Mendoza Wine Tour | Matías Managó | firstname.lastname@example.org | +549-2615085881 | www.mendozawinetour.com.ar
For most of my life, I’ve lived in Buenos Aires and worked in Business Administration. Yet, after being stuck in the same routine for so long, I decided it was time to leave behind my life in Buenos Aires and seek out a new adventure. About seven years ago, my wife moved to Mendoza where I had chosen to pursue my calling as a university professor. Not only did I find my new profession, but also my new passion.
Through living in Argentina’s wine capital, I have become absolutely captured by its wine culture and how wine is so central to local life. I love learning everything about wine, from the ritual of its production to food and wine pairings to the importance and traditions behind the annual harvest festival. After immersing myself in the world of Mendoza wines, I decided to extend my classroom beyond the university and start teaching all I had learned about viticulture. Four years ago, I started leading wine tours so I could share with other people my love of Mendoza’s wines. For me, this region’s wine culture is constantly transforming, creating a dynamic and exciting place to visit. Let me teach you all about it; after all, I am a professor.
I love traveling and learning from the locals everywhere I go. For example, once I was in Aruba and met a local fisherman. He taught me how to prepare and cook fish the local way. Not only did the fish taste delicious, but it really reaffirmed my belief that meeting locals while you travel can teach you so much. Yes, I learned how to cook a fish, but I also learned about Aruba’s local traditions and cultures. In my opinion, meeting people is the best way to intellectually grow, learn about yourself, and to become an overall more patient and happy person.
I’m definitely a family man, so I would love to take a trip with my wife and kids across Europe. My dream is to rent a motorhome so that we could drive across the country and take our time really immersing ourselves in the culture of each place. For me, Europe is like an open book waiting for my family and me to discover. I would especially love to go to Spain and Italy because these two countries have been so crucial to the foundations of Argentina.
