The winery in Valencia which makes wine in 300 year old amphoras. Each one holds 1000 litres and they have 30 amphoras of 3000 litres. All are buried in the floor of the cave. A special place to visit and they make some great wine. #wine   #Valencia   #holidays   #foodtours   #España   #Spain   #taste

Story
Tagline
Genealogy & Family History Research Coach, Writer, Blogger, In2Genealogy Columnist for Shades of the Departed, & Texas Aggie.
Introduction

As a genealogist, a family historian, a writer, and a blog author, I've been blogging stories about my ancestors since 2009 on Family Stories. Additionally, I've been having epic results combining family history, genealogy, technology, research services, tutorials, and videos on my blog 4YourFamilyStory.com.


When I'm not blogging about dead people, coaching others on how to use technology to find dead people, or researching other people’s dead people, I can usually be found in an antique store searching for letters, post cards, tickets, photos, books, etc. once owned by people who are now dead.
