Website of the Month – Catavino

It is not easy to put this square peg in a round hole, as it is a very diverse website/blog that is being recommended here this month. Ryan and Gabriella Opaz picked up and moved from their home in Minnesota, USA to Madrid, in order to pursue their love of Spain and Spanish wines in particular. But in fairness, they also love the wines of Portugal and in fact, their excellent website/blog is dedicated to the wines of the Iberian Peninsula. I have spoken with Ryan on several occasions and he has a solid understanding of Portuguese wines, (and grape varieties) and has visited Oporto and The Douro as well as other wine regions in Portugal. Their site includes tasting notes, articles, wine recommendations etc. In fact, their site currently features a very solid report by Gabriella which all Douro/Port wine lovers should have a look at. It is entitled: Interpreting the Port Wine Label. Please have a look at the CATAVINO site when you have a moment, it’s well worthwhile!
