We continue with our summer program that is giving us much satisfaction.

We are certain that with the heat of summer everybody prefers doing afternoon and evening activities. That is why  we change our program on the months of July and August. We call it the program, the Winebus charming nights.

As always, we visit first a winery with a lot of attractive, to drink its wines, and then to visit a town in “fiestas”. We do not forget that we are the country that knows is specialist in making the best “Fiestas” of the world.

It is also wonderful to visit a vineyard plenty of leaves and fruit. No long later there will be the Harvest. Every season has its own charm.

And there we are, enjoying on this case with Bodegas kirios. On this winery we feel as we were at home.

And there is nothing like being with somebody who has a speech that comes out of the heart. That happens to Jesu Lazaro, the winemaker. You might have listened to him in the past but it always look a renewsed speach.  Jesus is a endearing guy with a great culture. And he knows so much about what he talks that he does not want and can not tell the story the same way. He talks about wines, vineyards, philosophy, history. Actually, what he does is a master class.

Their wines are fantastic. Not only the red of DO Ribera, but also the Acrata wines (red, rosé and white)with which people get amazed on that wines. His red wines of Ribera are of course excellent, but you expect that kowing you are in Ribera. The surprise comes when you taste the wines he makes following no external rules (With grenache, albillo and pirules grapes). From there you do not get out the same way you got in. Something changes in you.

Ya con el cuerpo más entonado podemos dirigirnos a Aranda de Duero en uno de sus días más bonitos del año. Porque hablamos de Aranda de Duero que es una de las capitales del mundo del vino. Donde se vive el mundo el vino como en pocos sitios.

By the way the landscapoes that we will see from the vineyards make you the wish of stopping  and begin too paint.

After having breeded our soul  we will go to Aranda de Duero in one of its most attractive days of the year. During the fiesta de las Peñas when many of their underground caves are open to be visited.

Aranda de Duero was one of the capitals of the world of wine. Where they live on wine as few places in the world.

There were 300 wineries on the sixteenth century. Nearly the whole population erned their living upon wine. The way to preserve the wine during the whole year was to dig on the urderground and this way they could keep  it stable at 17 degrees celsius

In the middle of last centuy most of them to be operative as they could not compete in a wolrd that had already changed.

Now these caves are owned by las Peñas of Aranda and they will be open when we go that Saturday.

We will have tapas on the pedestrian area and enjoy of an spectacle of a town in “fiestas”

And after that we will go back to Madrid “feliz como una perdiz” that means very, very happy.
