We bailed on doing a tour with one of the companies and instead decided to go for it on our own. The owner of the B&B ended up helping us pick wineries, making reservations for us, and ended up going to the first one with us.
The wine was really good, nothing magnificent in my taste. I’m no expert though. They had this “torrentes” wine that I’ve never heard of in the US. It’s popular here. It smells like sweet wine but tastes quite dry. It’s a wonderful white wine and I fell in love.
Next we hit up Bodega Lagarde. It was another big and popular place.
The place was packed with Argentinian families so we had our own private tasting. The guide was busy and put us in this very fancy room. It was wonderful. He even let us hang out for a long time with the bottles, just talking and drinking.
We ended up staying too long to catch lunch anywhere and got extremely lost just trying to get home.
We ended up buying stuff from a bakery and asking for directions. A wonderful woman ended up giving us a ride back, and then I immediately passed out. We thought two wineries would be too little… We very quickly learned our lesson.
