Catalunya has a distinguished tradition of winemaking. Viticulture is thought to have been introduced by the Phoenicians and the Greeks around 400 B.C. It’s regarded to be super distinct from Spain's other wine regions because of the versatility of its wine styles. There is a strong French influence on two of its most recognizable wines, the Champagne-style sparkling Cava and its red table wines, which have similar characteristics to those produced in Roussillon, just the other side of the Pyrenees.

Blasting off with Catalunya’s most fun pet nat – Benjamina! Silky fizz, intense flavors. Goes down like a charm. Both Bodegas Clandestina and Cosmic Vinyaters bring us two slippery, textural wines that will go with any BBQ you bring it to.
Els Bassotets is a Macabeu that’s marked with electric acidity, apricot nectar, lemon juice, earthy-savoury mineral character. SO much personality and SO delicious. We had to include two wines from Partida Creus here as the duo is sailing the ship for indigenous grapes in the region.
Brutal!!! is their zero-zero wine made from Sumoll Blanc, while the SW is their sweet wine made from SIX different Catalan grapes. Fresh feel to it, with fine grained but firm tannin, and a long minty finish. Just beautiful.
