Vinedo Puente Josepha


Hello

Today we are going to Muse about wine in Mexico.   If this is your first visit, welcome to Musings. If you have been here before, welcome back. Over time we are going to talk about many things: the past, the present, perhaps the future, travel, art, society and more. Wherever my musing takes me. I hope you will come along with me.

Viñedo Puente Josepha

Last year while in Mexico I met Doug H, a retired doctor, who lives on the outskirts of San Miguel de Allende in a winery he and his wife, Josepha have established.

The property is rugged and remote and has  three different vineyards and 1000 vines.

Doug  was especially proud of a tunnel he was building that would connect the house to the work area and which would provide storage space for the barrels of wine as they age.  It was partly built but not connected to the house when we were there.

In the course of our conversation Doug learned that I am an artist and he suggested I design a label for the next  harvest to be bottled.  When I returned home I created this design.

He liked it and we agreed that when I was next in town I would receive payment in the form of a case of wine.

That was last year.

So fast forward  to this year.  Jeanette and I went back to San Miguel de Allende and I contacted Doug.

I was especially interested in the tunnel and, of course, my case of wine.  Hah!

By this time the tunnel was complete.  To enter it we went down a short flight of steps into a room that was used for storage and other functions.

And the tunnel is amazing.

This is looking back toward the room.  We are standing at a bend in the passage.

This is looking forward.  It must be longer than a football field. The tunnel opens to a room in which the grapes are sorted, cleaned and pressed and in which the first fermentation occurs.

The blue barrels contain wine in the first and second stages of fermentation.  It will be transferred to wooden barrels like the ones on the floor for final aging.

The house is up the hill a bit,  obscured by the trees on the left .  The building in the center is the workroom connected to the tunnel.  A tasting and sales room is being built on top of the workroom.

So all in all, Viñedo Puente Josepha is quite a place.  It will be spectacular when completed.  If you find yourself in San Miguel de Allende you should look for it.

Oh, and I got my wine.
