Virtual Tasting | Catavino
I really love Catavino – it’s such an informative and innovative source of information on Spanish & Portuguese wines. The food of the region is key, but it’s just as vital to know about the great wines available too. This is the place to find out!

Back from Portugal with a belly full of wine

How do I start this post? I wish I knew. Last night – or more accurately, this morning – we arrived back in Barcelona after a long day of traveling through the Cork forests of Portugal, followed by trains, planes and automobile adventures back to our house in Terrassa. Over […]

Sherry Rooftop Tasting Video

We realize it’s been awhile since we’ve done a rooftop tasting, but we found that it was too difficult to both drink and tape ourselves, kind of like patting your head and rubbing your stomach at the same time. Obviously, we needed help, and Andres was our man! Bringing his […]

All the Fun of a Virtual Wine Tasting without the Notes!

Last night, right when the sun was setting over the mountains creating an intense and beautiful collage of pinks and purples, we sat down to grilled green peppers and sausage and had a little epiphany: why not videotape ourselves drinking rosé instead of writing up a traditional tasting note! Not […]

Virtual Wine Tasting for April

I am officially slamming my gavel down and declaring our Virtual Tasting Theme for April, Rosé! Why? For several reasons. One, I like rosé wines and because I am the official “decider”, rosé it is. Two rosé wines can be absolutely fantastic and worth exploring. Three, we tend to think […]
