All About Argentina
My journey was part of a journalist trip, sponsored by Winebow, a wine importer and distributor who represents several producers in Argentina, though about half the wineries we visited were not Winebow clients. We stayed in the city of Mendoza and our intinerary included winery visits to Zuccardi, Vistalba, Renacer, Catena, Nieto, Alma Negra, and Alta Vista. We met winemakers, toured vineyards, tasted wines from the barrel, did comparative tastings, drank wines with delicious food, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

And though the following post is not connected to my trip to Argentina, it is still very relevant concerning the wines of that region and should be of interest.
