#SpainLove: Gloria Ferrer's 22nd Annual Catalan Festival 07/19/14 & 07/20/2014

As my lovely #Vinopanion readers already know, I am a *huge* fan of Spain, Spanish culture, food, and of course, #wine!  Indeed, I have had the great fortune to attend media trips to both the Navarra and Murcia wine regions of that Iberian country, and I just hosted two events for #MurciaWine at #WBC14 last weekend.  The Lady Beth Fontaine (Tw) also attended the Murcia trip and we are constantly on the prowl for Spanish culture here in the US (including the fantastic Zuzu in our Napa hometown).  Indeed, our very first trip together to Europe was an epic tour through Spain, finishing with some downtime in the equally beautiful land of Portugal.  It was on this very trip that we discovered our most beloved city in all of this fair world: Barcelona. The jewel of Catalan culture has bewitched us ever since, with its glorious and unique districts, tapas crawls, #Cava sparkling wine, and many MANY amazing sites, architecture and museums. This brings us to the featured event of this love story to Catalunya y España:

The Gloria Ferrer 22nd Annual Catalan Festival, happening this weekend in Sonoma, CA! All the deets, after the leap!

More Wine Articles

Over the last 7 years (yes, my blogo-versary was just last month!), I've managed to overwhelm everyone I know with my mad passion for vino.  So, it might come as some surprise to casual readers that the last 1.5 years have seen a new passion start to share space alongside my wine fridge: triathlons.  I have mentioned this healthy kick a couple of times here on Vinopanion, but this is the first time that those two passions have collided into a wonderful blend of health, wine, and healthy wine.  I'm very happy to announce that I will be partaking in the 2014 Rodney Strong Vineyards Vineman Monte Rio Olympic Triathlon this Sunday, June 8, while proudly sponsored by none other than the kind winemaking folks over at title sponsor, Rodney Strong Vineyards (WL, FB, Tw, IG, YT)! Vineman (FB, Tw, YT)  has a rich history of triathlons and multisport competitions in the Sonoma County area Read on...

Handcrafted at The Perkins 2014

I've been to my fair share of beer & wine events over the years; the wine events tend to be more hoity- toity, while the beer ones are usually a casual affair. Rarely do you hear about a beer tasting being held in a fine art & music center. "Handcrafted at The Perkins Center " was the best of both worlds, casual but a little dressy, urban architecture with a country feel, novice beer drinkers drinking along the most strident beer geeks. All the while surrounded by beautiful art of all genres; pottery, watercolor & oil paintings, jewelry and both traditional & digital photography. It really made you feel artistic just being there :) The event benefited The Perkins Center for the Arts, a non-profit with locations in Collingswood & Moorestown NJ. the center offers visual & performing art classes, music instruction, summer children's art camp & other art/music related Read on...
