O. Fournier Winery

O. Fournier Winery

Located in the emergent Uco Valley, south of Mendoza, O.Fournier is the combination of different individual factors working together, linking architecture with functionality and winemaking process in a sustainable and effective way. Tourists love this place, thanks to the wonderful experience they can have in this amazing winery. Visitors can enjoy tastings and have lunch at URBAN, the impressive restaurant of the winery.

I have always found that the option "wine bath" at the spa was going too far. One can drink wine, cook with wine, write about wine, dream about wine or make wine, but bathing in wine? It is excessive, and especially wasteful.

Except that ....

CARLOS GARDEL (1890 – 1935)

He was a french-argentine singer, songwriter, composer and actor: the most prominent figure in the history of tango. Gardel's baritone voice and the dramatic phrasing of his lyrics made masterpieces of his hundreds of tango recordings. Together with lyricist and long-time collaborator Alfredo Le Pera, Gardel wrote several classic tangos.

For many, Gardel embodies the soul of the tango style.

 

CAREER OF THE "ZORZAL CRIOLLO"

Gardel began his singing career in bars and at private parties.

Once he succeeded in Argentina, he went on tour through Uruguay, Chile, Brazil, Puerto Rico, Venezuela and Colombia, as well as making appearances in Paris, New York, Barcelona and Madrid.

As his popularity grew, he made a number of films for Paramount in France and the U.S.

Gardel died in an airplane crash at the pinnacle of his career, becoming an archetypal tragic hero in Latin America.

Many years after his “golden era” the Gardel legacy continues to enchant with the passion, mistery and soul of the tango masterpieces. Even Hollywood pays tribute in several movies.
