It will be no surprise to those of you who know me well to see that I chose to highlight the article in the travel section of today’s New York Times exploring Mendoza, Argentina. You can find the article here: http://travel.nytimes.com/2012/04/08/travel/36-hours-in-mendoza-argentina.html?src=me&ref=travel. Just reading the article made me crave a glass of Malbec and a lomito (a traditional beef tenderloin sandwich on a crusty roll with a slice of tomato – super delicious!). I have not had the pleasure of traveling to Mendoza yet, although I have spent quite a bit of time travelling throughout Argentina, as my husband is originally from Buenos Aires. Mendoza is absolutely on the top of my list based on its reputation for great wine and spectacular mountain scenery.
Have any of you been to Mendoza? Do you have any must-see’s or must-do’s for me or for others who might be travelling there in the future? Any travel trips or books to read before you go? Do you have a favorite wine that you discovered in Mendoza? Personally, I am crazy about Terrazas Malbec, which you can find in most stores in the United States. In fact, I think I will go pour myself a glass right now!
