Wine Buildings

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.
