Leyenda del Paramo: a Spanish Winery

September 25, 2017

If you follow blogs you may have seen many "fall bucket lists" around lately which include activities such as apple picking or baking homemade pies. One thing that seems to be missing from them is the wine harvest. In my opinion fall is the best time to visit wineries, the leaves are turning into beautiful golden tones and the grapes are ripe.

Wine tourism is really popular in Spain and many wineries will even let you participate in the wine harvest with festivals that consist of related activities like picking bunches of this delicious fruit and grape-stomping. Such is the case of Leyenda del Paramo, a young winery located in the north of Spain that holds this event every year. This place is very special for me because I've seen its birth and growth. Between my time as an au-pair in California and becoming an ESL teacher there's a gap of three years and a half. That's when I worked for Leyenda del Paramo. 

I try my best to attend the Wine Harvest Festival every year because it's so much fun. After the boxes are full of grapes they are taken back to the winery where the grape-stomping takes place. Then we have lunch at the winery (this year the weather was so good that we had lunch outside). After recharging the batteries there's a tour around the premises. This year there was a new event at the end of the day which was an 8 km race around the vineyard.leyenda del paramo vendimia wine harvest vineyard fashion blogger

Pink Abercrombie & Fitch shirt and cardigan
Zara embroidered jeans (last seen here) - (Spain/US)

Let me give you some advice: wear comfy shoes to a winery like cute sneakers or booties. I keep seeing bloggers walking around vineyards in shoes that don't look very appropriate. In fact, the other day I saw photos of a girl in high heels. I know the images look idyllic but they should add one of those "don't try this at home" warnings. #keepitreal
