... seem such hospitable people that we find it difficult to believe that anyone would react in that manner but we certainly won't bring it up unless otherwise asked.

For travellers this is great if you bring dollars into the country. We missed the boat and did not learn about this situation until after we arrived. So it's costing us 40% more than all the other travellers and what makes it more challenging is that its muy dificil to find an ATM ...

... can also be made. This can translate into either a stronger wine or a sweet wine (if the fermentation process is halted early)

2- The grape bunches are passed through a de-stemmer machine where they are separated from the stems and leaves. They are then crushed and transferred to the fermentation container which can be a concrete tank or metal cylinder.
