Remembering Barcelona

I am all packed and ready to go! Just need to wait 24 hours for the plane to take of as well. As I have some time to kill, I started looking at some photos from a year ago, and thought that I could share them with you to get everyone in the mood for Cava.

In the pictures it’s March 2014. It’s the time of the year to enjoy increasing rays of sun and Calcotada’s, green, long onions that you grill and dip to some delicious Romesco sauce (best ever!). 

We walked around in the village, took a tour around Torre Blanca, the home of Llagrima d’Or and Peret Fuster wines, and had a great barbecue at the vineyard. It was warm and sunny, we wore cool (at least we thought so after some cava…) cowboy hats and my friend Sami did a “sideways run” in between the vines (no pictures of that I’m afraid). Good times!

The agenda for the coming days will be very much focused on meeting some new producers. We will be visiting Vilarnau, Rimarts and Castellroig; and perhaps pop in at a few other estates if they just have an open door policy (you never know). We will also be having a barbecue (with Calcots) with our friends at Peret Fuster (yay!). So pace yourself for a weekend of fun, sun and Cava. Barcelona here I come!
