Recently Vina Florida has become available at retail here in Cuenca. (The Wine Guy secured his at the Co-opera). It's at a higher price than what you will pay through the vendor turnstile at the Monasterio del Carmen de la Ascuncion but it is still affordable, particularly by Ecuadorian standards. If you are looking for a sweet treat to sip at sunset or to share with your dinner guests, you may want to try a bottle of Vina Florida. It may satisfy those who have moved here and miss their former availability of late harvest wines.
While Suzanne and I normally prefer bold, dry red wine wines, we did enjoy straying over to the sweeter side in trying this locally available wine. It never hurts to try something new when you are traveling "juntos en el camino de la vida".
