Catavino keeps you current not only with the remarkable wine developments in Spain and Portugal, two of the most dynamic wine producers on the planet, but you'll learn about food trends, new dishes and restaurants and the ancient and modern cultures on the Iberian Peninsula. And you may not notice it, but Catavino also happens to be one of smoothest designed websites you'll have the pleasure of visiting.

The Other Side of – Social Media Evangelism

We love talking about Iberian wines. We also love the culture, foods and people that are involved with them. And for this very reason, we work hard to ensure that everyone knows about these treasures. How do we do this? We help wineries use tools like blogs, social networks and other internet “stuff” to better promote themselves. This leads to us traveling about speaking at conferences, working with wineries, and hosting events every year. One such event took place last month in London called, the London International Wine Fair.

While in the past, our wrap-up consisted of the wines we encountered. This year, we had a chance to do even more. We were offered the opportunity to host social media seminars on a 60 meter square stand! And we hope the results speak for themselves.

Tell us your thoughts! Do you see a direct impact of social media on the wine world? Are you a convert or yet to be converted?
