Wine purchasing

by mar1223 Online Now Dec 13, 2008 at 3:44 PM

OK. This may be a silly question to most. But,we will be going on a cruise ship to Antarctica on the 18th out of Ushuaia. We enjoy drinking wine and would like to take some good Argentinian wines with us on the trip.

Does anyone know if there is a good wine store in Ushuaia where we can purchase good Argentinian wines?

If not, we'll probably bring them down from Buenos Airies - but with all the luggage we currently have it will be tough.

Please let me know by sending a direct email. (Your ignorant yankee friend :-)

    Plenty of good wine stores on the main street in Ushuaia. You can also treat yourself with a lot of good Antarctica sovereigns in this southern most city. We were there during xmas 08 on our way to the Antarctic expedition and loved the place.

    Note that the weather changes very fast. You may want to carry warm cloting and a water proof jacket even in a clear weather - it may change any time. This city has only 30/40 sunny days in a year.

    have fun; take a tot of pictures. Good luck
