Codorniu – Cuvee Barcelona 1872
This wine selection was created to honor the origins and memorialize the year when Josep Raventós created the first version of the Cava wine.
Grapes went through proper management and careful winemaking process as well as maturation to obtain great characterization.

Michael is an online enthusiast, with a lot of knowledge about online marketing. Traveling around the world to hunt for the perfect wine. Latest on Sicily, where Etna has a huge impact on the taste, which is strong with a bitter aftertaste for the youngest wines, but older wines are fantastic. Drinking wine, and writing about them, are one the passions. Remember to drink responsibly 🙂
