Meet Ana (or as my friends Will and Andrew have named her, Pachamama). She is the owner of La Finca El Peregrino, an organic farm outside of Mendoza. Will and Andrew had earlier WWOOFed at her farm for a week, so we dropped by her stand at the open-air market to pick up some supplies for a picnic out in Maipu, an area near Mendoza with a concentration of vineyards.

The farm produces what seems to be everything grown under the sun. They make incredible spreads, breads...

...spices, juices, and just plain n'simple raw produce.

At this vineyard, provided with bean-bags, and some shelter from the Argentine sun, we set up a practical buffet with our bounty from the farm.

Simple eating, but with incredible ingredients.

The shaggy dog wanted in on the action, but it seems that he was instead greeted with a kiss and some chilled chardonnay.
