Amphora in Spain

Clay amphorae held most of the wine and olive oil until glass bottles and corks replaced them. This old urn is still being used to hold refreshment for the workers raking grapes from trucks to old fashioned crushers in Spain. Spain has been, to its credit and detriment at the same time, among the slowest to modernize. While so many of the worlds wineries go puketa puketa and the wine comes out the same, Spanish wine, for the most part, retains it unique character. But the pressure to change is great. The word Merlot sells more bottles than Rioja, although until recently there was nary a Merlot vine in the Rioja region.
