Currently the price for the wine tasting is $52 and that includes 5 glasses of limited production, boutique Argentine wines paired with 5 uniquely Argentine tapas.  Wines can include the fruity Malbec, Bonarda and Argentina’s flagship white wine, Torrontes. Tastings are normally in English and a tasting can be done any time during the day or evening.  Your ship might have an organized tour to Anuva Wines or you can make arrangements directly with the company – check their website (AnuvaWines.com).

The 90-minute wine tasting is a great way to spend some extra time in port, especially if you are in Buenos Aires before or after your cruise, which is quite common for this busy turnaround port.

Wine is poured by the half-glass, with plenty of refills for anyone who wants them, but also no pressure to finish any glass. Private tastings can be arranged for people to people who only want to sample a specific variety, such as reds or Malbecs.

Anuva Wines was founded by American Expat, Dan Karlin, who arrived in Buenos Aires in 2003. His second night in this port city, he fell in love with an Argentine woman, Lourdes Silvera. Together, they fell in love with the country’s unique and undiscovered new world wines. They married and started a family. The couple spent the next few years scouring the winemaking regions of Mendoza and Salta, the heart of the wine country in Argentina, searching for small, family-owned wineries with delicious new flavors to offer. The couple wanted to create a way to share these limited bottle production wines with people from all over the world, and Anuva Wines was born.
