  • Meanwhile, still in Argentina…

    And while we were slogging it through bad weather in unknown provinces, Mariano, our colleague from the USA but really from Argentinean descend, was rallying in grand style with friends – a true case of horses for courses right there. Going from winery to winery around Mendoza, in landscapes that were just impossible to describe …
