We lunched in the heart of the Colchagua Valley at the Ristorante Vino Bello which is on the Laura Hartwig Vineyard:
This photo is not really a photo of me, (though it obviously is), but rather of the horseshoes on the wall over my shoulders. Those are the symbols for the toilets and this is the only time on our trip where I got it totally wrong – and I hadn’t even had anything to drink then!. I only wanted to wash my hands before eating so went to the one I *thought* was the ladies…..and yes, I was wrong. No-one was in there so I started soaping my hands when a waiter came rushing in all breathless and making shooing motions; ‘out, out’ . I finished washing & drying my hands with him standing guard at the door looking very annoyed with me! I found it really funny but I did feel a little embarrassed walking back to our table with people looking at me. .
After lunch we headed towards the B&B I had booked and came across this little market.
The B&B Bellavista de Colchagua. Our room was in a unit of 2 beside the pool rather than in the main house; it was called the Pinot Noir room and it was perfect!
That evening we drove down the winding road to a restaurant in the middle of no-where but highly recommended by the B&B owner Oriana. We were still stuffed from lunch so ate lightly but thoroughly enjoyed the little connection to lunch in the Laura Hartwig wine.
