Sitting at home with Tick-bite fever I have the time to go through a lot of old photos. I look at photos from my visit to Chile and Argentina, the great people we met and the amazing wines we drank. I look at the beautiful landscapes and breathtaking vineyards.

This is truly an unique piece of earth to grow wine grapes, and this reflects in the wines. The Grenache of Priorat is of the most sought after in the world, and walking amongst these vineyards, some 80 years + old, you can sense the hardship these vines endure each year to grow and ripen their (small) yield to produce the top wines we can enjoy each year…
