Fogon Restaurant Bodega Lagarde
07 March 2019
"This is a place inspired by the long lasting lunches people from Mendoza grew up with. Typical Mendoza meals with no time frame and surrounded by nature, homemade food and wine."
What a great vision and goal for a restaurant, the sort of attitude we love at It's Wine Time where we want to supply wines that make it easy to spend hours sitting back and letting the day unfold.
We were lucky enough to visit Bodega Lagarde in Mendoza and it really is a special place, one of the oldest vineyards in Argentina with Fogon, its onsite restaurant, one of the best in Mendoza It would have to be to match the quality of the wines.
Fogon, situated in a 19th century manor house, nestling among the trees with the vineyard as a backdrop, is a very cool place. The vision of Sofia Pescarmona, who has taken this old style Bodega, grafted on modern techniques and business practices to create an environment where you really can forget time.

Took delivery, from a well-known Scottish online butcher, of the lamb for our Easter Sunday lunch. It's my favourite meal of the year, the kids are all home from the big smoke with lots of stories and with a few pals thrown in too, it will be a quiet lunch for 14.

It's official. Wednesday evening at 6.53pm is when most of us feel confident enough of making it through to the weekend to pull off our ties, kick off our shoes and pour ourselves a glass of wine.
