• South America's food and wine captivate visitors

    2009-11-06

    For many travelers, the local cuisine of a potential destination is every bit as important as the scenery - and for true gourmands, maybe more so. With that in mind, food tourists may be tempted to head south this winter, as South American food and Wine has been lauded for generations.

    Popular travel blog, the Perrin Post recommends Argentina and Chile as perfect winter getaways for Northern adventurers. Mild temperature and low prices ensure that cities like Buenos Aires and Mendoza offer a wide mix of affordable shopping and dining all while remaining a short drive from Chilean wine country.

    The region is well known for its meats and fish, gaining Argentinean steakhouses quite the reputation among connoisseurs - and, in recent years, Mendoza has been gaining considerable international renown for its many wine tours.

    The Colchagua valley on the outskirts of Santiago has also gained acclaim for its own unique wines - including Wine Spectator's 2008 wine of the year, Clos Apalta – and the Chilean fish has become a staple in high-end restaurants the world over.
