Foram inúmeros km's em 17 dias. Foram 3 países, 15 cidades, 9 hotéis. Avião, carro, trem, metrô. Neve, chuva, friozão e friozinho. Cidade, castelo, montanha, vilarejo, vinícolas. Teve vinho tinto, branco, do porto, cava, ginja, licor. Teve restaurantes sofisticados e fast-food. Teve acordar cedo, mas também teve dormir até tarde. Assim foi nossa lua de mel, do nosso jeito, com um pouco do tudo que o mundo pode nos oferecer.
Obrigado meu amor, você é a minha melhor compania! ❤
This pretty ‘lil mama came thruuu! Adelshiem was the first to bottle Seven Springs as a single vineyard; ‘93 was one of the first few vintages. Why do we care? Because it’s some damn delicious history. Also, because it’s not what I expected: Savory cherries and super herbaceous, it tasted more like a current vintage Canary Island wine than what I imagined a 25 year old “new world” Pinot to taste like. OK Oregon... I see you flexin’.
I want to be a Mendocino. 🍷
Our visit to Bodega DiamAndes took our breath away. You can’t really tell, but our view was of the Andes, decorated with snow caps, & embellished with vineyards along the foothills. Our tasting experience consisted of a Malbec Rosé, Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon, & a Malbec-Cabernet blend 😍
Stay tuned for photos of inside the winery. ⚗️
I like big reds & I cannot lie. 🍷
One of our stops today, Finca Decero, translated “from zero.” When the property was bought, the owners started from scratch, from zero. This might be my favorite group of reds I have ever hung out with. I couldn’t choose which one I enjoyed the most, the Malbec or their single varietal Petit Verdot or their blend Amano (“by hand”) which had a small percentage of Tannat. The minerality found in Mendoza’s wine is one of memorable status. These wines aren’t just fruit-forward, they offer voluptuous bodies & intense complexities. Well worth the slow fifteen minute drive on a dirt road in order to reach this little paradise, a must-see & -sip in Mendoza, Argentina. 🌎💫
Have you tried this?? @19crimeswine has an amazing app, and a damn good wine to entertain your senses. The idea is to collect as many labels as you can, and experience their story.
I think it’s genius.
But I would love to hear what your favorite Australian wines are!
