purple

100 years old purple

Last week, when I have visited a winery in Mátra Wine region, I found an eye-catching object on a track’s platform.
Its vivid purple colour was so flash, so I had to look, what is it.
The winery was Szőke Mátyás & Zoltán Winery and Matyi Bácsi said to me, these are pieces (or staves) of a 100 years old barrel! I took pictures of course, because these veterans deserve a little spotlight after such a long service!

And check it out, how wonderful colours can be production of nature! As if these beautiful purple colors would be the thanks from the wine to the barrel, for positive effects, for tannins, nice flavors…
