Liz Caskey Culinary & Wine Experiences Announce The Age of Argentina Tour to Explore Vibrant Buenos Aires and Mendoza in August 2011

Chef, sommelier, cookbook author and owner Liz Caskey of Liz Caskey Culinary & Wine Experiences, a South American-based boutique luxury travel firm specializing in culinary & wine journeys in Chile, Argentina and Uruguay, is leading a special one-time deluxe tour for an intimate group in Buenos Aires and Mendoza, Argentina from August 6-12, 2011, including a stay at Mendoza’s exclusive Relais & Chateaux hotel Cavas Wine Lodge.

Buenos Aires, Argentina, March 17, 2011 --( Argentina—and its lush wines—is seducing foodies and wine lovers around the world with its sublime signature varietals like malbec and torrontes with a backdrop of snowcapped mountain peaks and loads of culture to boot. 2011 is the Age of Argentina.

The Age of Argentina tour commences on August 6 in Buenos Aires and ends on August 12 in Mendoza, Argentina’s wine country, with three nights in a luxury studio-suite at Ayres de Recoleta Plaza hotel in Buenos Aires and a three-night stay in a private cabana at the Cavas Wine Lodge in Mendoza, which is offering an uncharacteristically affordable, low season price.

Other highlights include the meals and cultural excursions: from a multi-course food and wine pairing dinner at a closed-door wine and food society in Buenos Aires to a private luncheon with one of the city’s most innovative chefs, a colloquial city tour with a visit to Recoleta cemetery, and private tango lessons and tickets to the city’s hottest tango show. In Mendoza wine country travelers visit a variety of vineyards and wineries to participate in barrel tastings, sample different malbecs, and enjoy an array of sparkling wines.

The tour is in total comfort with first-class van transportation, daily buffet breakfasts, full course lunches and dinners, private winery visits and tastings, 24-hour in country support, and of course, owner and local host Liz Caskey as your expert guide.

While August is technically the end of “winter” in Argentina, weather is usually a mild 55-65 degrees Fahrenheit, perfect for travellers looking to escape the U.S’s summer heat and the crowds in Argentina during much of the year.

The group is limited to a maximum 12 people and only a few rooms remain. Rates for this specialty tour start from US$3,650 per person for double occupancy.
