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!

Podcast #20 – Iberian Wine Varietals Outside of Iberia

Today we talk with Steven Ventrello of Parador Cellars, and the guys (Jeff Stai and Scott Klann) over at Twisted Oak winery, about their wines made with Iberian varietals. Great show and it was a lot of fun talking to both of them about their motivations behind making wine with grapes such as Tempranillo in the terroir of California!
