Guests recently gave us a lovely bottle of Cono Sur white wine. I’m no wine connoisseur, but the picture of a bike on the bottle sure grabbed my attention. On the back of the Viognier bottle it says “At Cono Sur we do things the natural way. Everywhere you look you will see bicycles propped up against walls and at the end of rows and vines. The bicycle symbolizes our spirit of innovation, passion, commitment and respect for the environment”. The workers in the vineyards travel about on bikes in order to protect the land where the vines are growing. This Chilean company is doing their bit. As they say on their website; “relaxed, taking their time, enjoying the journey: sometimes returning to bicycle basics is all we need.” I agree.
