When I visited Argentina in 2007, I really only skimmed the surface. Why? Well, Argentina is the second largest country in South America and my visit there was primarily concentrated in the Buenos Aires area. I missed out on a lot, places like Iguazu Falls, Patagonia, and Mendoza (can you say vino?). I’ve had a creative surge of writing posts on experiences from my Argentina trip that I hadn’t blogged about before and thought it was a good idea to devote a Friday Fun Facts to this terrific country.
1.) Argentina is one of the largest producers of wine in the world with almost three quarters of its wineries being located near Mendoza. Malbec is the most planted grape.
