Sunday 3 November 2019 - Cuevas de Agua, and some wine tasting


 

 

 
Breakfast was outside Posada La Plaza on a warm morning.

18 of us then gathered in the Plaza with Helen and Millie, whilst 8 more assembled with Mick for a short walk to Competa.

Our 'long' walk saw us rising high above the village to a fire break, then back down via lunch in an olive grove with fine views over the neighbourhood.

Back at the Villa by 1pm.

2 pm - Helen and Millie piped us along the Competa road that we explored yesterday, as far as Bodega, a small winery. A marathon wine tasting session followed. Rosé from the Roma grape, then, from Bodega, a dry Muscatel, then a sweet Muscatel from a later harvest after more sun to sweeten the grapes - the locals favour this one, and it's the King's favourite - then a dark, sweet wine achieved by pressing the raisins. Delicious!
