... it. Our glasses were topped up a few times, after which it was then time for our winery tour and tasting!!! We thought the wine at lunch was our tasting!!!
After a (thankfully) short cycle to drop our bikes off we jumped in a minibus to our last stop, a tasting of homemade jams, preserves, chocolate and liquors. Needless to say that when the tour ended and we got back to our apartment we were pretty tipsy and exhausted....i think we passed out at about 7pm! Fantastic day ...
We bid Chile farewell and braved yet another overnight bus to arrive back in Argentina to the sleepy town of Mendoza. This was the first time we had arrived in a place on a Sunday morning, proving the age old rule of never travelling on a Sunday to be true. The city was a ghost town! Sunday's are family days in Argentina, the one day put aside for 'asado' (barbecue) and wine with the family. Therefore we were forced to have a relaxing day, chilling out and catching up on washing ...
... a všichni jsou v dobré náladě. Femimu se nějak zalíbil životní styl vinařů a začínal plánovat co by jsme museli udělat, aby jsme otevřeli vinici v Čechách. Takže bacha… (Poznámka redakce: Už na to zapomněl :))
Utery 27. ledna
Odcházíme z hostelu a na nádraží si tentokrát bereme taxíka. Autobus má typické zpoždění a před námi je 18-ti hodinová cesta… To mam zase radost!
... The wines I tried were young, but nice. I then headed on my bike stopping off past my hostel to deposit my passport to Trapiche, which is apparently imported by Tesco in the UK from the tour guide, I wasn't aware that Tesco imported brand names like that, but feel free to prove me wrong. I absolutely loved the winery, although it wasn't as intimate as the first winery, they had lots of original wine making machinery from the early years, which was really interesting ...
It was holiday Monday in Mendoza and we were still a bit unsure about what we would do today. We really needed to do some more research on how to best explore the Malbec wine area.
We headed out onto the streets in the direction of Anna's Bistro for some breakfast. The streets were deserted and most of the shops were closed although the CATA bus company's ticket office was open so we managed to book a bus trip back to Chile on Wednesday.
