Stop the Wining

Im in the Bierzo Wine Region. Between Panferrada and Villifranca , foothills of Galician mountains. Bodega wines. Several winery’s right on the Camino path, so of course I had to stop and sample. My favorite Arroya Family Vinyard. If I had room in my pack I would have taken a bottle. But soon to be sold at Leigh Ann’s Coffee House.
Also in this area is massive fields of cherry trees and roses. My day ended, sweet, pickled and rosey. Villafranca history is mostly the battleground for the 1808 Peninsular war between France and Spain. Of course more castles built by Galde. I’ve been in good company since Rananal with my new friends, Nina from NY , and 3 gentlemen. Neil from London, Allen from Dublin and George San Fransisco. We’ve named ourselves the cacabaros and lately causing suffient amounts of trouble. The mountains are over the next rise. Oh boy, wine, wine and more wine. Hey, the sun is shining. The gods are paying attention after all.
