Casa de Madero Winery

Wine & History...great combination!



Historic Parras
We visited Parras Coahuila, a beautiful Spanish Colonial town set in the hills between Torreon & Saltillo. Parras is the home to the oldest winery in the Americas the Casa de Madero Winery. The town has an array of churches & colorful homes of which many date to the 1500's. The altitude was high enough and the desert far enough that the air felt very fresh. John & I jumped ship on our winery tour and walked around on our own, no one noticed two less people.

Very picturesque! How was the wine by the way? Between the wine tour and the martini I am feeling very tipsy for 2:30 on a Monday afternoon!
