I'm sorry I don't have more photos. The kitchen is small but not tiny. The photo with Juan and his mom is in the kitchen, but you cannot see the room obviously. The living room has a carpet on the floor and pictures back on the wall. The looks a little bare as I believe it had just been painted.

Nola, this is super tempting!! If I could bring my dog, I'd park there for 2-3 weeks, wander the markets, take day trips, eat delicious Spanish food and come help at the winery. Would be AMAZING. Good cafe life for a single gal there who speaks 30 odd words of Mexican Spanish??

As long as we coordinate the dates ahead. We would not have to be at the winery for anyone to use the apartment. Our enologist speaks good English and can attend the guests too.

This was one of the most unique and bawler things I've seen in years. Congrats to the winner and hats off to the host for offering it.

I wanted to be in the running for this, tried to convince the Mrs. on Spain this summer, unfortunately other plans are interceding.

A buddy of mine that laughs at my wine insanity asked "Well, do you have to bring her?" And I honestly did consider it for about 2.356 seconds before realizing I'd never enjoy it after the hit should put out on me.

Maybe next year?
