... booked a table and began to taste their wines (for a small fee). The white wines are made from the Torrrontes grape, tasting like a crisp, dry Muscat - quite refreshing on the hot day. The reds were mostly Malbec or blends of Malbec with Cabernet Sauvignon or Syrah. Apparently Malbec grapes grow very well at these high altitudes of 2000 to 3000 meters (6000 to 9000 feet), thus their predominance in the Andes.
While we were eating our nice lunch of chicken salad (all ...

Cachi is surrounded by many snow capped mountains some over 6000m high. Survived my first experience of high altitude at 3457m Piedro del Molina. We ...
