Be welcomed by your friendly hosts and Argentine "asador" chef. Sip on a welcome cocktail and sit at the beautiful bar that surrounds the custom made grill in the middle of the room.

The chef will explain the different cuts of meat that you will try from the menu, how the dishes are prepared and provide a short history of Asado grill. Make your own Chimichurri sauce, a traditional condiment present in all steakhouses and Asados. While seated near the fire, you can enjoy watching all the food preparations and may ask any questions. Argentine Asado is all about being relaxed, enjoying good food and wine in good company. Start with several small plates of traditional dishes such as empanada, choripan and morcipan, grilled provolone cheese and several surprises. Then, try a typical grilled pork cut, and three cuts of beef served in different ways. The dinner is completed with coffee and a branded dulce de leche pancake served with Patagonian berries.

Feria de Mataderos Guided Tour with Lunch

7. Feria de Mataderos Guided Tour with Lunch

This tour, apart from being the symbol of rural tradition in Buenos Aires City, transports us to the gaucho culture, the emblematic character of Argentinean history. This fair was born 20 years ago in the area where the old slaughterhouses of the city were located, and is today the meeting point for people from the interior of our country who are deeply-rooted to their costumes of their provinces and for those who, living in this city, like to spend a while surrounded of handcrafts, typical foods and folkloric music and dances. Also, the neighborhood was declared, in 1991, as “neighborhood of the Argentinean Gaucho”. We begin the tour near midday at your hotel and we drive to the fair. There you will have some minutes at your own disposal to visit the old archway of the market and then we will visit the “Museo Criollo de los Corrales”. This museum is a big sample of rural objects and will give us an idea of how gauchos lived in the Pampas, through clothing, tools and everyday objects. It will also show us how in our country the stockbreeding industry started to develop, from the period when Indians ruled the pampas until Argentina became in one of the main exporter and a world leader in meats. We’ll see on the following rooms weapons, knives, carriages, animals, paintings and even the famous “quincho” or “ranch”, the meeting point for the countryside meals. Later we’ll go to lunch to the fair stalls. We’ll taste some typical foods as empanadas for lunch accompanied by a drink included in the tour. After that you will have more time to visit the stalls where we will find, apart from the handcrafts mentioned above, sweets, instruments, albums, clothes, accessories and more objects of everyday use. We will continue visiting the stands of handicrafts: accessories, everyday objects and musical instruments. Both the products and the regional food (jams, liquors, alfajores, cheeses) are available at a much cheaper price than in other places in the city of Buenos Aires. The gastronomy and handicrafts of the Mataderos Fair are perfectly complemented by the music and folkloric dances that take place in the place, since the Fair is also known for its art festivals and demonstrations of gaucho skills. On special occasions, you can watch horse races and even participate in tango lessons!

I had a great day. I was the only person on the tour and Marcelo was a star in keeping me company. He was very knowledgeable, we discussed history, economy, people, wine. The wine yard itself is young, so not commercialized yet which in my opinion gives a more authentic experience. The food was amazing as well. Overall a great experience and I would highly recommend.

What a fun afternoon! Our guide Marcelo was so knowledgeable. I learned a ton from him on our drive from Buenos Aires city to Bodega Gamboa. The winery tour and tasting was great. The meal was absolutely incredible! The food seemed to never end and each dish was delicious, especially paired with their wines.

Fabulous time. Unbelievable food and so much fun. Met a group of fellow travellers and laughed all night while me made empenadas and ate perfectly cooked steak and lovely wines. The team that look after you are exceptional.

Wonderf tour. The food amd wine were amazing. Non stop food. Everything they fed us was fantastic. The explanation of the wine making and tasting was fabulous. Our guide Sabrina was a star. So friendly and informative.
