Artigas Blanc 2016
Garnatxa Blanca 70%, Pedro Ximénez 20%, Macabeu 10%
Again, I miss you Spain, and of course La Vinya del Senyor. Am so happy that I took a chance with this lovely white wine, and hope one day to sit at the bar again and clink glasses with my S.O. In the past, it was often so easy to take these little moments for granted. If you’re with your family or friends, hug them and appreciate that they are there.

Mostly Cariñena, with Syrah, Garnacha, and a smidge of Cabernet Sauvignon
This week wore me down. No matter how far I travel by glass, I have no idea when I will travel again. Spain just enacted a 2 week quarantine on travelers from abroad. Today, I’m going to go back to one of my favorite places in the world, La Vinya del Senyor in Barcelona. Dec. 11, 2019, I had a glass of this lovely wine (and many others), along with some great food. My memories are of a deep dark red with a cherry velvet glove. Would love to get my hands on one again, and sit at that tiny bar, or climb the spiral stairs to the crow’s nest with the enchanting window with the view of Basilica de Santa Maria del Mar. Also wouldn’t mind going shopping around the corner at Lurdes Bergada & Syngman Cucala. Even in a pandemic, a girl can still dream.
