Blue Spittoons at Bodega Nekeas

By Andrew Barrow In Photographs
I once attended a wine tasting, many moons ago now, where a rather cocky taster gave us great hilarity as his, no doubt expensive, silk tie slipped into a rather full spittoon. Think of the dripping on extraction from the ‘liquid’. It wouldn’t have been at all amusing if it had happened to me mind!

One of the least glamorous aspects of wine tasting is the spitting and the residue of those silly little dry biscuits. And I’ve never been tempted to photograph those vital vessels. Until now. Here, for this weeks Sunday Wine Shot, a simple white dresser displaying blue glass Spittoons snapped in the tasting room of the Nekeas winery deep in the heart of Navarra, Spain. As with many of the wineries visited during the excellent trip to Navarra, the wines from Nekeas are not currently available in the UK: ‘currently seeking importer’. I just wish someone would hurry up and correct this injustice…
