Monday Morning Photo - Finca de la Pansa

Finca de la Pansa B&B, once a farm house where grapes were dried to make the local Moscatel wine. The local farmsteads had this type of traditional frontage with arches so that the grapes - laid out on large cane mats could be dragged under cover quickly if it rained - yet still be out in the air to ´cure.´ See the video of Finca de la Pansa B&B on YouTube.

Monday Morning Photo - Grape Vines in Cordoba

Having recently discovered yet another local winery to visit I couldn't resist, while passing the town, having a brief nose around. The bodega I knew wouldn't be open but the town Doña Mencia just over the Jaen border into Cordoba province is one I pass every time I head down to Malaga but had never visited. I will be going again, it´s charming and has more than one winery!

Some already harvested vines with the leaves beginning to change colour. This year with heatwave after heatwave the grapes ripened much earlier. Very much looking forward to visiting the winery and sampling some of their award-winning finos, this is the DO Montilla-Moriles area.
