AKA, Vinography visits Argentina. These next two weeks Ruth and I will be traipsing around Argentina, and you get to come along for the ride. We're headed to Buenos Aires, Patagonia, and of course, Mendoza for a little R&R as well as to scope out the scene in what many people are calling the Paris of the Southern Hemisphere. My mouth is already watering at the prospect of big juicy steaks at 30 cents to the dollar and the opportunity to sample top Malbecs from the best wine lists in the country. I've yet to have a Malbec that knocks my socks off, so this trip will settle my mind once and for all.
My hope is to bring you some tantalizing images, some restaurant reviews, and of course, the download on the Mendoza wine scene. Be patient as I negotiate the South American Internet infrastructure.
