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!

Sherry – Spain’s Cure for Summer heat!

Four Sherries on the Roof

Later today, we’re heading up to our roof to film a litte Sherry tasting. July’s Virtual Tasting has been sherry at Catavino, and although not a lot of you have joined us this month, we hope this will change. Count on some good bodega profiles this week, after we enjoy a few sherries with the fresh treats we picked up at the local market today. Boquerones (white anchovies), Jamon de Bellota (no one makes better ham than Spain), black and green olives, raw almonds, grilled salmon, cured manchego cheese, and much, much more. Well, I should be out enjoying the day, so I’m headed back upstairs to our sunny roof. I just wanted to share a picture that I thought turned out nice before I go. Hope you enjoy it!

Cheers,
