Wonderful and exciting – Penedés !!

I lived in paradise for many years – believe me, California is breathtakingly beautiful – but having been here in Penedés for almost two years now, I am blown away by the natural wonder of this place. Sometimes it upsets me that this beautiful region, shock full of delicious wine, sparkling and otherwise, is not more acknowledged, famous, hip, god-I-have-to-visit- kind of place in every wine lovers mind!! But you’ll all get here, sooner or later! Just keep reading my blog and it will happen to you, too!!

I just visited one of the fabulous cava bodegas – and there are more then 300 bodegas in this area- and it made me  realize how versatile and unique Penedés is! Walking in to Jaume Giro’ i Giro’ in the pueblo of Sant Sadurni d’Anoya is like walking into a hundred years ago – today!                                                                                                                                                                       We were greeted by a good natured, all around winery guy, Josep, who showed us around and poured some of the best of the house, cavas that have garnered 90+ points from Robert Parker. My favorites were Bombonetta (Rose’) and Brut Gran Reserva Montanya, and most of the cavas were €15 or less..just saying!

Jaume Giro’ i Giro’ will be pouring at the Cava Tast, the grand Cava street festival that runs for three days, Oct 5-7,  in Sant Sadurni’ d’Anoia, the capital of Cava!

Come visit, come taste, come discover this wonderful part of the world of wine!
