Finalist for the 2008 American Wine Blog Awards! | Catavino
I really love Catavino – it’s such an informative and innovative source of information on Spanish & Portuguese wines. The food of the region is key, but it’s just as vital to know about the great wines available too. This is the place to find out!

Finalist for the 2008 American Wine Blog Awards!

The results are in and Catavino has been announced as a finalist in the 2008 American Wine Blog Awards! Hosted by Tom Wark of Fermentations, we are elated to be nominated for The Best Single Subject Wine Blog. Thank you!

Over the past three years, what started as journal of our wine experience in Spain has now turned into a full blown business. Having traveled throughout Spain and Portugal, interviewing winemakers, attending tastings, and generally experiencing the culture at its finest, we have gained a considerable amount of love and appreciation for Iberia. And to be honest, it’s hard not to, especially when considering that we live in the heart of the one of the most under appreciated and widely diverse wine regions of the world. Hence, we are thankful to be here and consider ourselves lucky to be one of the few whose work is also their passion.

Now, we need your help. For all those die hard Catavino fans our there, including you silent lurkers :-), please take a moment to vote for us. And if your thinking, “hey how about a little something, you know, for the effort?” We can assure you that there will be no money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness. So you got that going for you, which is nice.

Cheers,

Gabriella and Ryan
