suites feature air conditioning, internet
connection, cable TV and other amenities. A beautiful breakfast spread
including meats, cheeses, coffee, and a variety of fruits and pastries is
included with your stay.
