Winner of the Catavino Q&A Contest | Catavino
This is an indispensable tool for those who want to follow, in English, what really goes on in the world of Spanish and Portuguese wines – lively, informative and, most important, first-hand, on-the-scene knowledge!

Winner of the Catavino Q&A Contest

douro1First off, we would like to thank everyone who participated in the Catavino Q&A Contest! We’ve received dozens of challenging, and highly imaginative, questions that will keep us knee-deep in research for months to come.

We would also like to extend a big and hearty congratulations to Benjamin Rivard Rapoza, the winner of the Catavino Q&A Contest!!! From all the questions submitted, Benjamin’s was drawn at random, and has awarded him a stunning – if we do say so ourselves – 11 x11 print on Torchon Fine Art paper of the Douro Valley (I suddenly feel like I’m Bob Barker on The Price is Right).

However, Benjamin’s winning question, “Are there many good Portuguese wines that are not available in the US?“, may require us to write a tome in response to his inquiry; but as we’ll be attending Essencia do Vinho in the first week on March, I trust we can get him a healthy Cliff Note version in the near future.

That said, we truly hope this contest will only encourage you to ask more questions! Our goal is to be a comprehesive resource for you, so please keep your inquiries coming this way!

On a completely separate note, we’d like to remind everyone that the Vinoteca Wine Tasting co-hosted by Catavino on February 27th is filling up fast.

Therefore, if you are interested in attending, please contact Caitlin today at:
