Bodegas

In Spain, a bodega is a place where wines and spirits are being sold. More often than not, a bodega also describes a wine cellar where you might find a selection of locally produced wines but, the term will also describe a winery or a wine-producing firm. It is typical for a bodega that you can taste the wares without much obligation to buy.

Can Ramis in Felanitx was established 91 years ago in 1919, first as a wine merchant. You can still purchase a good selection of decent wines from the bodega, including open wines served by the litre from a barrel but, over the years the firm has developed into a wholesale operation serving the bar trade in the area with beer, water, soft drinks and wine, dabbling as a retail outlet on the side. I buy my Vino Tinto from Can Ramis, open, by the litre and straight from the wood barrel. My favourite wine there is the Tinto Selecció, a decent Red from the mainland, selling at 1,75 €/litre.

The photo was chosen from my archive. It was taken in Felanitx, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: August 28th, 2008. The time was 11:43:56.
