A photoblog from Rob's recent visit to Spain & Madeira
MADRID; Bernabeleva in the Gredos & a visit to Madrid's only craft distillery, Santamanía.
Here you can start to get an idea of the local forest or scrub. This is part of the Bernabeleva estate and is the kind of landscape - covered in wild thyme, lavender, juniper, native orchids, etc. - that surrounds the vineyards. The perfume of these plants hangs cool and resinous in the air - the same aromas and garrigue-like freshness can be found in the wines of Bernabeleva.
