What a great day yesterday.
I hit 5 wineries in Rioja.
The wine was so good, I had trouble not swallowing it.
Normally I spit if I have to ride but at the last winery, it was wine drinking and not wine tasting any more.
The nice gal pouring the wine wasn't helping matters by pouring me more than a taste of each wine including the Grand Reserva from 1994.
She offered to let me use her spare room so I didn't have to drive.
That also meant I could take a well deserved shower.
We met some of her friends for a couple of drinks at a bar in town.
To my surprise, she picked up the tab before I even saw the bill.
And we went out later to dinner to a nice restaurant and I figured I would grab the bill for that but we almost got in a wrestling match over the bill and she had me pinned for a three count.
And just when I didn't think anyone could be nicer, she forced upon me a bottle of the 1994 grand reserva to take with me.
If I didnt have a gf already, I think I would have asked her to marry me
It is people like this that make my trip so special and make the world a better place
Muchas Gracias mi amiga nueva.
