And then Helma said, ‘Let’s go and pick up the box of red wine that we ordered in Ahillas.’ So we went to Bodegas Terra D´Art. A ride of 15 kilometers through the mountains.
Collecting wine from Terra D´Art is not a matter of just picking the box. No, that means tasting wine. ‘Have you tried this new one, we have stored it in oak barrels longer than normal …’ And yes: Tasting is Buying.
If any of you ever comes to Chelva I will take you to the Bodega and I´ll introduce you to wonderful world of Terra D’Art. The family wine business with limited production. In everything you see and taste you recognise great dedication and love. A once in a lifetime experience.
We drove back with more wine than we had planned. I said, ‘Once at home this afternoon, I have to write my weekly blog but I do not yet know about what.’ Helma then said: ‘Write about the wine and the Bodega.’ Good idea!
