Catavino keeps you current not only with the remarkable wine developments in Spain and Portugal, two of the most dynamic wine producers on the planet, but you'll learn about food trends, new dishes and restaurants and the ancient and modern cultures on the Iberian Peninsula. And you may not notice it, but Catavino also happens to be one of smoothest designed websites you'll have the pleasure of visiting.

Podcast #5 – Wine Blog Wednesday #22

Wine Blog Wednesday

This weeks Wine Blog Wednesday is hosted by Tim of [Winecast.net->http://www.winecast.net] and his choice of themes was wines under 12.5% alcohol. I decided that since Tim was part of my inspiration to get into podcasting that I would record a short wrap up of my tasting instead of just writing about it. Enjoy the Podcast and check out the links below.

Talai Berri Txakoli

Footnote: I mentioned that the theme was low-alcohol wines, I was wrong. The theme is l ow alcohol reds, only!
