Harvest in Mendoza

As anyone who has set foot in Argentina’s wine capital knows, Mendocinos know how to throw a party. They also know how to throw watermelons and other locally grown agricultural products. These foodstuffs are tossed from floats during parades, usually by pretty girls who are vying for the Harvest Queen title.

It is also the season for unwitting wine tourists to fall in love with Mendoza and decide they want to take a closer look at buying a little slice of vino paradise.

It’s probably why my book “The Malbec Diaries” sells so well this time of year.

Cheers to all you dreamers.
