salut!

No winery tour would be complete without sampling the goods, and I, characteristically of someone who rarely drives, over-sampled. I'm going to say that that picture of Dionysus whispered in my ear that I should try everything on offer: white, red, rosé and cava. I wouldn't want to accidentally miss out on the best one, would I? Luckily we went for an absolutely enormous typical Catalan meal in Vilafranca to soak it all up!

As before, these photos were taken at Vallformosa.

@ Ana: I went on the Jose Cuervo tour too this summer. It was also great fun!

Meg! said...

I love this! Wineries seem so lovely and magical to me. They're timeless and seeped in tradition; it makes me so happy. Your outfit is lovely as well, those colors are so fall-like and perfect! <33

As far as Sherlock, I believe series 2 is supposed to be airing next year, either in the late summer or fall? I'm not exactly sure but I do know it'll be next year, and it involves the Hound of the Baskervilles!

you are so pretty and i love your life. yay, wine!

Anthea said...

All of this sounds divine! Of course I love your ourfit very much. I think it is something I'd wear!

I really need to visit a wine farm and do some of my own sampling. I've never done that, even though South Africa is supposed to be the largest wine exporter.

Shanna Maren said...

Seems great and you look great as well!

Emily, Ruby Slipper Traveller said...

@ Anthea: The reason we went to this winery was because I kept dropping hints in South Africa that I'd really like to tour one!

That little pouring thing looks so fun and messy. It's like the classy beer bong or something :P Lovely photos and keep us posted :)

Terri said...

What a cute little jumper you wore! The dusty bottles--wonderful. And the pouring into one's mouth, tricky.

So, what was the best of all you tasted?

Hi Emily! Did you get to stomp the grapes?

Tinfoils Tiaras said...

Great dress and great photos! I would love to go on a tour of a winery!

ana b. said...

Your dress is picture perfect on you! And it would be rude not to taste the wine on a wine tour :)

SG said...

Thanks for the pics. I love the Catalan thing.

Rio said...

I love your plaid dress, perfect for Fall! Also, if you accidentally spilled a little wine, you could possibly avoid a stain! Bonus! ;) Glad you had fun!

WENDY said...

Such a cute outfit, very pretty looking ;)
Love the plaids and the braids!


<3

Raquel said...

oh Emily, your outfit has so "wine-y" colours, you looked perfect for such occasion! hehe. I can see it also matched the bricks in the winery!
also how do you do that to your hair? is it braiding? I wish I could do at least something similar, though I lack the ability and my hair's cooperation (it's so heavy it'd fall down in half an hour), mehh :/

Emily, Ruby Slipper Traveller said...

@NRIGirl
Haha, no, I wish!

Emily, Ruby Slipper Traveller said...

@ Raquel:
Not braids, no, although sometimes I do make small braids. It's just pinned back a bit randomly, and for whatever reason that usually looks nice on my hair (which is pretty uncooperative about every other style)....

Ashley said...

looks like you had a great time, em :)

Although I've been to a winery, I haven't taken the full on tour and seen where it is made. That is really awesome :)

Have you been to the wineries in Ensenada? I had some good wine there :)
