The Grape Harvest, El Molar, Spain
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.
