Wednesday, Dec

By Danielle Moss

Earlier this year, Conor and I spent a week in Argentina and aside from a few posts on instagram, I never posted anything on my blog. Reema put a story together for The Everygirl, but today, I’m finally sharing some of my favorite photos, spots, and memories from our first international trip together.

The city is so full of culture, and is a mix of very poor neighborhoods, stop-you-in-your-tracks architecture with both a South American and Parisian flair, incredible food, and some of the best Malbec you’ll ever have. Today I’m talking about... (Read More)

I’ve never eaten so much meat in my life.

Think beautiful blood sausage, succulent sweetbread, crisp chorizo and rib roast tender enough to make your taste buds tango.

I was in Argentina, where the average person consumes at least a pound of meat per day. My appetite was ready to assimilate to the gaucho grilling lifestyle. So for 10 days straight, I... (Read More)

After our first experience with a night bus in South America (and we surprisingly managed to get some sleep) we arrived in a town called La Rioja. The city is situated approximately halfway between Salta and Mendoza, and it is therefore a nice place to spend a few days to break up the long distance. The area around La Rioja is very beautiful and we went on a small excursion with the owner of our hostel, to a place called Digue de los Sauces where we did a small hike up a hill and later we drove to another viewpoint where we sat and enjoyed a beer and the view.

Around 3 hours from La Rioja is the Talampaya national park. It is only possible to visit the park with an organized tour, so we booked a 3 hours tour with a strange 4WD truck/bus. The vehicle had a removable roof, so we could stand up and enjoy the views while driving through the... (Read More)

Mexican-American culinary genius meets top-tier Argentine wines as Chef Aaron Sanchez joins forces with wine brand Terrazas de los Andes for retail activations and other projects in 2016. “[This partnership] was something genuine and organic,” Aaron said. “Once I started having Terrazas and have people engage and inform me about what the wine was about four or five years ago, I started to become a fan.” After rising from fan to brand ambassador, the nationally-acclaimed chef and television star met with members from Terrazas and parent company Moët Hennessey for a (rather fabulous) tour in Mendoza, Argentina. The Daily Meal gained exclusive access as Chef Sanchez tasted, sipped, and explored his way around Terrazas’ estate and the surrounding Mendoza region. Here’s the scoop on what went down on...

The place
Estancia La Bamba de Areco

The location
Located 123 kilometres northwest of Buenos Aires, the Estancia La Bamba is located in a gorgeous rural setting, surrounded by sweeping grass plains, babbling creeks and tree-lined paddocks. In fact, the surrounding countryside looks a lot like county Victoria – green farmland, grain silos, corn and chicken farms. Even eucalypts mixed among elms, firs and other trees. The main difference is... (Read More)

For a wine lover, visiting the source of your affection brings the bottle to life and intensifies the tasting experience. Wines from Argentina have been among my favorites for years so I was delighted when Argen Marketing and Aymará Turismo invited me to visit Argentina and created an excellent itinerary that showcased several of the Mendoza region's finest winemakers. Argen Marketing and Aymara Turismo managed all of the details - all I had to do was arrive ready to sip and savor because Mendoza welcomes visitors with open arms and flowing vino. Over the next few weeks, I'll be sharing highlights from my wine tasting adventures in Mendoza but would like to begin with... (Read More)

October 26 to November 4, 2015

After the 20-hour bus ride we had to take another 2-hour bus to Tupungato.  After we arrived to the dinky bus station of Tupungato we had to find our way to the farm where we would be calling home for the next week and a half.  We walk around trying to find a local map but failed.  We finally figured our way and walked another 45 minutes with our daypacks, backpacks, and food bags.  We arrived 15 minutes after the last ray of light faded into the night sky.  We walked cautiously up the long dirt road to a lit up farmhouse...
