I was in Valle de Guadalupe yesterday and went to a Vendimia event, the art show at Jardín Las Veredas, San Antonio de las Minas. Beautiful gardens and a great mix of art. Next weekend I look forward to a day iof wine tasting in the Valle, dinner at Laja and, on Sunday, the Concurso de Paellas. 80+ paella competitors, music, the shade of oaks and dancing. Did I mention the wine, What a great party.
