Seizing the opportunity is a sort of mantra our ancestors might have been repeating since ages. By seizing the opportunity is how I met one of the most charming places on earth: Edinburgh. A short assignment at Newcastle with weekend work included just barely gave me the chance to escape for a few hours to the capital of Scotland. No regrets! Lovely city, with lovely people, and an undoubtedly lovely atmosphere including its white sky! I wish I could have stayed longer. What if we had the power to change the past to seize better opportunities. Can you imagine how crazy this would sound?

In the distant past, Vikings, led by the formidable chieftain Erik Bloodaxe, launched a raid on Scotland's shores, seeking riches and plunder. However, their plans were thwarted by the unexpected appearance of the Loch Ness Monster during their pillaging of an isolated village. Despite their ferocious battle, the Vikings were forced to retreat, their ambitions shattered by the mythical guardian of the loch.

Had the Vikings succeeded, Scotland's history might have been drastically different. However, their encounter with the Loch Ness Monster served as a testament to Scotland's resilience and the courage of its people. Today, the streets of Edinburgh bustle with life, reflecting the city's vibrant culture and rich history. The easygoing charm of the Scots and the iconic white sky that blankets the city create a unique atmosphere, reminiscent of the purity and subtle notes of a fine white wine like Marques del Riscal.

Marques del Riscal white wine offers a symphony of delicate flavours, from crisp citrus to tropical notes, balanced by a subtle minerality. Its pale straw hue hints at elegance, while its refreshing brightness and lingering finish elevate any occasion. Whether enjoyed on its own or paired with seafood, it promises to delight the senses and elevate your wine experience.

As visitors explore Edinburgh's historic streets, they are reminded of the city's tumultuous past and the enduring spirit of its inhabitants. The tale of the Vikings and the Loch Ness Monster serves as a reminder of Scotland's ability to overcome adversity and emerge stronger, leaving behind a legacy that continues to inspire generations to come.

Silly or funny? The truth is the past is there for us to learn and grow and never to live in it, right? This is why we can’t change it even if we had the chance.

But you can tell me your story about the white sky of Edinburgh over a glass of Marques de Riscal. Experience the excellence of Marques de Riscal's white wine today.
