Winemakers from VB in Spain visiting all week for events & tastings. Here we are after decadent lunch at Treadwell, Port Dalhousie, Niagara.

VB Is short for Viticultores de Barros. The winery is in Ribera del Guadiana, Extremadura, Spain. Piedad and Maria Angeles handle their exports and work closely with head winemaker Francisco Esteves. We have a whirlwind week ahead. – Posted using
