Icewine in the Penedes: The First Electrically Defined Wine

written by Ryan Opaz | 31st July 2010

<rant>Twitter this past two days has been flooded with news that the Penedes region of Spain has approved a new DO for the category of Icewine.

This same theory holds true for wine....

written by Guest Blogger | 22nd April 2010

Editor’s Note: DO de Pago and Grandes Pagos de España can be easily confused, but as Louis Villard of Spiltwine.com found out at a recent tasting, the two are fighting similar causes, yet are altogether different.

Bar Zim: A Wine Bar Boasting of Rustic Authenticity

written by Gabriella Opaz | 5th April 2010
