For polo enthusiasts coming to Mendoza, you’re in luck. Wines & Polo and Bodegas Escoriheula Gascón have just put together a package that brings out the mallets. “Wine & Polo Day” includes a polo class on the grounds at Club de Campo, a wine tasting, and if you’re game, a mellow round of bike polo afterwards.
After you’ve worked up a sweat, you’ll be treated to a tasting of five of their top wines back at their historic winery just minutes from the center of Mendoza. Feel free to play some bike polo or the Argentine games of bowls, or just take in another glass of vino. And if you’re feeling peckish, the famous restaurant, Francis Mallman, is right next door.
The only place in Argentina to offer such a package, Wines & Polo will be happy to show you both their passions together for the first time. Contact Wines & Polo for more info: http://www.winespolo.com/
