You may have noticed that I’ve been spending more time with Spanish wines, especially cava. I’ve been getting my palate ready for an upcoming press trip to Spain. In less than a month, it’s all going down!
I’m thrilled to be going to the International Wine Tourism Conference in Barcelona then going on excursions in Catalunya. Can’t wait to meet wine people from around the world, go to workshops, taste the food and sip cava. The keynote for the conference is Sarah Jane Evans, MW. I’m sure she will drop many pearls of wisdom.
I received the itinerary for the trip and so many exciting things are planned, including a trip to Codorniu Winery and a gala dinner at Freixenet. Let’s just say cava is the special guest at the conference. In the past few months, I have gained a new appreciation for cava. I look forward to learning more and exploring different cavas.
There will be plenty for me to write about on this trip, but I will also be posting live. You can find me on Twitter:@Shoshi and Instagram:@YolandaShoshana to get the scoop during my trip. I may even try to throw up a Google Hangouts to do a recap of the day’s events. Get ready, April 4th kicks off my Spain adventure.
