Another delayed flight.. this time, 2 hours… And we were already quite early for the flight… Again, we have become quite good at wasting time, so not so much of a problem, apart from the fact that I had emailed the hotel to tell them when we would get in…
On the other end, we manage to successfully get money out at the …
... at the first winery. Darn, give me a few sips of wine and I’ll do anything. But, I was determined not to buy any more wine. The shipping is just so expensive. And, Eldon said he had seen these wines at home, so I knew we could purchase them there.
Our third winery (Zuccardi) was really fun. We had an English man and an American woman take us on our tour. There was no rush, and ...

We were first greeted with espresso and candies. After a little introduction to the winery we met Aurora, the chef who would lead our cooking class. For the first part of the class it ...
... road and they turned put to be onions and garlic. I've never seen them growing in such abundance, and their smell was lovely, in fact it made me feel hungry after drinking the wine!

TravelPod Member ReviewsParador del Angel Chacras de Coria
This family run hotel is an absolute stunner. The grounds have beautifully designed luscious gardens with the main garden comprising a nice clean pool with tiled lounge area.
Our room, No. 3, was well sized and had a very lovely bathroom.
The family own several reasonably placid dogs, two mature cats and two kitten under a year old, all of whom roam around the premises available for much love and attention by all guests who appreciate animals.
The breakfast was a combination of the typically South American sweet style spread and the more savoury Continental style breakfast.
Teas, coffees and cold mineral water are all available free of charge throughout the entire day and the WiFi is reliable with a good signal.
When returning to Chacras de Coria (a suburb within the Mendoza province about 45 mins South of Mendoza airport, 120 pesos via taxi), we'll definitely return here to stay!
Discounts are offered on room rates if paying in cash.
