I knew that we weren’t going to be harvesting today, so I took the opportunity to go see a Coop that I’ve been hearing about.
When you think Coop, you think quaint, a couple of farmers get together and joke and stand in the sun and make 20 cases for themselves.
You would be wrong. I was.
They have 400 clients and use tanks that hold 600,000 liters. By tanks, I mean buildings. They have wine buildings.
In total, they produce 13,000,000 liters a year.
For a long time, Argentina had the 3rd highest wine consumption per capita rate in the world. Those wines come from here.
