Was it really only last weekend that I was in Bulgaria? The first winery stop of our four day trip was at the Medi Valley Winery in, well, the Medi Valley. It is where Spartacus came from. The weather was atrocious it has to be said for the whole weekend. The previous week sunshine and high temperatures. Over the weekend torrential rain, especially while we were at the Medi Valley Winery, and dense fog. The rains certainly held up a few growers in gathering their fruit but at Medi the Merlot had arrived just that morning and awaited processing as we toured the facilities. Here are those Merlot grapes, complete with a hoard of wasps, this weeks Sunday Wine Shot(s).
