CasaSur boutique hotels in Palermo and Recoleta

To upgrade the guest’s experience in Buenos Aires and to reaffirm the fact that is considered one of the best lodging options in the city, CasaSur added a couple of complementary activities at their Art Recoleta, Palermo and Bellini hotels. 

The CasaSur Experiences propose to “be global, feel local”, discovering the most emblematic corners of Buenos Aires guided by a local historian, learning Tango with professional dancers and tasting different Argentinian wine labels specially selected by their own sommelier.

City tour seeing the highlights of Buenos Aires, every Saturday

A basic and not to be missed on Saturdays: a city tour where guests will be able to see and explore the highlights of the city of Buenos Aires and learn the secret stories of these porteño gems, guided by a local historian. On a van, the tour begins in Recoleta, where we drive a little around and continue through Retiro towards La Boca. In Caminito, there’s a half an hour stop to walk around with the guide, access one of the popular tenement houses, and then go back up to the van to see more of La Boca and San Telmo. Then, another half an hour stop at Plaza de Mayo, to walk around the square and learn about the history of the country, the buildings and the European imprint of the city. There’s a visit to the Cathedral and then, the return to the hotels is driving through the downtown, passing by the famous Obelisco, the Teatro Colón theatre and the 9 de Julio Avenue.

Also, every Wednesday evening customers may take a Tango lesson at CasaSur Recoleta, led by two professional dancers who will teach the basic steps of this popular dance and get participants carried away by such a dramatic and sensual rhythm.

Finally, on Thursday evenings CasaSur treats their guests with a wine tasting at the exclusive cellar in Recoleta, where they will have the chance to taste four labels of Argentinian wines specially selected by the in-house sommelier, and to learn about the history of their origin and vineyards.

TASTING NORTHERN WINE IN SALTA

A special location and terroir makes of this winery the first to harvest in the Calchaquí Valleys.


The winery Estancia Los Cardones is located in Tolombón, province of Salta. This is the northernmost wine-growing area in Argentina, located south of the city of Cafayate at 1,700 masl, located at the top of the eastern slope of the Calchaquí Valleys.

The facility, inaugurated in early 2017, was built entirely of stone extracted from the quarries of the same estate. In fact, if you look at the drawing of the walls in the cellar you can easily have a notion of the soil that makes up the vineyard.

We propose you to visit this particular winery taking a guided tour following the path that makes the grape until it becomes a wine that reflects the unique characteristics of this terroir of Tolombón.

Starting with the vineyards, we will learn everything about this peculiar soil. The terroir of Estancia Los Cardones is unique in the valleys as it is rocky, very shallow, with abundant chipped slate stone on the surface and full of disintegrated mica.

The mostly planted strain is the Malbec, however you can also find lots with Petit Verdot, Grenache, Cabernet and Marsanne.

Another curious fact that makes this winery special is that the orientation of the vineyards, the intense sun and the stony soil favour the earliest maturity of the grape, being the first farm to harvest in all the Calchaquí Valleys.

We will continue into the winery to learn about the production process and end up in the cellar, where we will take in how the wine is aged to become the exquisite final product.

To finish the visit, we will go to the tasting room to taste three wines from the winery and check on our own the characteristic flavor of this special terroir from the north.

The golden clasp, it is possible to enjoy a lunch with empanadas, barbecue and a regional dessert!
