Visit us here in Iberia

Ok, here's a partially free offer. If you come to Spain, and visit Barcelona, Gabriella and i offer ourselves up as guides to the best tapas bars and wine shops in BCN, for the price of some tapas along the way. Why you ask? Well truth is we love it when people visit and we've made some great new friends based on people visiting Catavino and asking where to go. Turns out we usually hook up for a drink and next thing you know their taking the train out to our house in the 'burbs for some roof top grilling! So my offer stands, contact us through Catavino and we'll be happy if we're not traveling at the time to show you around, and share some wine stories with you!

Wish I could get you Phillip out here...we'd have fun I'm sure of that...Cheers, r

Okay, now you are making me sad. I would love to visit Spain. Your offer is such a great idea, it certainly makes a trip like that more interesting, it is always nice to talk to the locals when you go somewhere new.

Ryan - if i come to visit you, will you start using snooth? ;)

now if only all the other wine bloggers were so easy to win over.

Very tempting! Hopefully it's an open offer -- I'm no psychic but I can see a visit to Spain in a few of our futures.

Hmmm ... I'm heading to Italy in September for a wedding. I could always reroute my return through Barcelona. That is the offer extends to other Snoothers ... :-)

Your all welcome, and Philip if you come to BCN, and bring a nice American wine or two, I'll make sure to post the notes to snooth! :)

mark, HondaJohn we'll be happy to crawl for tapas with you around downtown BCN

Although I haven't had a chance to meet Ryan personally we have emailed quite a bit about Spain and the wine there (THE BEST IN THE WORLD!). He is extremely helpful and informative. Anyone would do well to take him up on his offer. (I miss his regular podcasts, though). Actually, I should be out there next year as I'm doing a cooking vacation in the Priorat. We'll be visiting a different Priorate winery every day and even taking part in the harvest at one of them! I'll try to get in touch with you before I head out so maybe we can grab a bite and some wine.

rictobal, let us know when you get here and we'll make sure to grab a drink together.
