Time for a Hudin.com offer
Year 13, No. 05
Via a bit of spring cleaning, we noticed that while there have been many new subscribers to the newsletter, we haven't had a sign up offer in some time, so let's address that.
From today through Sunday, if you'd like to get in on what Hudin.com has to offer (nearly 6,500 tasting notes! reports on DOQ Priorat and DOC Rioja coming shortly!), go to www.hudin.com/subscribe and at the top of the checkout, use the coupon, spring25 to get 25% off the standard one-year price of $60, making it $45.
This promotion is only valid for personal subscribers, both new as well as people who would like to renew their current subscription. It's not valid for subscribers using the site in a professional capacity. Also, not valid for the two-year subscription as that's already discounted. If you have any problems, please write to us at email@example.com.
On the local front, we continue on here in Catalunya with extremely little rain. Despite that, the air is crackling with sulphur as, despite the lack of moisture, one must remain vigilant in the vineyard. This was the complete opposite to the 2014 vintage which made me wonder, how are these DOQ Priorat wines holding up?
Escaping the quiet village life from time to time is mandatory for sanity which is why I found myself in Madrid back in March. Was it just museums and tapas? Of course not as a down and dirty guide to the wine bars of Madrid was very much needed which now you can enjoy as a guide to when you're in Spain's capital.
Drink well, be well.
