Spain, Sparkling, Uncategorized


Organic? Biodynamic? Women in wine? Castell D’Age, from Penedes in Catalunya, must be right up there as a hashtagger’s dream winery. I met this brilliant team when they were attending the Millsime Bio Organic Wine Fair in Montpellier late in January 2018. Top wines, top people, and the story to boot. I couldn’t not do a quick blog, could I?

A mate of mine who lives out in Barcelona is a shit hot chef. Joel Serra Bevin is the man behind the Papalosophy brand, and his cookbook is worth getting hold of if you like your Catalan cooking. It’s also probably the most incredibly photographed cook book I’ve ever seen. Really stonking publishing quality, check out the link below. Anyway enough of that, Joel’s got a great idea for you if you’ve got some game in the kitchen…

Social Media, Spain


I’ve been invited along to a conference in Barcelona by Timmer of Catalunya Wines. Now, I can’t really talk about it too much, as Timmer’s got his James Bond “top secret” head on. Fair enough I guess as it’s invitation only. But here’s the teaser video he’s put together to wet your appetites…

You might have seen a couple of pictures, or even the YouTube clip of it, but here’s my blog piece about my recent trip out to Barcelona, with the wife, and my mates Miles and Laura.

New Wine This Week, Spain, Sparkling, Whites

So usually at this part of the week I talk a little bit about what kind of food you should be having with your drinks this weekend.  But this is Cava, and having spent the sum total of 48 hours now in Barcelona, I can tell you they’d drink it with their breakfast if they could.  I think make sure you go with something salty, like a good helping of serrano or iberico ham, maybe something deep fried like croquetas, or go with Ant’s favourite, fish and chips!
