With the MICHELIN Guide set to launch in Argentina later this year, starting in the City of Buenos Aires and Mendoza, there has never been a better time to sample Argentina’s world-class food, wine, beer and traditional delights. From the bounty of Mendoza’s renowned vineyards to the family-style Bodegóns located across Argentina’s vibrant capital, there are plenty of ways for travellers to immerse themselves in the local culture and experience the unique tastes and flavours of this South American country in 2024.
