“Our trip through Chile and Argentina with you was truly memorable.
You’ve done a great job at establishing relationships in the wine
industry as well as the hospitality industry – and it all shows in the
finished product that was our trip. We thoroughly enjoyed everywhere we
went, the first class establishments where we stayed, and the experience
of the whole trip (not to mention all we ate and drank!). We’ve been a
lot of places and on a lot of trips – this truly will be remembered as
one of our more fun experiences as well as a great educational
experience in the Chilean/Argentine wine industry – and our now much
better understanding of wine as well as the industry. Thanks.”

brought our trip to what seemed like the perfect conclusion.”

Argentina a wonderful experience! We enjoyed the food, wine,
