It was quite an unusual tour, but many tours we are doing are becoming more and more unusual, wich is wonderful. I am still surprised by the variety in the trips.
On this occasion we would go to two very young projects. Two projects that started in the midst of the crisis.
A great example for other entrepreneurs.
By one side Finca Las Caraballas (We will talk in other post about the other project), in Medina del Campo. A winery that when you intend to visit they propose you to go exclusively to the vineyard, because, as they say, everything that should be seen happens in there
I have heard hundreds of times how important things happen in the vineyard, but at the end, when we get into the winery, part of this kind of message changes a little bit.
But as we visit more and more wineries we realize that more and wonderful wines are made in wineries with facilities in which everything to be said is on their wines and some stories behind. To enjoy such kind of visits you have to be with your senses very open, because its particularity, personality and sense of taste may be missed by a cursory glance.
On the visit to Finca las Caraballas they spoke of how far they had gone to reconstruct the environment.
Elias accompanies us on our visit to the vineyard. And the most attractive was that the first middle hour we nearly did not talk about wine or vineyards but environment recovery, birds, soil recovery. We felt at this moment as if we were the protagonists of a wild life tv program.
The vineyard had an exceptional look (and it was a very sunny day) Everything was ok. Starting to do the pruning. What we were seeing was shoking and exciting but a question arises whether there is already a response of the nature to such an effort.
And the answer is this:
Don’t you listen and feel the fauna and flora in this vinetard? Do you want me to take you to a conventional now so that you perceive the difference?
We feel much better respecting and recovering habitat. And we think , and so the market have said to us that the grapes of our wines taste again to real grapes, and so happens to our wines that taste again like the old wines of Rueda.
We didn´t do anything special. Just what our fathers did to care for and maintain the vineyards. We are not exceptional. It is the crazy world we live in, that makes us exceptional, and every day more people are aware of this philosophy.
We did a wine tasting in the vineyard, and we realized firsthand that Las Caraballas wine is something special, that tastes like Rueda wines used to taste. A fantastic experience.
And I am one more. One more who enjoys with tomatoes tasting to true tomatoes and grapes to true grapes, and that birds and animals of all kind can be there. And I also realize that my body asks me to eat not only tastier but healthier. And I would like for my children to have a setting as beautiful and attractive as I´ve lived.
For all of this I wish Finca Las Caraballas a great success and to become an example to be followed. An example of how to make a living doing a better world!
