Lesser Known Wines of Catalunya Not to MISS!

written by Guest Blogger | 13th May 2015

That very first glass of Spanish wine – the wine that opened pandora’s box – consisted of a deep red from Rioja. Surrounded by expats, while lounging on a terrace in Madrid, the conversation turned from jovial bantering to obstinance. Don’t you know that Spain only had one decent wine region? That only Rioja is “the wine capital” of Spain? No…I didn’t know...

Red Grape Varieties of the Mediterranean Deserving More Attention

written by Quentin Sadler | 11th October 2012

Ever wondered why the same small bunch of grape varieties bobs up so frequently from wine regions around the world? There are many hundreds of different grapes out there, but only a small handful of them have managed to become widely grown and internationally known.

Bar Zim: A Wine Bar Boasting of Rustic Authenticity

written by Gabriella Opaz | 5th April 2010

Finding a quality “wine bar” in Barcelona is like finding a tapas restaurant without cured Spanish ham, challenging! For me, a quality wine bar isn’t about pomp and flash, nor is it about who can have the most wines from Rioja. A quality wine bar doesn’t need an attractive metrosexual god donned in a pressed black apron with his...

DO Montsant Cuisine and Food Culture – Where to Go and What to Eat

written by Ryan Opaz | 16th July 2009

When you ask people what Montsant has to offer beyond wine, you tend to get a very standard group of answers that only vary in the order they are received: almonds, olives, olive oil and hazelnuts. The logic being that the land is so harsh and rugged, with only a few lizards spotting the landscape, nothing other than a...

The Spanish Arbequina Olive from DO Montsant: Storing, Serving and Tasting Olive Oil

written by Gabriella Opaz | 13th July 2009

A few years back, while staying at the Perxe casa rural in La Molina, we were privy to taste our very first Montsant olive oil made from the  Arbequine olive. Sitting at a large wooden table with a loaf of bread, we dipped into the brilliant light jade colored oil, and as we brought the bread to our lips,...

Kosher Wine in Spain: The Spirituality of Wine in Montsant

written by Gabriella Opaz | 4th July 2009

In the past 4+ years living in Spain, I’ve seen my fair share of Spanish and Portuguese wineries. From old, rancid smelling and spiderweb infested bodegas making drop dead gorgeous wines to sleek and modern wineries who couldn’t make a decent bottle of wine if their life depended on it, my experiences have been vast and memorable. But never...
