mendoza wine toursFinding worthwhile, well-researched travel destination information on the web can be a frustrating and time-sucking endeavor. In most cases you’ll spend half the time and learn twice as much by just buying a good guidebook. There are exceptions now and then, however, which brings me to this great series of posts on Mendoza from the Global Nomad blog at Planeteye: Dining at the wineries of Mendoza.

If you’ve landed on my post here after September ’08, just go to the September archives of that blog and scroll back from September 17. There are great roundups of the restaurant scene and meals you can have at local wineries. At someone who has dined at a few of them myself, I’d say it’s an accurate and comprehensive view of the Mendoza, Argentina wine and dine scene. Our own article, Touring the best of Mendoza wine country hits a few of the same highlights, including an impressive meal at the Club Tapiz restaurant and a tasting at Nieto Senetiner.
