As we continued our Spanish journey, we landed in the port city of Malaga. Our shore excursion was to the charming town of Mijas to visit the Museo de Vino (Wine Museum). Mijas is know for its donkey taxis.
We had an interesting tour of this little town and stopped in at the miniature museum. Yes, it was a tiny museum. But the best part of the tour was a wine tasting at the Museo de Vino.
We didn’t see much of a museum as we were ushered to the second floor for our Spanish Wine Tasting.
Even I was surprised at the amount of meat that was served at this tasting. We had the Spanish Olives, which were incredibly tasty and lots of those cool tiny bread sticks. Manchego cheese was also served. Sorry, I was so excited about the cheese that I forgot to take a photo of it. We had several types of white and red Spanish wine. I have started to appreciate both but the real winner was the Manchego cheese. There is just something about Spanish cheese that means love to me.
Mijas is also know for its white buildings and winding streets. This tasting was a pleasant way to spend an afternoon.
