There were photo opportunities aplenty on the drive up to the Sarria winery in Navarra. But this was a wine trip, not a photographic one. The drive ended at a large winery complex, totally surrounded by vines and named vineyards. At the edge of the complex, overlooking a swath of (soon to be replaced) Malvasia vines, lies a small chapel dedicated to St. Clement, the 4th Pope.

The chapel was lit by sunlight streaming through four modern stained glass windows, displaying fishes, sheaves of wheat and a bunch of grapes. Each window was also decorated with a wrapped wine bottle. This weeks Sunday Wine Shot. More photos of the chapel and vineyard on SpittoonExtra.

Bodega de Sarria is located in Señorio de Sarria, a nature reserve in the Valdizarbe area of Navarra.

Twenty-five kilometres from Pamplona and bordering Puente la Reina, the main focus in Navarra of the Pilgrims´ Way to Santiago, Señorio de Sarría extends over almost 1,300 hectares of lush forest, cool riverbanks and large estates. The trip through Señorío up to the winery, of about six miles, is beautifully surrounded by lush nature, wildlife and history so ancient that it goes back to the Romanization of the area. The road runs along the course of the river Arga to the town of Sarría, where you can see the splendid Huarte family Palace, passing through part of the lush forests in the area, will eventually bring you to the vineyards and the winery.” Senorio de Sarria

  1. I absolutely love this (unsurprisingly – you know me and colour…!)

  2. I had the chance to live in the Navarra region (in Pamplona) and apart from having an amazing lifetime exprience, I just have to see I simply felt in love with the local wine. Both taste and price were something that I havent seen anywhere else, including countries like Italy and France!
