After a morning bus ride through the Andes from Valparaiso I arrived in Mendoza, Argentina. Mendoza is a beautiful tree lined city that is famous for its wine and parrilla. Mendoza is dry and hot but irrigation from the surrounding mountains keeps the city leafy and green.
We went on a popular biking wine tour that leaves you jubilant, inebriated, and exhausted.
For about 20 pesos ($5 USD) you get a flight of wines a brief tour of the facilities, plus a seat in the shade atop a gorgeous vineyeard.
