Podcast #15 – A visit to Codorníu

Grapes going to crush @ Codorníu

My parents were in town this past week which resulted in the slow posting schedule. However, we had a great time and were able to include a visit to the Cava wine producer, Codorníu. A morning stroll across the grounds of this historic estate and an early afternoon wine tasting made for not only a fantastic time, but also an educational one for my parents. We tasted 3 wines and covered most of the estate’s facilities. I truly believe my parents learned a lot and I hope you learn some too.

I organized this segment by first asking my parents what they knew before they went on the tour and then followed up after the tour with some further questions back at our place. For the middle part, I cut and pasted together highlights and interesting facts that our guide Felicia shared with us.


I hope you enjoy the show and I encourage you to take a tour of Codorníu if you happen to visit the Barcelona area. The winery is only a short 1/2 hour car ride from downtown and it is a beautiful sight to see.
