La Vendimia 2011- The 2011 Harvest at Juan Carlos Sancha Winery in La Rioja, Spain

In preparation for this year’s harvest, I thought I would show you what I did last year as part of my masters program at University of La Rioja in Logroño, Spain. I had a chance to work with Juan Carlos Sancha at his Ad Libitum Winery in Baños de Río Tobía, La Rioja, Spain. We participated in the 2011 harvest, analysis and watched as the fermentation process began at this artisan winery.

Bet yet…visit them in La Rioja, Spain! Juan Carlos and Marian will take incredible care of you!

Batalla del Vino- Wine Battle of La Rioja, Spain

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CXLVMBCVSC0&hd=1

Here is a taste of what it is like to be at the Batalla del Vino in Haro, Spain.

Every year, the city of Haro celebrates the end of their week of festivals with the Batalla del Vino, the Battle of the wine in San Felices, a mountain top about 7 kilometers from Haro.

Everyone starts the party the night before and the next day hikes up to San Felices to arrive at the 8 am start time of the battle. The rule is to wear white, all white if possible, if not, a white shirt. Everyone battles each other with wine until noon and then heads back into town to run circles around the town square. But at about 11 am, everyone enjoys a traditional Almuerzo or mid-day snack of Caracoles- Snails and Lomo con pimientos- Pork with red peppers! All amazing food and wine!

Enjoy! Perhaps the next June 29th, you can join us in Haro, Spain for this fun and very messy event.
