Wine Review: Mendoza to Buenos Aires to San Antonio de Areco (The Final Chapter of an Amazing Trip)

We flew from Mendoza to Buenos Aires. It was about an hour and a half flight. Luckily, there were no border crossings on this part of the trip.

Did Buenos Aires meet our expectations? Absolutely and then some! It was hard not to appreciate and enjoy this complex, energetic, seductive city with over three million inhabitants who are called portenos [people of the port] because most have immigrant origins from Italy, Spain, and France. The elegance of
Europe and the spirit of South America are combined to make up one fabulous city. The European culture, the wide boulevards, theaters, museums, art galleries, distinct neighborhoods, and outdoor cafes have earned Buenos Aires the well-deserved nickname of “the Paris of South America.”
