Argentina Culinary & Wine Tours is owned and operated by Chef Ricardo Fernandez Battini and his wife, Suzanne through their company Chef Ricardo LLC licensed in North Carolina. Privately escorted tours are carefully curated to ensure guests have an immersive first class experience. Enjoy some of our favorite moments featured in the 2015 and 2016 photo gallery.

We offer two trips: the first pairs the capitol of Argentina, Buenos Aires with the wine country of Mendoza.  The second trip pairs Buenos Aires with the jewel of Patagonia, San Carlos de Bariloche. Here is a quick snapshot of the time and general activities for each location. Guests enjoy world-class accommodations and an exclusive insider food and wine experience. Our tours are the perfect blend of guided adventure and leisure—including luxurious spas, golf, museums, art, shopping, or simply taking in the view.

Our next trips are slated for November 2019.  We also offer private trips for families and other friend groups.  You may either request one of our existing itineraries, or talk with us to customize your own.
