25 Dec 2008 Researching South American wine first hand

I will not be updating my blog for the next several weeks as I will be in South America touring several wine region.  I will try to post interim updates when possible but online access will be random.  When I get back, I will post detailed information about the wines and wineries discovered / visited.

I will be visiting the Equador (Galapagos Islands), Peru, Chile and Argentina.  It will be a great trip with many opportunities to enjoy the local wine and spirit pairings.   I will make an effort to record local prices vs. prices of the wines in the US (assuming the wine is available in the US) to see what the typical importer mark up is.

Have a Wonderful New Year!  I hope you enjoy some lovely sparkling wines on New Year’s Eve to ring in 2009.  I will be ringing in 2009 and celebrating my fabulous wifes 40th birthday from the equator.

  1. Hi. Your site displays incorrectly in Opera, but content excellent! Thanks for your wise words:)

  2. My personal taste in wine varies with the time of year, location and influence of friends. I recently discoverd a fantastic house wine served at a local Italian restaurant that is incredible for the price. One thing that helps any wine is to serve it at the right temperature using the most suitable glasses.
