Three More Photos From Portugal

By In Photographs

While these three photos were taken at the excellent Quinta do Mouro Estate. They are not really wine related to feature on Spittoon so ‘relegated’ down to SpittyExtra.
The first is the lock to the barrel cellar, the second a chair in the corner of the tasting room (which I so longed to plonk my fat arse in but was petrified of dozing off) while the third photo is an external view of the wine making hall – you can just make out the stainless steel tanks. I hesitated to include this photo, ’cause it aint that good…
Incidentally an article describing the train trip down to Lisbon has just been published on Palate Press – By Train To Portugal: The European Wine Bloggers Conference

    I love the lock photo, you can imagine the great joy of knowing it was unlocked and the joys of the cellar were within reach!

    Love those first 2 pics – especially the “painterly” quality of the second one…

    LOVING the pictures… I wish I had half your talent… actually, I guess a quarter would probably do nicely! what an eye you have for the beautiful, not to speak of the photography skills i am completely lacking!
