Peru and Bolivia MW Trip

25 March - 2 April 2018 , 12:00 AM - 12:00 AM  | South America

We are delighted to let you know of an extraordinary Master of Wine trip, being planned for March 2018. It is to Peru and Bolivia, and the lucky and adventurous participants will need to arrive in Lima not later than late afternoon on 25 March 2018, and will be free to leave from there again on 2 April 2018.

It will be by far the most adventurous MW trip ever, and a once in a lifetime opportunity. You will visit the oldest winery in South America (from the 16th century), some of the most authentic vineyards in the world (in Los Cintis in Bolivia), have the opportunity to enjoy two spirits tastings at the highest level (pisco and singani) and will have the very best culinary experiences of both countries. You will visit Lima, Ica Valley, Santa Cruz, Samaipatha, Tarija, Los Cintis and La Paz, and will be anywhere from sea level up to 4,500 meters altitude.

It will not be for the faint-hearted. There will be four flights in the week, two of which be international. The schedule is also relatively relentless, to make sure you experience as much as possible, but it will be absolutely unique!

It is being organized by Cees van Casteren MW, and sponsored by CBI from Holland and Fautapo.

The itinerary is still to be finalised, but a firm outline can be found here. There are places for 12 Members of the Institute.

This trip is now full - to be added to the waiting list, please contact Chloe Thompson.
