Bono, el escurridizo admirador del vino y el paisaje mendocino, volvió a nuestra provincia y lo compartió en la cuenta de Instagram de U2.

Allí subió un video donde se ve el Cordón del Plata y se escucha a Bono describiendo el paisaje y la ubicación y contando que está en Mendoza y del otro lado de esa imponente cordillera nevada está Chile.También hoy Michael Evans, CEO y uno de los fundadores de The Vines, compartió una foto con Bono donde le...

After spending the first four weeks of my year abroad in Buenos Aires, sorting out university stuff and, honestly, just my life in general, I decided to go on my first trip to Mendoza. So I packed up my boyfriend, who arrived from Germany a day before and still battled jetlag (marginally successful), and another friend from Germany, who had indulged the Argentinean lifestyle in Corrientes for two month until then. We left from Buenos Aires on Wednesday evening. (I can confess here and now that I picked my university courses according to my travel schedule and not my interests. But whoever said he was going on a year abroad solely for the study experience is either a liar or a really passionate student. I’m neither.)

Edgardo (Edy) del Popolo and Davi Bonomi took Paz Levinson and I out to see their Monasterio vineyard, high in Gualtallary, in the Uco Valley. Here, at 1500 metres on the ridge of a hill there are some amazing soils, with a very high proportion of active limestone. It’s this combination of extreme altitude plus special soils that make this potentially such a superb site. [Edy and David both have day jobs, but have collaborated to make the remarkable Per Se wines.]

The land is owned by a monastery, and when Edy first saw it he knew that he had to plant a vineyard here. In Gualtallary there are some areas with quite a bit of... (Read More)
