So I visited Achaval Ferrer winery today, was fantastic. It was the first day of harvest and all hands on deck, picking, sorting and processing the grapes. Met Santiago Achaval himself whose hands were sticky with grapes getting stuck in to the hard work. We had a tour of the winery, given by enologists Julian and Eclio, and then had the pleasure of tasting their wines. In the attached photos I tried a few barrel samples of the 2013 release of their Quimera and the Finca Mirador, still too young but you can tell they will be beautiful. Also tried some of the Finca Bella Vista and Altamira which are drinking now and delicious. The grounds of the winery and the setting were lovely. Overall had a great day and everyone was so welcoming. Hope all is well back at JN.
All the best, Maria-Elena
