Travel anticipation: we knew a grand adventure was about to happen. Traveling drives you into storytelling, to recall and visualize the fantastic uniqueness of what you experience on the (wine) road.
The red, ochre and yellow ancestral terroirs of Sicily gave Cos winery something so special that they decided to handle the grapes naturally. Cos lets the grapes ferment spontaneously on the skins -using indigenous yeasts- in terracotta amphorae buried in the ground. The clay of the of 440 litres amphorae is porous like oak but the advantage with clay is that it gives no taste or flavour to the wine, while the wine still breathes.
Châteauneuf-du-Pape, awarded a "Remarkable Site for Taste" by the French government, is bordered by the Rhône River. Its famous vineyards with large and small pebbles are found in a landscape of slopes and plateaus.
Domecq sherries are quietly aged in traditional American oak barrels at the oldest surviving Almacenista bodega named after Pilar Aranda y Latorre. The building is perfect for the west winds that bring moisture to the flor.
An important part of the travel experience are travel stories. An beautiful image may work as a snapshot, but in the eyes of many not always convey a true impression of a travel experience. We hope our stories have a quiet power to evoke a place and time, are a reminder of the way travel can open the mind and the heart.
Some will tell us that we are mad travellers, we don’t care. We just hope you’ll gently absorb the essence of the Winejus experience, that our stories and insights create a resonance, give you ideas or something to long for.
