I don’t like to rehash posts and repeat places we’ve been on the regular, but sometimes…I just gotta! Because we always have visitors coming and going, we often end up taking them to our favorite spots. And one of those is our friends’ wine bodega in the village of Trebujena.
You can read our other posts about Trebujena right here. In this post you’re reading now, I just wanted to share some photos from when my parents came to visit. Lots of good food, wine, views, and friends!
Our pal Pepe and his dad, Papá Pepe, are always a treat to be around. Papá Pepe runs things at this private family winery and vineyard, and it’s always a joy to see his lovely face. He’s not only proud of all the things he does here, but he’s forever excited about it. And this is why we keep going back.
First, the bodega! I won’t go into too much detail here since you can read about our other visits here.
Insanely good, homemade vinegar if you so please.
The barrel room is small, but Papá Pepe has quite a range of wines and sherries. He’s also always experimenting, so he’s got some interesting ones that we’ve never even heard of before.
My folks with Papá Pepe.
Me trying to pour wine and failing miserably.
My dad doing a much better job than me, with a little guidance from Pepe.
It’s harder than it looks! I swear!
And my lovely parents, enjoying life together.
After tasting all those delights, we popped over to a local restaurant for some seriously fine cuisine.
Mmmmm! Everything was really good, but that octopus was just outstanding. So. Good.
After that dessert up there and some coffee, we headed over to the vineyard. It was the off-season, so the vines were bare at this time. Still, a great place to wander. Papá Pepe also has a huge garden here where he grows all sorts of fruits and vegetables.
The gang’s all here!
Not the best picture, but ah well!
After visiting the winery, we headed down to the Guadalquivir River for a glorious sunset.
We made the dads pose for a sunset picture as well. =P
The sunsets here are always breathtaking as it falls over the river and the horizon.
There are a few scuttled boats here as well, which always make for good photo fodder.
And that’s a wrap!

A very special and very big thanks to Pepe and Papá Pepe, and to our family for coming along for the ride!
