We have actually visited this vineyard as well. Very enjoyable and would recommend for anyone who loves wine to make it a goal to visit Mendoza. Stunning vistas, awesome food, and all at reasonable prices.
In the least let’s hope to be able to travel again sometime soon to wherever our favorite places be…
Well, in a dream world of all possibilities, I want to drive there in a 4WD truck with camper (or a 4WD Mercedes chassis mini-motorhome). But this is almost impossible, and that was before COVID.
Almost 30 years ago, I remember this book about two guys going from the tip of South America up to Alaska in a truck outfitted with expedition gear. I’d just driven to Alaska (from the US) but any thought of the South/Central American part seemed way out-of-reach.
Apparently there was (still is) an un-roaded section called the Darien Gap where you just can’t drive. I’m not sure if that’s still the case (but there is a Wiki page on it so it must be real!). At the time of that book, anyway, you had to book a barge or ferry to get around that.
Not to mention so many countries to go through, each with their own political events going on, tons of Visas and permits to obtain. Plus, many cases where paramilitary groups would come out with machine guns. And back then that wasn’t in the US. Welcome to 2020.
@pmarin It sounds like something I would have liked to do, but noticed a long time ago the political climate change in many countries, where before you could just pass, be friendly, and receive the same in return.
Been in many places where they had nothing, yet invited you in and shared what they had. When you responded, in kind, you got the kind of a smile that let you know that you had made a friend for life, even though you’d likely never cross paths again.
