Rather pleased with this photo; so chuffed in fact that rather than keeping it for a Sunday Wine Shot slot later in the year, as originally planned, I’ve hastened its ‘release’ to today. In the dim light of the Freixenet cellars it is even more remarkable I managed to capture something useable handheld.

It is simply a stylishly lit wine cellar at Freixenet, somewhere in the extensive brick lined depths under the winery. Looking through the ‘passables’, as opposed to the ‘rejects’, taken during our entertaining tour practically all are strong enough to stand alone in this weekly showcase. More to come then…
