A nice venue to see how the local pisco is made Jul 28, 2009
A nice place to see how they make pisco. You can get a tour around the vineyards, the grape presses, the riping bottles, the distillery and, of course, you can taste the product in all its variaties. Besides tasting the stuff, you can also buy different Peruvian products, from the different sorts of pisco and love wine to delicious sweets.

The location is very nice, in the small Peruvian village called Guadalupe, that is (now) part of the city of Ica, with many many flowers growing just about everywhere.

And in spite of the fact that I find the pisco horrible (naturally, if you never drink alcohol and now get stuff of 42% pure...), I find it very interesting to see, and (as I gather from the others in de group), it's good quality.

All in all, a nice place to make s stop if you're passing by, definitely worth the while if you like the strong stuff.

Lunch and a whole lot of pisco Sep 20, 2009
We stopped at this bodega in a little village near Ica to have lunch and to see how pisco is made.

First we had a tour around the wine presses and the stone carafs in which the pisco fermentsand were informed of the production process.

Afterwards we had a tasting of different types of pisco, which were expected to be bought afterwards. It was a lot of fun tasting, but the spirit is not really my cup of tea.

For lunch I had a ham and cheese toast and french fries which were a reasonable value for money.

De langste dag
Het was een wel erg korte nacht, maar toch voel ik me vrij uitgeslapen. Door de jetlag lag ik al te woelen nog voor de wake-up call kwam. Beneden in de lobby zijn er koffie en koekjes voorzien om toc…Ica maar onderweg stoppen we nog bij een bodega (El Catador of "de proever") waar we alles over de pisco…
