Day Four in La Bamba

Another side of Argentinian culture awaits you today as our Argentina wine tours venture an hour outside the capital to an authentic estancia, or ranch. After an early breakfast at the hotel, we’ll make our way through the countryside to La Bamba, one of the country’s oldest and most historic estancias. Upon entering through the estancia’s iron gates as horse-riding gauchos gallop along the expansive greens, you’ll marvel that such a traditional ranch is just an hour from the cosmopolitan buzz of Buenos Aires.

Your trip to La Bamba will introduce you to Argentina’s history of equestrian sports, such as polo, and historic ranch life. An incredible spread of barbecued meats served with salads, breads, and potatoes offers a taste of estancia living for lunch.

After we return to the city, you’ll have a few free hours before our final festivities in Buenos Aires. This is the perfect chance to pick up a few souvenirs or explore any local sights you may have missed during your stay.

You may not be hungry for more after the day’s impeccable dining experiences, but for those who still have an appetite, the evening includes an optional dinner just a short walk from the hotel. At Piegari Ristorante, you’ll unearth the Italian side of Argentina (after all, about 40% of Argentinians are of Italian descent).
