I’m on my way home now after an enjoyable couple of days in Madrid. Last night we went out for some fun. We started off in the Mercado de San Miguel, which is an enjoyable place to browse, full of places to get something to drink, or a bite to eat. It was pretty busy, but not impossibly so.
Then, after some food, it was time for more gin and tonic. This time I started off with a Hendricks, and this was followed by a Tanqueray Rangpur. They’d run out of fever tree tonic though, so it had to be Schweppes.
Today was the second day of the ML Wines competition that I mentioned in yesterday’s blog. It was interesting to see which 39 wines (in three flights of 13 – coinoculated, sequential inoculation, and wooded wines) we’d selected yesterday. There were some really nice wines and I am looking forward to seeing the results.
This was followed with a big lunch in the Casino de Madrid. It’s such a lovely setting, with it’s overly ornate decoration and great natural light.
