red red wine

In Mendoza, we set out with a bike through vinyards and olive tree plantations to get a taste of the local produce.

Stopping every now and then along the road we visited a couple of wineries, got a tour with explanations about how the wine is produced and - of course - lots of samples of the locally produced wines.

For lunch we had a picknick in the middle of vines full of grapes (harvesting starts next week!) and shared sandwiches as well as a bottle of Malbec.

The Malbec grape, that was imported from France and adapted extremely well to the desertic conditions in the area around Mendoza, immediately became my favorite.

After several stops, including a very nice terrace restaurant with a great view over the vinyards, we concluded the day with some sweet chocolates and then returned to a good night's rest in the city.
