Most of you have already heard about or tasted the wine of Rioja. It has a long history going back to the Middle Ages and it is very popular in Spain. This summer, I spend a week in the regions where the vineyards grow, visited several wineries, learned about how they produce the wine, enjoyed the food, the scenery, and visited marvellous monuments.

El verano trae mucho calor y ganas de beber cosas refrescantes. La horchata es una de las bebidas preferidas en verano. En Valencia tiene hasta un día para conmemorarla.

Así, aprovecho la ocasión para escribir algo sobre esta deliciosa bebida hecha con chufas que ha formado parte de muchas de las meriendas de mi infancia y juventud en los meses de verano.
