International Varieties: Are They Intended to Reflect their Origin or are They Made to Please?

written by Oliver Styles | 20th June 2011

In my last post, I highlighted an ‘international’ grape variety, grown in Spain, made in Spain, but not allowed to say which region it’s from because the local Denominacion de Origen (DO) doesn’t recognize Viognier as part of its ‘terroir’. Whether this is fair or not is a difficult question – just what does a grape have to do to be allowed...

Mas Candi: Reinvigorating the Native Grapes of the Penedès

written by Gabriella Opaz | 20th October 2010

As we’ve boasted on many an occasion, the Penedes is an unlimited geyser of native grapes. From our beloved Xarel.lo, a white chameleon grape capable of displaying intense tropical fruit and mineral aromas, to Samso, a vivacious and precocious  red grape, the Penedes is a multifaceted palette of flavors.

Get Your “Wine Fault” Out of My Glass: Misconceptions, Misnomers and Misadventures with Wine

written by Gabriella Opaz | 1st June 2010

Do you know what a wine fault is? I thought I did, until the London International Wine Fair when APCOR, the Portuguese acronym for Associação Portuguesa de Cortiça (Portuguese Cork Association), sponsored a tasting on wine faults. They’re goal was to help guide wine professionals and social media influencers through an educational session that described the various faults that...

The Spanish Cava that Saved the Party

written by Guest Blogger | 2nd March 2010

It seemed like a good idea at the time. My local wine seller said Emeri Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc was “a guaranteed crowd-pleaser” from down under and some non wine geeks were coming over for dinner.
