The Grape Harvest, El Molar, Spain

September 24, 2012

This is September, during the grape harvest.

El Molar is pretty nice – it has some bodegas up on the top of the hill where they make bad wine.

If you’re offended at me calling it bad, go up and try it.

Then we’ll talk.

Anyway, I enjoy going, and I enjoy drinking the bad wine. Because sometimes you just gotta be old-school and drink homemade booze.

About the Author Daniel

How did I end up in Spain? Why am I still here almost 20 years later? Excellent questions. With no good answer... Anyway, at some point I became a blogger, bestselling author and contributor to Lonely Planet. So there's that. Drop me a line, I'm happy to hear from you.
