I spent a day cycling around different wineries in Mendoza, Argentina's wine capital, producing 85% of its countries wine. Taste testing wine, chocolate, olives spreads and other different variates of alcohol. My favorite and Miwa´s very intelligent choice, duce del leche liquor with a hint of almonds. The worse, Absinth.... Oh the wine was good also.
I wanted to visit a farm that produces the wine Tapiz.
It was very convenient returning to the hostel to consume free wine. The owner fills a barrel most nights for everyone in the hostel to enjoy, which is permanently located on the kitchen bench. The natural progression from there, hitting town with 2 Israeli's that where staying in the hostel. Returning back to the hostel at 7am, true Argentina style.
Worst moment; the taxi driver pulling out his massive knife to make us pay, talk about a misunderstanding... that moment was "slightly" disappointing..... his license plate number imprinted in my memory bank, HEF225. Not sure exaclty what he was on...
