These meals are accompanied Argentine wines especially chosen to compliment the dishes presented and are from the Mendoza wine region.
Ducks over decoys are hunted in the morning in nearby ponds, lakes and slews. Waders are suggested, though hunters will be shooting from dry “bucket” blinds, pit blinds or platform-pallets.
