My First Overseas Wine Trip

My work is sending me to Chile and Argentina in March of next year. The tour is sponsored by TGIC Imports, which was named "Importer of the Year" by Wine Enthusiast magazine.
Needless to say, I'm beside myself. Me, and a group of 30 or so wine professionals from around the country, will fly to Santiago, Chile, where we will spend 1/2 the week touring the wineries of Chile, then we will fly to Buenos Aires and then to Mendoza, where we will spend the second half of the week touring Mendoza wineries.
I can't wait to eat alot, drink alot, see another culture, buy an Alpaca scarf, and eat an Argentinian cow.
