Now began the most important and serious part of our journey – buying wine. Two hours’ drive brought us to the famous vineyards in the valley of the River Duero, where wine had been produced for two thousand years. We drove down La Milla de Oro, the golden route for wine and visited some of the many bodegas that produce high quality wines.
This hard work soon left us feeling peckish and we stopped for a delicious lunch of the local speciality, lechazo, slow roasted baby lamb. The following day brought more wine tasting and another nursery lunch, this time roast baby boar.
