El Puño, Viogner, Vino de Mesa, 2009

written by Oliver Styles | 30th May 2011

Now I normally recoil from international varieties being propagated on Spanish soil like a liberal in Alabama. The idea of Pinot Noir in Castilla, for example, is about as revolting as seeing an Englishman in a baseball cap (to borrow a phrase from the Libertines).

Vinyes dels Aspres: Redefining Sweet Wines in the Emporda

written by Gabriella Opaz | 30th April 2010

To be different takes courage! I appreciate that which cannot be defined and those who fail to fit a description. As long you express yourself authentically, it’s absolutely irrelevant to me if you have 3 eyes, adore Coors Lite, or have a house filled with a half dozen ferrets. Individuality is interesting. This same theory holds true for wine....
