HAPPY NEW YEAR! This week Roque and Luke return again to those sun-dappled volcanic islands of the Canaries. They sample a bottle from DO Tacoronte-Acentejo in the northeast part of the island. Viña Norte by Bodegas Insulares. They toast 2018 and chat top 5 wine choices!
On this week’s podcast Roque and Luke hit up another Vino de Pago from the lands of Don Quixote. DO Campo de la Guardia and a bottle of Martué. Wine controversies are back as the pair discuss wine tastings and answer a geeky question about gravity in winemaking! Salud!
Time to say goodbye to our beloved Catalonia with the little known DO Pla de Bages. We have tried Abadal Franc, an unexpected red wine that has not left us indifferent. See for yourself, but watch out! Roque and Luke say more nonsense than ever.
Today Roque and Luke travel to DO Alella, back to Catalan lands, where they will discover the red wine Parvus Syrah 2014, from Bodegas Alta Alella. The perfect occasion to answer some questions that had been left unanswered, besides saying a few stupidities and nonsense.
Happy Podcast Day! This week Roque and Luke tackle another one of the single estate Vinos de Pago! This time it’s DO Pago Florentino, a wine made in the depths of La Mancha but is owned by legendary Ribera del Duero bodega Arzuaga. They talk wine movies and receive and answer live ‘in the moment’ questions from some listeners.
