More Mendoza in the News

Here's an excellent article from the, “On the roof of the wine-growing world” that praises Mendoza. The author’s enthusiasm strikes me as that of someone having just discovered the beauty of Mendoza for the first time.  Also, discusses Mendoza’s draw to the retiree. The Washington Post reports on Argentine wine sales in U.S. restaurants (given our economy, and patrons looking for quality valued wine options) quoting one restaurant owner as saying; "We're selling the hell out of Mendoza". You can read that one here.

It was announced that the world famous Dakar rally will return to Mendoza in 2010. The race will begin and end in Buenos Aires, and although I don’t think the exact route has officially been announced yet, it looks like it will navigate through San Rafael once again- right next to our Mendoza Winery, Algodon Wine Estates.
