Following Wine Tasting Lunch; and Claire-Marie Trio Latin Jazz Concert; Sept. 2018

Colin : October 24, 2018 7:07 pm : Recommendations
I wanted to thank you for the lovely wine pairing, we are loving the wines we bought (especially my Viognier, my favourite at the moment).  Dessert wine being saved for an appropriate Sunday lunch when it is cold enough to have that here.

We also enjoyed the concert at the Lavender Gardens, so please keep us updated.

Following Part Thirteen of my blog, A Season in the Life of a Vine!

Colin : September 7, 2018 11:17 am : Recommendations

Thanks for the blog Colin that’s very interesting and the fact the white grapes have ripened behind the reds this year is also interesting.
Now the grapes are safe indoors and the land is enjoying some well needed rain.

Best regards

Talks a good game?

Colin Harkness – you write as you speak, with enthusiasm as well as (dare I say it?) well rooted knowledge. This signature attribute of engaging dialogue is one of the many things that continues to draw us in to the nucleus of your inner wine guru, which you manage to channel so effortlessly. That, and your willingness keep the glass full!

Hi Colin
We so enjoyed your latest blog and agree with you entirely these professional
Wine growers certainly earn their money. They say on stage you should never
Work with children. It seems to earn a consistent living it can be hazardous
To rely on any kind of a crop! So many forces come into play. No rain at the crucial
Growing time. Too much or destructive rain. Mildews or diseases and in America
And some other countries, plagues of locust! Thank heavens some of us are
Completely overtaken by the love of working in the fresh air. Our saviours, those
Who feed us so well.
Best regards

One of the guests who was here last June and did the wine tasting with you, liked Milagro so much so she has booked her 9 friends again this year, and one of the things that she really wanted to experience again was you and your skill about wine!

Gratefully received – re latest Blog!

Colin : June 3, 2018 2:15 pm : Recommendations

Hi Colin

Very interesting blog about the season in the life of a vine. Rather beautifully describes the wonders that nature provides giving us the end pleasure of  a glass full of delicious fruit. Great for its aroma and the taste buds.

Once those flowers start becoming fruit we will all need to strip out some leaf cover to allow air and sunshine to finish the job. The Romans who realised Wine could halt scurvy on the old galleons would be amazed now to see how the World has fallen in love with this liquid refreshment.

Well done Colin very interesting.

Best regards

In response to my 50 Great Cavas post!

Colin : December 11, 2017 9:30 pm : Recommendations
Hello Colin,

We have met at some of your wine tastings and we are just winter visitors to Javea. I do enjoy your regular emails and videos. Your latest on top 50 cavas was very interesting. Here in the UK we get inundated with (cheap, ordinary) prosecco at the expense of cava, which is much better in value and taste, in my view. I am particularly taken by Mas Codina cavas and I would be grateful if you could tell me if and where it it may be available locally in or around Javea.

Seasonal greetings to you and Claire.
