All About Argentina

After my recent journey to Argentina, I have written several posts about my experiences and will be writing more as well.  I found much of interest there and recommend that you visit this wine region and taste their wines. Though their modern wine industry is still relatively young, they have accomplished much in a short time and will only improve with time.

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.

I felt it would be very helpful to my readers to compile the links to these posts in a single place. This post will be that repository, and as such will be constantly updated when I write another article about Argentina. Some of these articles were written before my trip, and others afterwards. The posts will be listed in chronological order, from oldest to newest.

Mendoza: A Positive Initial Impression
Rant: Traveling to Wine Country

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.
