08.10.2014 Spanish Wine Pilgrimage
by Jaci Kajfas | Guest Wine Writer, Sommelier & Dining Room Manager at Volterra
Summer is in its peak. It is a time of harvest, growth and a bit of spiritual retreat. We give salutations to Spain with this pilgrimage through our Spanish selections in honor of our many friends that live in Spain and walked the El Camino de Santiago. The El Camino de Santiago or the St. James Trail travels through the northern border Pyrenees mountain range between France and Spain. Travelers walk this path for personal and spiritual growth. Imagine if you were on that journey. You finish your day at St. James in Santiago in the most North Western coastal corner of Spain and begin your journey through the wine regions of Spain. The journey begins in the northwest coastal areas of Spain across the northeast coastal then down to the center of Spain in La Mancha.
