Mendoza, probably best known for be the largest winemaking district in Latin America. It also offers a beautiful landscape, located at the foot of the Andes.
Thats why i wanted to visit this area. A guided tour at a winery in combination with excellent food, especially the Argentinian meat, said to be the best in the world.
It was very interesting to see the whole process from grapes to bottle, but the 5 dishes lunch with wine tasting was unbeatable!
This is one of few pictures i have from this winery. One of their friendly staff checking the bouquet from a premium wine.

For sure I could share a glass of Malbec with you since this is Mendoza
in Salta I'd have taken some Torrontes !
A good shot here with the view on the vineyards and the lady enjoying her glass and well located in the compo, almost as a silhouette
best regards, have a nice evening

nice the snapshot with the one of the staff to enjoy the premium wine leaning on the column.I like the beautiful play of the light with the shadows as the good timing of the shot.Well done.

Very nice and sunny view from Argentina. I like those large stone columns that divide the frame. We have a good view of the vineyards, along with the play of shadow and light. That woman with the wine glass is perfect, too. She really completes the scene.

Wine, woman and...
Good colors and sharpness.
I like light and shadow.

Jag antar att damen med vinglaset inte bara råkade stå där, utan att hon lät sig regisseras. Väl placerad är hon i alla fall, och utblicken mot vingården mellan de tre pelarna är verkligen lockande. Helt klart en bättre plats att vara på än Stockholm så här års. En snyggt komponerad bild med fint snett motljus.

Not much to beat an excellent meal and accompanying wine, especially when taken in the country of origin. This is a well composed shot, the stone pillars diving your shot naturally, the lady adding elegance and interest, all set against the vineyards in sunlight. There is just a hint of envy on my part!
My warm regards,

En bra ide att bjuda på ett glas vin till varje bild man skriver om på TE... Det ser hur som helst mycket angenämt ut att njuta av ett rött vin i detta gröna landskap. Pelarna bidrar ju till kompositionen också.

I am no great wine knower, but I have Argentine wine drunk and these was superb.
Perspective and depth are very nice
Excellent composition, nice presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.

Although the most famous wine of Mendoza is Malbec, Tannat is my favorite!
Lovely photo, simply enticing to visit Mendoza. I can imagine a combination of Argentine beef stack and Tannat! Unfortunately, too far from me!

Hi Boa,it seems a pic taken in Tuscany,one of the most famous place for the quality of its wine.A great idea this composition,i like the original perspective and the magnificent scenery on the winehards in background!Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hello Boa - this could be an advertisement for the vineyard, it has such a peaceful and, yes, elegant feel to it. Beautiful framing and perfect placement of the woman enjoying a glass in front of the vines themselves.
adramad (37345) 2014-03-18 11:46
Superb perspective of these vast vineyards, losing itself in the mist of the mountains, which gives great DOF, the girl sipping a glass of wine, it's a great compliment, by the backlight of those great columns.
A magnificent brightness management, sharpness also
Very well seen and well taken.
nikkitta (14618) 2014-03-18 14:34
Quite agree with the title, people klike and enjoy visiting vinegards in Mendoza, sdo you know which one is it?
Well composed capture with archs as frame and the girl tasting a glass of Malbec, I suppose
Congrats and well done

Un belle composition, bon point de vue avec les ouvertures entre les piliers et la dame au verre dans le coin, qui profite du soleil.
Didi (56307) 2014-03-21 9:45
Interesting original scene of smelling wine
It's summer in this country, very funny for me to see green fields in february :)
Good lights ambiance of the scene
Cricri (105331) 2014-03-21 12:08
Un cadrage original de ces piliers offrant une vue imprenable sur les vignes, belle présence de la dame dégustant le vin, bon jeu ombre et de lumière, un pays merveilleux a voir

On a map of Santiago, Chile and in its environment, Mendoza is seen lying a few hours away in Argentina, just over a mountain pass. It is also described as being in the foothills of Aconcagua, the tallest mountain in South America. I like this shot with the young woman sipping from wine glass — an elegant scene, a serene scene, and with a view of the mighty Andes.
npecanhuk (64290) 2014-03-23 9:50
I'll shortly visit Mendoza in April, as part of a one week trip to Santiago de Chile! It'll be the first time in that Argentine City, but probably will want to go back later on!
This picture is really attractive and it makes even more anxious to go there!
TFS - congrats,
RhodieIke (11740) 2014-03-23 12:01

Good evening and happy start to the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

Wish you a nice week

Very creative presentation of this wine worker against the vineyard. Good use of the pillars to divide the scene. Sharp details and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
romanaa (7948) 2014-04-23 13:31
The columns provide an interesting framing and divide the composition. An eye catcher.
