1WineDude TV Episode 31: Postcard From South America

Vinted on March 28, 2011 binned in 1WineDude TV, on the road

A teaser vid from my recent jaunt to Chile and Argentina, including a polo match at Casa Silva in Chile, Finca Altamira Malbec harvest at Achaval Ferrer in Mendoza, and instruction on the proper (Argentine) methods for preparing Yerba Mate tea at Zuccardi.   Just another day at the office!

    I was in Chile and Argentina back in October, loved Argentina especially but got a little weary of the constant carnival of carnivorous consumption.

    • 1WineDude

      Not me, bro – I don't eat much meat back in the States so was quite happy to binge on it during my stint in the Southern Hemi! :)

  • RichardPF

    I am looking forward to that carnivore paradise when I travel to Argentina this weekend.

    • 1WineDude

      Richard – you won't be disappointed. If the Argentinians do one thing exceptionally well, it's BBQ!

  • Todd - VT Wine Meida

    Carne Asado!
    Also if you have enough Yerba Mate, it will clean your teeth, but that's not the only thing that wll get cleaned out!
    Hope you had a good trip.

      Todd – HA! Yeah, after my stomach bug in Chile, I needed that like I needed a hole in the head… :)

  • Ed vine

    Hi Joe,

    The best medicine for your stomach is a good piece of meat to match the green from the other side.



    • 1WineDude

      Ed – HA! Well, we had plenty of that in S. America…
