Stories from South America

There's so much to this fascinating part of the world that every time I visit I learn so much more, not just about its wines, but about the people and their very different way of life.

Food features highly on many a buying trip, and in South America it's hard to avoid the asado or barbecue - preparing it is quite an art, as you'll discover. The other great pleasure is picking up on personal stories, and we hear about how one wine came into being from its creator, Roberto de la Mota.
