Catalunya Wine

 

Catalunya (Catalonia in Spanish) is located in the north-east of the Iberian Peninsula and is home to many famous Spanish subregions. It is in an ideal location for wine making thanks to a diverse climate. The coast is known for dry and hot summers and mild winters (the Mediterranean climate). Inland It is very hot in the summer and cold in the Winter (the Mediterranean Continental climate). And north to the Pyrenees has a climate typical of high mountain regions with very cold and snowy winters and hot summers with abundant rainfall.
 
Wine has been produced here since the time of the Romans, who started planting and producing grapes near Tarragona (which was the Iberian capital at the time). Since then, the winemaking region spread and flourished until the 19th century Phylloxera crisis killed most of the red grapes grown there. 
 
Luckily for the Raventos family, conditions worked out in Penedes to replant vines and produce the first Cava, which is now the area&rsquo Read more »

  • Capcanes Mas Donis Barrica 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Very spicy, aromatic nose with pepper and some other spices that I can't quite put my finger on. Notes of oak accompany berry fruit. Medium body with a somewhat light mouthfeel. Moderately firm tannins. Even though the varietals in this wine are the same as in the Rhone wines I often drink, this wine definitely has a style all its own. Read More

  • Cellars Baronia Montsant Flor d'Englora Negre Jove 2006

    Snoothrank:

    This "young red" as described by the maker was very affordable at about $9 at Costco so I gave it a try. It appeared a deep violet yet not dark purple, not thin. The bouquet was light, fruity, nothing big. Taste was interesting. It hit my tongue like a flash, the acids were noticeable to me but it settled down on the tongue quickly. I noticed a... Read More

  • Torres Grand Coronas 2001

    Snoothrank:

    One of the best reds for me this far. I drunk it fall 2008, so it was matured in my friends cellar for a few years. That really was worth of waiting. Really inexpensive, but a really great wine if you want to give her a bit time to mature in peace. And especially this vintage was great in my opinion. Read More
