Wine From Catalonia in Uvinum's blog


Wine destinations for early New Year travellers

 TAGS:If you are so lucky that on the early year you can leave home to travel to any domestic or international destination to disconnect, meet friends, relax, go out and forget about the routine you can also take the chance to do a bit of wine and food tourism, which never hurts and helps expand knowledge in these matters.

For example, if you are in the lucky group that will spend these days of January in the Canary Islands enjoying the good weather and the beach, then there is nothing better than to taste a Malvasia, sweet or dry. But if you are looking for bodied red wines with high dose of design (outside on the bottle), you cannot go without bringing in the suitcase a Suertes del Marqués El Esquilón, which is also great and surprises with its  combination of Tintilla and Black Listán grapes.


Mediterranean wines

 TAGS:The Spanish coast is ideal for growing red and white wine with a different twist and with something in common to all of them: their Mediterranean character. From the North of Catalonia touring the coast in the province of Girona we find the DO Empordà - Costa Brava. The first one of many of the ones we can find in Catalonia.

A little further down South we have the DO Alella, famous for its white wine. I love all Alella wines I have tried and I like how special they are, especially when you consider the small size of this Denomination of Origin, which makes them produce only a few thousand bottles per year.
