Initiation Wine Tasting Course at Hacienda Señorío de Nevada
"Understanding wine is Science, drinking it is Health and knowing how to talk about it is Art". These words by Alejandro Rodriguez make a good opening gambit to this wine tasting course for beginners to take place at the Winery Señorío de Nevada on 18th. October.

Described by the bodegas the aim of the wine tasting course is to:-
"Discover the secrets of wine, from its elaboration and ageing process to the knowledge, to the acknowledgement, through our senses, of its multiple bouquets, textures and flavours. A complete range of wines from our Cellar are tasted and discussed.

It is well known that Andalusia lost its red wine tradition. It was believed, according to an ancient and popular legend, that the high temperature conditions during the Andalusian summers, were not suitable for this wine variety to reach good quality levels. However, they forgot that Andalusia is a region with a rich and varied geography. In the province of Granada the snow-capped Sierra Nevada mountains together with the Mediterranean Sea create a unique micro-climate that we can find in the valleys of South-Western Spain.

Our 21-hectare wine cellar extends to the limits of the natural and historical region of La Alpujarra, which lies approximately 650 meters above the sea level. This high-mountain slaty soil presents a large quantity of minerals and enjoys this marvellous micro-climate, due to the combination of Sierra Nevada's climatic factors, the sea and the three rivers that shape this land's layout. Due to this particular orography, during the grape maturity season temperatures fluctuate between 35 °C during the day and 12 ºC or 14 °C at night. That's why the grape harvest takes place in October, after a long and rain-free maturing period, blessed with a radiant sun....."

The winery is only 15 minutes from Restábal.

Gotta Love the Aussie Tennis Open! 
 
Here's another of my fave Australian Open pics.

A very happy Ana Ivanovic signing autographs after defeating Serena Williams in Round 4 of this year's Aus Open. I had a fab courtside seat so was really close for this pic.
