This April 20-28, 2012 we’ll be embarking on our Signature Journey, Southern Cone Sampler, to sip our way across boutique gems and prestigious bodegas in Chile, Mendoza (Argentina), and Uruguay during the magical vendimia, grape harvest. Here’s a photographic essay to showcase this triple header and a sample of the places, characters, foods, experiences, and landscapes during our 9-day adventure. Won’t you join me? There are only a few spots left for an intimate group of wine-loving travelers.
