From Chiloe the bus drove onto a ferry to cross to the mainland.We drove down the road.
The ferry line is owned by the same company at the bus line!
The inside was very plain compared to the German Baroque churches.
We decided to take the bus along the lake to what the locals call 'The upmarket lakeside town'called Frutillar Bajo. Apparently as the Germans became wealthy they built summer houses in this town. It remains as German today as it was in the early 1900's.
In the evening we went to a rather expensive restaurant and drank some fabulous wine made from the Carmenere grape. It was thought to be extinct until a German wine maker did some tests on what he thought was a Merlot vine - to his surprise he found it was the lost vine. The vine is flourishing in Chile and they are making some fabulous wines with it. Let's hope we will be able to get some in Europe - we shall have to talk about it in The Wine Society.
