Grandma-MicaHappy Holidays from Minnesota!! Here in the frigid tundra, the Opaz clan is gathered around the fireplace enjoying a warm and intimate holiday among family. Freshly made maple twist coffee cake, steaming hot coffee and Port wine are savored among a heap of presents as snow delicately makes its way to the frozen ground. It’s one of the few times of the year that you feel that rare cozy feeling, unique to cold weather and a warm hearth, a time to reflect on how fortunate you are to have people you love close by.

It’s on this day, with our newborn son cuddled next to us, that we want to thank all of you for making our Christmas so fantastic. With gracious messages streaming in from around the world wishing us a wonderful day, we would like to extend the same in return.

To our correspondent writers, thank you for your time, energy and incredible perspectives that make Catavino what it is today. Hence, if you have a moment, make sure to click on any of their names to read their amazing work: Sonia Nolasco, Andrea Smith, Sam Zucker, Rick Fisher, Tara O’Leary, John Perry, Quentin Sadler, Carla Bigio. You won’t be disappointed!

And to you our dear readers, thank you!! Without your support, we clearly wouldn’t be here today. Thank you for helping make Catavino one of the top wine websites today, almost 9 years later.

Have a lovely Holiday Season!!
