Killing the night in Madrid
How could one represent a wine that we have never tasted? So, a plan was hatched to visit Olmedillo de Roa. It was a long flight to Madrid and jet lag descended upon us like clouds in the valley. The garbage workers in Madrid were on strike and there was trash piled on street corners. The Madrileños never the less went about their lives and Madrid is a lively capital. Hemingway said that nobody goes to bed in Madrid until they have killed the night. That quote takes meaning when you are in Madrid. Despite the exhaustion from travel we attempted to slay the night.
