On Saturday February 23th we are going to be in Qubel Winery to taste its magnificent wines.
On march 19th I wrote a post “On Saturday in Bodega Qubel. “The story of a pilot who became winemaker and now flies again” (in Spanish)
This trip is going to be something special. We are going to visit the winery after the incredible trip that Carlos has made by a small plane, crossing the Arctic Circle to reach across Canada and Alaska. I hope he will tell us many interesting stories about his trip.
Sometimes I wonder what´s so special about the winemakers and their world. Many of them are romantics and strive to make a living with an activity in which the probabililty of failure is high when the result of much of your work is in the hands of nature.
Is there a better moment to visit a winemaker than doing it after he has done his last dream? And also to drink at the same time his wines, that are fantastic by the way. We will taste the White 2011Maryrit, the Qubel Revelación 2011, and the Qubel Nature. What a level of wines!
We are writing about a very small winery. But at the same time it is very nice, with a lot of charm, and very closed to Madrid. Everybody who visits it gets hacked by its unique style that exudes and its way of doing things with the heart. It is an opportunity you should not miss. More images of Bodedas Gosálbez Orti
We will drink in there 3 of their wines combined with 3 tapas.
Then we would go for tapas in Alcalá de Henares. Cost: $ 10 fixed price. Then we would do a guided tour of Alcala de Henares.
