We are enjoying some of the last days of Summer Sunshine that brought some great new get togethers and exciting event happenings in Galicia and in the USA. El Camino Del Vino was excited to participate in a very special Harvard University Alumni Reunion on the campus in Cambridge, MA, USA. Sienna Leis Co-Chair of her 15th Reunion Class of 2000 created a wonderful series of events for alumni´s to reconnect and share in and we were grateful to be a part of a unique panel session this past May 29, 2015 (Friday): Spirituality in the Modern World: The Camino & Other Journeys of Faith – celebrating the spirit of the Camino and the power of Spiritual Journeys On Physical Paths!
A very special thank you to Sienna Leis and the Harvard Alumni Event Team for including us as a sponsor to help share in a fantastic time of reconnection for her and her classmates. I would like to express my gratitude and special thanks to all who helped make participating in this event possible: Marc Heffner of Camino Estrella for your wonderful and creative artistic designs that have helped to bring to life my dream of more than 4 years of El Camino Del Vino as it is most exciting and a special time to share this special experience together. Special thanks and my heartfelt appreciation to: Cándido Pazos of Códice Calixtino Book & Los Portones Del Camino Wine, Francisco Javier Piñeiro and Ruben Garcia of Eidosela Bodegas, Marta Villén Sierra of Ruta Do Viño Da Ribeira Sacra, Alexandra Seara Consorcio De Turismo De Ribeira Sacra, and Centro Do Viño Ribeira Sacra for helping El Camino Del Vino with specialty items that make a unique and wonderful Invitation to Visit Galicia to Travel, Taste & Enjoy!!!
We waited a long time for summer to arrive in Galicia and now it seems that soon it will be over as we are almost halfway through August… The Bodegueros – winemakers – will be paying extra close attention to Las Viñas – As VIDES – The Vines as they begin to make preparations for the special and important work of VENDIMIA – Wine HARVEST! So it is countdown for Bo Camiño TASTE IT! and El Camino Del Vino as the friends of Los Corchos – “wine lovers” – await this very special celebration in the fields and for us it will be the Ancient Roman Vineyards of Ribeira Sacra – so looking forward to it. Another 4 year dream coming to life 🙂

La Noche Templaria – The Night Of The Templar Festival – had us back out filming Bo Camiño TASTE IT! in Ponferrada. The city so named for the “Bridge Pons Ferrata” that provided easier crossing for pilgrims who could choose from two different and important routes along the way. The Camino Francés that heads northwest to Villa Franca Del Bierzo or the Camino Invierño – The Winter way that heads west avoiding the snow topped mountains in winter of O Cebreiro the gateway into Galicia.
Jaime Pardo and Maria Santín of Imaxina Diseño, German Limeres of Gastrofotographia and I enjoyed meeting new people, taking in the atmosphere of the ancient town of Ponferrada and filming some of the unique gastronomy, fun festival events and ceremonies. A very special thank you to Jesus who coordinated our activities and for meeting some wonderful people in Ponferrada including Gabriel Vallejo Carnero – La Destileria Bar, Maxi Campelo – Casa Las Bombas Restaurant, and Miguel A. Varela – Teatro Municipal Bergidum for including us in some incredible gastronomy and festival ceremonies.
