We are making a wine tour to Bodegas Kirios de Adrada and the Real Sitio de San lldefonso in la Granja, on March Saturday 1.

It was very, very cold the last time we visited Bodegas Kirios. It was raining the previous days. With such a situation we did not know if we could visit the vineyards.

And Jesus, the winemaker wisely decided to bring us to a different vineyard than the previous visit. We arrived to the vineyard after walkking trhough a slopy way. It was an amazing vineyard. He made us smell  the soil. Then he told us about Nietzsche, Newton, Einstein. In few seconds the winemaker we had in front  had become a philosopher. Than he opened his heart and told us about his deep believings, and how these way of thinking made him cultivate his vineyards the way he did. I think it will be difficult to forget his speech on the vineyard. With this precedent and now pruning anything may happen during the visit.

If you are considering to come with us on the Winebus, no matter if you are a winelover, a wine guru or if you simply enjoy having different experiences, I am sure you will get greatly impressed by the visit.

As I said what we are going to do in the vineyard is to prune. Pruning is one of the most important actions that a wine maker has to do when taking care of the vineyard during the year. When pruning and how you do it, you are making a lot of decisions about how the vineyard is going to grow and how much fruit is going to give us. And Jesius has decided that we sohould prune in his vineyard following his advice.

But the tour is going to have many more exciting moments:

We are going to have the possibility of watching how Jesus makes the lamb chops just in front of the winery with the branches taken from the vineyard.

When you watch to this activity with a glass of wine in your hands many things may happen in your head, your mouth and your stomach. Things that are difficult to transmit. That has to be experienced. And also to eat them when paired  with the wines of the winery we visit. It becomes a huge experience.

Afterwards we will go to La Granja de san Ildefonso to visit the gardens of the palace and the old quarters of the village. The Palace of la Granja de San Ildefonso was the summer residence of the kings of Spain, since Philippe 5 bought the building to los Jerónimos in 1721.

The most important thing that happen in the Winebus are the stories they tell us. Many of them with a glass of wine in our hands. To visit a place as la Granja de san Ildefonso will become such a thing that will impact all of us.

And with the sunset  we will make the way back to Madrid expecting to have an unforgettable day for all of us.
