You could get quality wine in Argentina for just a few dollars. While we were living in Buenos Aires, we were buying whatever was cheap and haven’t tried yet. The majority of the bottles we bought were from Mendoza so once we got there, we had to see where the wine came from. GetYourGuide offered us a wine tour which was very educational for Stephanie and I. We found that the best is not always the more expensive one. It’s really whatever tastes good to me. Now I don’t feel as obligated to pay more for the expensive wine. I wonder then if it’s okay to go to a party with two dollar bottle of wine and just claim it tastes great for me and whip out my Mendoza facts. I’d make less friends but more wine for me.
Our guide was a food and wine genius from France. I want to be like him. You have the option of going to many of the bodega’s on your own by bicycle but the inside tours and lessons they gave us along the way made the whole thing worth it.
For the next few days we were in Mendoza, we must’ve had at least a bottle a day. We left one of the bodega’s with a bottle that we loved for about $15USD (we splurged).
Thank you GetYourGuide for providing us a comped tour..
