The best wines in the strangest of years
Year 10, No. 10
There's an old proverb that one person's meat is another's poison. When it comes to wine however... we still hold up a smudged glass, sputtering between stained teeth, "Yes, this, this wine is the BEST!"
This is why I've aimed to make my annual Best Wines of Catalunya more a list of "meaningful suggestions" as opposed to something carved on a stone tablet and read from a mountain top. I do however hope you can find some of these 11 wines where you live though as they're mighty tasty!
To close out this year, I sincerely hope you've survived as best as any of us have been able to and let's hope next year truly holds a light at the end of the tunnel.

This is a list culled from over 800 wines tasted in the past year with prices from 5€ up to 150€. All colors, dry and sweet, still and sparkling. Basically a little something for everyone. I per la primera vegada, disponible en català!
AND NOW THIS
REGIONAL WINE REPORT
A small region about 50km northwest of Barcelona, it may not be on everyone's radar just yet but this Regional Report and its accompanying Tasting Report show that quality wines are definitely to be found from some very motivated winemakers.
