A Second Spanish Wine Tasting Video – Rosé on a Mountain Top!

As Ryan and I were enjoying a “lazy” Sunday morning filled with articles to be written, ideas to be churned and coffee to be drank, we decided that the day was too beautiful to be spent inside, preferring a quick jaunt up a mountain with a bottle of Salvador Poveda. Made with Monastrell grapes and containing only 12 percent alcohol, it was the perfect addition to a much needed lunch stop in the nature reserve of Sant Llorenç del Munt on top of the Serra de l’Obac mountain chain. We later tried the wine at dinner, allowing it to both chill and rest after hours of being rattled about, but the consensus was basically the same: it is a wine best drank for the experience and not for a rating.

Cheers,
Gabriella and Ryan
