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 explore three distinct areas in Argentina—Buenos Aires, Mendoza and San Carlos de Bariloche. 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 trip will be in November 2019.  Stay tuned for details.
