last night, tired and lazy, we decided to stay at the hotel's wine bar incidentally called ''wine 365'' because they have 365 chilean wines on their list, one for each day of the year.
decor was hotel like but we sat on a nice little terrace outstide. service is definitely lacking as we waited 1/2 hour to be asked if we wanted wine and another 1/2 to receive them. in any case, i am not sure if this is south america or the hotel, i will let you know later. one thing is sure is that we will not go back unless it's torrential rain outside...
i order a flight - you know i love this concept and so while i was writting my notes, my sweet maria was listening to the couple next to us having a fight...
here are my notes, the carmenère was had by maria:
