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 »

  • Torres Viña Esmeralda 2013

    Snoothrank:

    This wine is about 5 euros in Spain - an unbelievable bargain by North American standards. The nose is full of wild rose and other sweet garden flowers filled in by apricot and peach. The entry is quite smooth and luscious with more soft fruit such as peach and maybe a bit of lychee nut. Would pair nicely with seafood - especially cuttlefish ... Read More

  • L'Agnet 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This very typical Priorat has gobs of coffee, deep red fruit and plenty of sediment - the latter being a product of sitting in the supermarkets of Barcelona a bit longer than anticipated by the producer. Good Priorat intensity on the nose and palate and consequently an excellent value. 88 points. Read More
