Tuesday was wine day. We started the day with a tour and tasting at Achaval-Ferrer, one of Argentina’s premier boutique wines. We had an amazing view of the Andes front range and kept pinching ourselves to see if it all was real. The bodega has been open for only 10 years and have earned one of those reputations worthy of their 98 point wines. It’s a tiny place and has a very hands-on approach to wine making. There’s one single corking machine with which they seal all 500-700 bottles/day that pass through. Their terroir malbec wines, especially the Finca Altamira, was outstanding, and we were only given barrel samples! Bought a bottle of the Quimera that we’ll keep for a special meal.
