The weather in Madrid today is pure Fall, and it’s lovely.
A chill in the air and a cloudy sky reminding us that summer is over and it’s time to commence with wonderful autumnal events like the grape harvest!
In La Rioja, the grape harvest got off to a slow start this year, commencing about 10 days ago with white grapes and slowly picking up speed. Fortunately, predictions point to both a plentiful and high-quality grape harvest this year, so things in this world famous wine producing region seem to be off to a good start.
If the grape harvest catches you in Logroño, the capital of La Rioja, don’t forget that this city is also a fantastic place for tapa hopping, mixing the delicious flavors of this region with its celebrated wines (por supuesto!), and visits to some of its renowned bodegas.
