The team spent 3 days in Argentina and 5 days in Chile, seeing as many of our producers and potential new producers as possible.
We tasted approximately 500 wines in total and toured several vineyards. It was very hard work but thoroughly enjoyable. In between travelling and tasting we managed to take some photos:
Here are some photos from the other side of the Andes as we are now in Argentina.
The stunning views of the Andes mountains, early morning:
Trivento winery stainless steel tanks and barrels – this sort of things does excite me!
Our first tasting, having landed in South America:
The winter vines waiting for the winter pruning to cut the vines back and loose all the colour.
Having now returned to the Leeds, we are very excited about the results of the trip landing instore soon. It also seems that the South American winter is still slightly warmer than the British weather we have come back to, lets hope these wines brighten up are day instead!
