The Vines of Mendoza January 13, 2007

Wines of Mendoza

Yesterday we made a great discovery! The wine tasting rooms of an organisation called The Vines Of Mendoza where you can try a selection of the fifty finest “boutique” wines of the region. “Boutique” meaning wines from small wine producers.

They also have a plot of land outside Mendoza where you can buy a small section of between 4 and 12 acres and produce your own wine. You tell them what grapes to grow and what processes to use to produce the wine and they do the rest. This is genius! In case you were wondering what to get me for Christmas……….

As you can see we´re beginning to recover from the trauma of climbing Aconcagua, so we´ve decided to look at moving on at long last. It feels like we´ve been in Mendoza for an age, so it will be great to have a change of scenery. We´ve booked flights about as far south as you can go in South America, to a place called Ushuaia in Tierra Del Fuego. The great thing about this is that there are no mountains!! Or only very low ones at least, nothing more than 1,500m in height. I think I can just about bear it!
