Bodega Profile – Bodega Clos Figueras – DOC Priorat

If you rake your brain a bit, you may remember an article we posted last week describing our trip to DO Montsant with Tim from Winecast and Miquel, the export director for Bodegas Laurona.

WBW #27 – Icy Desserts!

Day Trip to Bodega Torres

  Editor’s note: This article was written in 2006, and I am no longer an English teacher, but the information here is as relevant now as it was then. Iberia does not hide winemaking from children, nor do I sense they ever will.   Allow me to begin this post […]
