FOGON: ASADO EXPERIENCE
Fogón is a new way of living the traditional argentine asado: a closed-door dining experience that explores new ways of serving Argentine Asado classics. While seated at the bar you’ll see, feel and experience different grill cooking techniques, up close and personal. Fogon aims to create a memorable evening for each guest, beyond their regular steakhouse expectations. Every Argentine’s Asado is unique but always includes the best cuts of meat available and fire roasted seasonal vegetables. The chefs have designed the tasting menu to combine new grill techniques with tried and true Argentine recipes that elevate the Asado to new heights.
This wine experience begins departing to Lujan de Cuyo region, 25 km away from Mendoza city, where Luigi Bosca Winery is located; with its architecture it is an icon in the region. Elegant and sober, it combines the winemaking tradition of Mendoza with the highest processing technology and state-of-the-art equipment. Its wines are the Argentine expression of this varietal. We’ll taste different wines in their place of birth, between oak barrels and with the mystique of a real cava; we’ll know their vineyards and the "Via Crucis del Vino", an artistic expression unique in the world. On the south bank of Mendoza, in Agrelo, it located Achaval-Ferrer Boutique Winery, which thanks to its winemaker has created high quality wines in limited items. We’ll visit the winery and we know its philosophy experiencing the wines tasting from the barrels. The marriage between Malbec and Argentine gastronomy becomes a reality in the Dominio del Plata winery, owned by winemaker Susana Balbo, creator of wines such as Crios, Ben Marco and Susana Balbo. In their tasting room, we’ know the aromas and flavors of their Malbec for lunch, in the exclusive restaurant we’ll taste a gourmet menu paired step by step with the wines of the winery. IMPORTANT: winery visits and lunch are subject to changes without previous notice.
A day in a fishermen village: we invite you to live an unforgettable day in a picturesque village by the sea, sailing, fishing your own king crab and cooking it in a family house learning its culinary secrets. Early morning departure on route 3 to Route "J": we will take a gravel road through a dense native forest with peat bogs, to the coast where we take a 1-hour walk through the forest to a busy waterfall. We will make a comforting stop to have a coffee with snacks. Back to the vehicle we went to Puerto Almanza, the southernmost fishing port of Argentina and from there by another gravel road after about 15km we arrived at a small and adorable village dedicated to the artisanal fishing of king crab, crayfish, mussels, cholgas and other typical mollusks in this area. We embark to participate in the fishing of the spider crab; upon return they will teach us how to prepare it in Patagonian style cooked with sea water.
