Fiesta San Roque Day Two: Cowboys, Indians and Bull Fighting!

After a wonderful, albeit early-morning finish, we were all up and ready for the next day’s fiesta! Every year the Peña chooses a fancy dress theme which this year was Cowboys and Indians!

We all met back at the Peña head quarters where lunch and more Garnacha were served along with a lot of laughter at each others' outfits. 

However, I had to admire the guy who got the wrong message and came dressed as a Viking!!

After a typically mighty, long Spanish lunch we set off for the Corrida. It was my first bullfight and I certainly didn’t expect to be dressed as a cowboy for the occasion. The colours inside the bull ring were beautiful and the crowd and bands were in good voice.

Holidays over and so back to Castillon and where sadly hail has hit the vineyards. The Midi vintage is nearing so I will be heading down to the Roussillon first to check the vineyards and I hear the Muscat is already being picked, another harvest is about to start!
