In addition to growing some of the world’s best Malbec grapes, Mendoza is also a thermal area. Today we took advantage and spent our morning at the spa.

Multiple pools of varying temperatures
The scenic spa is built alongside the Mendoza River
A fun feature of the hot spring is the thermal mud station
Dave had to wash his hands off to get the phone to take the photo.
As the mud dries it exfoliates. Our skin feels all soft and clean now.

After a few hours of water therapy, we headed off to Bodega Fogón for another winery lunch. Fogón is one of the oldest vineyards in Mendoza, established in 1897. We were supposed to eat on their outdoor patio under lovely weeping willows, but alas, it started raining as we pulled up, so they accommodated us in their beautiful indoor space.

Today’s amazing lunch.
We would imagine playing after a bottle or two would be hard.
Nice Malbec and three different kinds of bread plus a gluten free bread for Dave.

We’ve said before that portions here are huge. We split an appy and a steak for lunch and still had trouble finishing it all. Another beautifully presented meal!

We will check the half-case of wine on our international flights home – until then, Argentinian airlines allow passengers to carry on 6 bottles each!

Tomorrow we head into the mountains to hike. It snowed up there today so we will bring our gloves, toques and warm jackets.
