Wine & Food in South America
Ceviche, steak, empanadas, wine, pisco... the list goes on!
Often one of the most memorable aspects of a trip is what we eat and drink. Bearing in mind that South America has some of the best restaurants in the world, the prospect of good food and wine is one of the main draws of visiting the area. The wine lands of Mendoza in Argentina and Chile’s Central Valley have long been an attraction for those looking to sample world-class wine and food but these days most of South America’s major cities are filled with world-class restaurants.
