Next up in line in the Córdobes spring calendar after the Cata del Vino: Córdoba’s Annual April Wine Festival is the ‘Cruces de Mayo’. I think of this as a sort of ‘pre-feria‘, which is the culmination of the festivals spread across April and May each year.
The first notable thing about the Cata del Vino de Montilla Moriles in Córdoba is that there is no red wine!!! <Insert shocked face emoji here!>
Montilla-Moriles is a Spanish D.O of wine (denominación de origen) found in the villages of the province of Córdoba. Here, they produce sweet dessert wines very similar to sherry, known generally as fino. It is a taste I am still becoming accustomed to after almost three years of living here but I guess it’s as with all wines that you have to take time to find the ones you like. Regardless, I’m a red girl and always will be!

Imagine being able to drink wine without a hangover.
Well, believe it or not, that once unimaginable wish is actually becoming true with the rise of natural wines!
The Alcazaba of Málaga
It amazes me sometimes how Málaga’s city centre is not celebrated much more in travel blogs and Instagram pages. Especially given how accessible it is, with cheap flights into Málaga’s airport daily and its mild, sunny winters and not too oppressive hot summers.
“I think Málaga is quite the unsung star of Europe.”
