A Couple of Wine Notes – Montau de Sadurní

written by Gabriella Opaz | 25th May 2009

Recently, Ryan and I were inspired by both Lenndevours and Spittoon, two wine blogs on either side of the vast Pacific Atlantic, for creating simple and straight-forward articles on wines they’ve tasted, and at times, just haven’t had the opportunity to share with others. Due to a large quantity wine notes slowly slipping through the cracks and not seeing...

Winery of the Week – Chozas Carrascal

written by Gabriella Opaz | 5th December 2008

A few months ago, we made a trip down south to Utiel-Requena to experience the harvest in full swing. With the autumn light streaming across the vines with hints of seasonal color change on the tips of the leaves, it was a beautiful site to experience. However, despite our desire to publish this article earlier, life got the best...

Wine of the Week – Herdade da Malhadinha Nova 2006

written by Ryan Opaz | 10th October 2008

It’s been a month and a half since the European Wine Blogger’s Conference, and shamefully, we’re just now getting around to not only retasting many of these wines, but simply entering our notes on the numerous great wines we tasted. Today, I want to point out a wine that I think is starting to mature gracefully and is worth...

Wine of the Week: Sybarus Tardana 2007

written by Gabriella Opaz | 26th September 2008

If you’ve stayed with Catavino for long enough, it’s inevitable that you’ve heard us debate over the exact number of indigenous grapes in Iberia, and the fact that none of us are certain how many there are.  By some accounts there are approximately 400, and by other accounts, the number soars to over 1,000. This rather large numerical gap...

Wine of the Week – Fitapreta Vinhos

written by Gabriella Opaz | 19th September 2008

There is no way I can start this post without sharing my elation that my hand is free to type. For those of you who are not in the know, I have been in a cast for exactly 78 days, as reminded to me by my doctor this morning. But now, my cast is gone, and from its hard...

Wine of the Week – Bodegas Castro Martin

written by Ryan Opaz | 12th September 2008

Editors note: Starting today, we will be highlighting an Iberian wine, or winery, every Friday. It may cover a single one, a project or a winery. We’ll try, in most cases, to choose wines that are widely distributed, but this will not always be possible. Hope you enjoy. About a year and half ago, I stumbled across a wine...
