Un Ribera por favor

A good way of spending 3 days with some friends, among milions of choices:
Chose a big house in a small town in the middle of nowhere and then meet there with your friends coming from all around the country to enjoy basially 3 things: the menioned friends, food, and wine.
If it happens that the house is in one of the most famous wine-making regions, full of wineries and good traditional restaurants, and you haven't seen the people for some time...better! Ahh, and if those restaurants are by chance, spezialized in cooking "21 day lambs only feed with milk" o sea "lechazo", even better!!
Campaspero (Valladolid). As you can see, a lot of movement in a saturday winter morning.
The same more or less happens at night...

The house & Chesco
I forgot to say at the beggining that if the house you chose has hot water for everyone in the morning, of course, once more, much better!!
After sleeping for 12 hours and still digesting the amount of food from the first night, it was time for the touristic tour around the region. And that means basically to go from one winery to another learnig something about making wine and even more about drinking wine (which is the most interesting part of wine tasting by the way).

Bodegas Emilio Moro (Ribera del Duero)

This big bottle we could not finished it (las cosas ya no son lo que eran)
More wine tasting...

This is what happens when you spend a weekend tasting wine.
I was good to see you all again ! ! !
