First to Review

There's a lot of good wine available in Spain and at very reasonable prices both inside a restaurant and out. During our recent trip to the Iberian Peninsula, Gayle and I enjoyed finding a wine shop, chatting with store staff, and buying a few bottles for later hotel relaxation.

Vinos Castro is located on the Camino de Santiago (aka the Way of St. James) and within a block from the Cathedral of Santo Domingo de la Calzada and a nice Parador. We were actually staying at the other Parador in Town (Bernardo Fresneda), but its all an easy walk.

Did I mention that this is the Rioja region? That means lots of good reds in the general categories of young (Joven), older (Crianza), and Reserva. We picked out a nice Reserva for about $18 and added a nice White and Rose for good measure. The guy working the counter knew his wine well, even though our Spanish and his English weren't perfect. Gayle loved the conversation (at her self-described fluency of a bright 4 year old - lots of present tense). And when we were done, it was all boxed up nicely for travel and just hanging out.
