Kickoff of the winter celebrations in Aldeanueva de Ebro, La Rioja

La Poda en Viña Herminia

Janurary is the ideal month in La Rioja to rim the vignards. The changing temparatures from low to high create waves of foggy mornings due to change of temperatures during the night. I was lucky to wake up to this phantomatic vision.

Lets count the barrels

Oof, too many to count, let's just drink it...

From here also...

Sit down relax and taste our wine

Great View from Viña Herminia

Sit down, relax and taste our wine...

Waiting for its time to come..

Aging for wine is more recommended then for humans.

Going down…..

Red is the color of wine

Moonrise from within...

I love moon shots, big or small...

Gotcha!

Been chasing this shot for months. Whether rain or clouds or too much wind moving the tripod I have not been able to catch the full moon in the spot I had in mind for months. Just came back from tonights moon hunt…;-)

Esmeraldaaa, where are you?

Moonrise over Notre Dame de Paris

Gotcha Take 2!

Exit

After spending too much time in a bodega, your vision goes somewhat round…;-)

Caught in a spiral….

Four levels of circular staircase. An impressive piece of architecture, in my opinion, which is why I am dedicating so much time to it.

This is the place...

From the main entrance we cross the main room where the barrels are being kept for months, sometime years and on to the spiral staircase...

More Barrels

Barrels stored underground to maintain required temperatures.

More Wine Please...

Early bird get's the worm...

Early rise to catch the sun rising. The clouds only helped make the scene better. But you can only see that in latter shots….

Patience….

Men don't like shoping, but they love cookies!

Storks are back...

Silence please….aaaand action!
