    Mendoza - the wine capital of Argentina


    Mendoza travel podcast – check. Today I met with Fernando Gonzales from Kahuak Tours here in Mendoza to interview him for a podcast about the various wine regions here in Mendoza.

    There are three in all. The best-known of the three is the Maipu region which is really close to the city centre, while the most famous wine is Malbec, a red wine you will see on the wine list of almost every restaurant here in Mendoza.

    I recorded the podcast in one of the vineyards here in Mendoza. As you can see, it was one with a very impressive view of the Andes in the background.

    Hi!I was in Mendoza for the holiday season and I have to say I really had a great time down there!Although it was pretty hot, I took a bike tour around Luján de Cuyo wine region with Mendoza Holidays (http://www.mendozaholidays.com). It was so much fun!We visited Belasco de Baquedano and had a delicious lunch at Ruca Malen. If somebody is thinking about going to Mendoza, don't hesitate to contact this people!

    Great wine at extremely cheap prices! Especially if you go to Don Arturo. Like the majority of the vineyards, it's family owned and their wine is soooooooo delicious! I bought back 4 bottles! Did you also do the olive oil trail? It's really good and interesting; I went to PASRAI, really good! "sigh" Happy trails:)
