It’s only 2 weeks now before I set off from Santander in northern Spain on my journey to Mendoza, Argentina.   This is my wonderful prize for winning the Great Wine Capitals guests bloggers contest.  I received my flight tickets and itinerary a few weeks ago giving me the pleasure of knowing well in advance where I was going and the opportunity to look forward to what awaits me there.  Thank you very much Catherine Leparmentier Dayot, Permanent Secretary, Great Wine Capitals Global Network for all your help with the arrangements.
