The ultimate exploration of food, wine and culture with Chef Lorena Garcia
April 6 - 13, 2024
One exclusive departure to sip and savor Argentina's wine country and capital city
8 Days, 7 Nights
The best of Mendoza and Uco Valley wine country, and mesmerizing Buenos Aires
A perfectly butchered steak sizzles as it slowly roasts over a flame in the Andean open air. Just outside of your Buenos Aires palacio, the gentle clatter of small plates and the aroma of chorizo drizzled with chimichurri perfumes the air, beckoning you to the fabled barrio of San Telmo for the best street food of your life. From an exclusive tasting of the finest Malbecs in Mendoza to a gaucho-style asado deep in the Andes foothills, the sumptuous rhythms of Argentina have a way of capturing both your heart and soul. Now, as street musicians strike up a heartfelt Zamba, you think about the night ahead—a rooftop cocktail bar overlooking the city, followed by a multi-course dinner expertly paired with Argentina’s finest wines, the perfect celebration of the cultural riches of Buenos Aires and Mendoza.
You’re in the company of iconic chef Lorena Garcia, the mastermind behind CHICA—the Latin-infused hotspots on both Las Vegas’s Restaurant Row and Miami’s MiMo district—and celebrity chef who’s graced the stage of Good Morning America and the pages of People magazine. She’s traveled extensively in Argentina, and she just can’t wait to show us her Buenos Aires.
If you have a taste for world-class wine, good food and vibrant culture, join us as we explore, dine and drink in the rich history and landscapes, from Mendoza to Uco Valley to the mesmerizing neighborhoods of Buenos Aires.
3 Reasons to Travel with Lorena Garcia
Lorena Garcia has been cooking since she was a child in Venezuela. Since then—inspired by the flavors and vibrant traditions of South American food culture—she's taken her talent around the globe. From starting out at the Ritz Carlton in Paris to her major appearance in CNN's documentary, "Latinos in America," Lorena has worked her way into the culinary spotlight, and we can't wait to dine, cook and celebrate with her in Argentina.
Outside of the Venetian, alongside portraits of Thomas Keller and Emeril Lagasse, you'll see Lorena's photograph too. She's the first woman chef on the hotel's“Wall of Culinary Titans,” and she's only just getting started.
Big Chef, Little Chef
No matter how busy Lorena gets, she never forgets her local community. Exhibit A is her non-profit, Big Chef, Little Chef, which combats obesity and helps children and their families take control of their eating habits and, ultimately, their lives.
An Honorary Argentine
Though Lorena grew up in Venezuela, she's made many culinary pilgrimages to Argentina. She even lived for months at a time in the Puerto Madero neighborhood in Buenos Aires, and we can't wait to see Argentina through the lens of her experience.

Wake to modern elegance in the heart of Buenos Aires. The Hotel Madero is just steps away from haute cuisine and its sleek charm is a perfect example of the neighborhood's design resurgence.
