Wine by the litre at Candelaria Bodega, Sitges

Different wines, different barrels
Nothing should surprise you in Spain, one of the most wine producing countries in the world. At Candelaria Bodega in Sitges you may bring your own bottles and buy the quantity of wine you need directly from the barrel. Neat!!

I dropped in by coincidence to quell my thirst during a hot day this June. I and my friend Terje were thrilled to find a large number of rustic wooden barrels filled with different wines. At Candelaria Bodega you can either take your own bottles or buy ready washed to be filled up on the premises.

The wine on sale were of at least two qualities, one inexpensive and one more pricey, and you could get red, rosé, and white wine, but according to my own standards even the priciest of them would be cheap compared to what I would have paid for the same quantity here in Norway.

We did not run home to our hotel in order to fetch an empty bottle, but sat down at Candelaria Bodega to enjoy an icy cold Spanish Estrella Damm beer and the airconditioning. After the one refreshing beer, we took another, and went to do some grocery shopping at the nearby market. But that is another story.
