The man, the legend… the missed opportunity! I had been looking forward to this wine tasting event ever since I was told they had sold out BUT would find a place for me. Raúl Pérez is one of the most influencial winemakers in Spain and so for him to be hosting an intimate tasting like this was like a gift from heaven, a dream come true. EXCEPT on Sunday evening I was struck down AGAIN by what I hope is another stomach bug. This one hit me even harder and, after spending all night with severe abdominal pain along with all the vomiting and other unpleasantness, it was clear I wasn’t going to make it to the event. Or anywhere else. Honestly, this really broke my heart. I hope one day I can visit his bodega. Also, I hope I don’t have Covid. Will test in the morning.
