Question 1: What’s your best ‘Recuerdo’ at the vines?
My surprise birthday parties. For the first, and my first birthday in Mendoza, Bryan Driscoll rented the ‘Tren de Alegria’ usually used for children in the park. We used it as our party bus go to every bar in Mendoza. For the second, my 40th birthday, the team transformed our parking lot into an amazing party complete with a mechanical bull. All testaments to our credo that ‘Nada es Imposible’.
Question 2: What’s the best way to spend a day in Mendoza?
Hands down, playing polo at Tunuyan Polo Club with an asado at the vineyards and a night staying at the cabins at The Vines’ vineyards afterwards.
