Anybody who signs up for wines and adventures in Argentina has got to be fun traveler...and did we have fun traveling together! Following are pics of our group, guides and a few friends we encountered along the way...

Since Anne and I are leading our upcoming Wines and Adventures in Argentina trip with our friends from Arista Wine Cellars in Edmonds, WA, I figure we better get in the know.

I can see why…       The profile description under the bottle written by the wine steward read that it’s best as a refreshing drink in summer (which is happening right now in Argentina) over ice with lime or lemon. I rushed home to give it a taste. Wow! It’s a Sauvignon Blanc (50 percent) and Malvasia (50 percent) from Mendoza, Argentina. New Age is very light-bodied,...
