The 12 Days of PXmas Day 3 – A very special bottle of Amontillado

Day 3 sees us looking back at one of the most emotional things we have experienced on our Montilla-Moriles journey to date.

On the last day, Sunday, of the Cata del Vino in April this year, our dear friend Isa had got in touch with us. Manolo Bordallo of Restaurant Sociedad Plateros Maria Auxiliadora has asked if we could meet him at 1.30pm at the Restaurant. We had seen him briefly erlier in the week when we had lunch there but no idea what he had in store for us on arrival. Safe to say we were blown away by what we were about to experience. Manolo had arranged for us to bottle the first bottle Seneca Amontillado Viejisimo from their in house bodeguita.

It is very hard express to express what a huge honour this was for us. It was so very emotional and so very humbling at the same time. In 2019 Laura celebrates a special birthday and safe to say this will be opened to enjoy as part of her celebrations.

A huge thank you to Manolo and his team, they have embraced us and we love visiting them when in Córdoba. We are very much looking forward to our next visit in January 2019.
