Podcast #12 – Interview with Adrienne Smith, Contributing Writer for Catavino.net

Adrienne SmithToday after a one week hiatus we’re back with an interview with Adrienne Smith. For about 6 months now she has been helping out to contribute to Catavino.net with articles on regions, grapes and more. This week I had a chance to sit down and talk to her about her recent certification as a Sommelier here in Spain. I hope you enjoy our chat and learn a bit about what it takes to study about wine here in Spain.

Other news is that Catavino has a new home. This week with Gabriella still in the States, I loaded up a rental car and move us up to Terrassa just outside of Barcelona where Gabriella will be working at a private school. Pretty exciting news and it also means that we are now in the middle of Cava country. Catalunya is a diverse region with it’s own language and culuture and we look forward to exploring it as we begin to settle into our new home. Stay tuned in here as we continue to bring you the best Portuguese and Spanish wine news anywhwere on the web!

Till soon,
