wine tasting

Grande finale

After one week in Mendoza, it’s time to go. We drank some of the best wines, we stayed at the best hotel and although we did not do the best winery lunch in the area, we did befriend the brains of the operation and are still a bit hungover as a result (see the previous post in French).

Making our own Malbec blends at Renacer winery

Tonight, to end on a high note, wer’re off to a local tasting room, Vines of Mendoza, for a tasting with a true rock star of Argentinean wines, Walter Bressia. After doing some barrel tasting and polishing off  a bottle of his fantastic Malbec with his daughter last week at the winery, we can’t wait to meet the man and try a few more bottles!

 

Tomorrow: Cordoba.
