Riding to the Ridge where the Wine Commences

After tying up some loose ends in Buenos Aires this coming week, and with apologies to Cole Porter, I'll be heading west to Mendoza and its wine country for a shorter time than I'd like, before crossing the Andes into Chile (where, fortunately, wineries are also abundant). On both sides of the cordillera, it's the fall harvest season, the best time to visit with wine in mind.

For those of you unfamiliar with Argentina's wine country, or who'd like to catch up with the latest there, I've just published a new article on wine resorts in both Mendoza and the northernwestern province of Salta. After clicking the link, you'll have to leaf through the magazine to page 40.

Over the next few weeks, I'll be adding some entries on Chilean wineries and other destinations in the country, including possibly Easter Island (though that trip may be postponed until November).
