Thank you and congratulations to all the forumites!
I am sorry I will not be able to make it to Haro. I hear they make very good and traditional Rioja wine there. ;>)
One of these days I am going to have to come to Spain. Maybe Manuel will let me ride with him in the future.
I could never forget Manuel in my plans. He is a top guy!
I hope to make my way to Spain and Rioja one day. When I do, I will be looking forward to a few Verema offlines with fine Spanish wines. I’ll bring the Port and Rhone’s. ;>)
... close to Barcelona if possible... perhaps you’d be interested in Priorat, but I promise Penedès is better :^P...
I’m joking, if you like the trecking in the mountains and a terrific view (and wines!), Priorat is where you have to go. In Penedès you have Montserrat, the holy Catalan mountain (worth to visit anyway I tell you). And of course great wines...
However, it will be easy for me meet you in Barcelona...
On the other hand (this is not sure), may be I have to go to Cardiff soon... I’ll let you know if the occasion arises.
