Seeing How The Other Hemisphere Lives

© Carneros Wine Alliance

As you know, this site is all about the celebration of Argentine wine – and it always will be. But I’ve been invited to visit friends in Napa Valley next week.

I think it will be fascinating after four trips to Mendoza, to compare and contrast what the California wine community and tasting experience is like.

I already have some built-in assumptions about what I’ll find – too expensive, too jammy – so it will be very interesting to see what reality is.

Unfortunately, the weather will be quite cold and rainy, but there should be ample red wine to warm things up! Look for frequent posts on Facebook from the trip.
