Wine for brekky
You gotta love the way the spanish do things... wake up at 10... late breakfast (vino optional), then tapas lunch (wine mandatory), then late dinner (wine is the dinner).
Rioja, the best wine region in Spain. Good selection of 10 yr old wine... ranging from $2 to $10 for the top shelf. We are staying at a private vineyard and probably heard my favourite quote of the trip so far. "Just help yourself to the cellar and we can sort it out when you leave". Lucky the cellar only has 200,000 bottles...
This is where we get to the bit about Australia sucking... 49% tax to bring wine in!!!
In addition to wine, some cracking mountains to climb up as well.
