This morning we flew from Salta to Mendoza – another quick but bumpy flight. Wine marketing starts right at the airport with a sign that reads ‘welcome wine lovers’. We picked up our nice new rental car (Fernanda the Fiat) and headed to our hotel.
Casa de Glebinias is a small property with a few guesthouses set within an amazing garden.
Since it is Mendoza and we do have that nice patio, we had to stop at a wine shop and buy a bottle. We then relaxed and enjoyed the birds and smelled the roses. It was really fun to watch hawks, doves and parakeets all collect bits of branches and leaves for their nests.
We walked to El Mercadito restaurant and enjoyed a good meal. Portions here are so huge – we are learning to share entrees!
Tomorrow we will head out to a few local wineries for some tastings!
