Gourmet experience in Argentina

WHEN it comes to great food memories, I find this one hard to beat.

Argentina is a long way to go for a sensational meal, but if you happen to be travelling through South America any time soon, make sure you pay Almacen Del Sur a visit.

This gourmet ‘delicatessen’ is located at the foot of the Andes in Maipu near Mendoza — Argentina’s wine region.

As well as making a whole range of yummy preserves which are exported all over the world, they also have a beautifully restored 19th century farmhouse and a ‘cave gourmet’, where you can kick back and enjoy a spectacular degustation.

Of course, being Argentina, it’s heavy on the carne.

So visit on an empty stomach, and don’t even think about cycling through the wineries afterwards.
