Happy New Year

 

~

Wishing you a year full of warmth and contentment.

This picture was taken in the cellars of José Maria da Fonseca Winery, Azeitão, Portugal ... where we tasted and bought some truly delightful Moscatel.

 

The spiders are encouraged, because they feast on insects that might damage the barrels and spoil their precious contents - some wines rest and mature for more than 100 years.

Lovely colours, Ellie, and interesting to read about the spiders, too. I wonder if I would appreciate a bottle that old?
EJWilkins: Of that wine, yes, it would be remarkable. They only keep the best
Funny to think of making a wine you won't be around to drink!

Happy New Year

Very interesting! A happy new year to you Ellie: hope to see you soon
Happy New Year to you!!!
What an unusual image well spotted and executed. Happy New Year to you.
Lovely window Ellie. But I think I wouldn't go there - I hate spiders!
I've visited there myself, EJ - fascinating place. For my birthday this year I drank, with friends, a bottle of their 1934!
Thanks and very best wishes to you also Ellie.
