I was very fortunate this weekend in that I was invited out to lunch and these were the two wines we shared.

I found this poor bat in the bodega, upstairs where I store boxes, crates, bottles, etc. They fly around at night in the patio and also inside the bodega, eating up insects, including those tiny fruit-flies that appear during fermentation!

Some terrible photos of the the last 30 mins of our Vinos Ambiz tasting last Saturday!

Pic: Happy bottle-washing victim helper form last year. You too can enjoy the experience. Come to Morata de Tajuña tommorow!

Sorry, these photos are terrible, as there was only one 60W light-bulb in the barrel-room, and also my mobile is a bit outdated! In fact it was so dark, that I was filling the bottles by sound!!! Eventually, after many spillages and overflows I could stop the flow of wine at exactly the right level for the cork!

Soaking the labels off wine bottles so as to reuse them.

We had a “fino” before lunch.  Not sure if it was fortified or not, though!!! #FortifiedFriday
