If you follow me or Simple Hedonisms on Twitter or Facebook, you may already know this, but I am honored to announce officially to the Simple Hedonisms readers that I have been selected by Wine Pleasures to be part of their Cava Blogger Team!
As you may have guessed by my post on South Africa, I love traveling as much as I love wine. I am very excited to be combining the two passions on a trip to the sparkling region of Spain. I've already popped a few bottles of Cava in the fridge and I'm looking forward to getting to know them more in the next few months as I prepare for this experience.
About the Trip
The program will be a week long experience visiting over 16 sparkling Cava wineries generic levitra canadian healthcare and immersing myself in the region. Cava is a region I'm not as familiar with and there is no better way to learn about somewhere new than to spend a week exploring it on your own. I'll also have the weekend following the trip to explore a little bit on my own. With great choices such as a day trip to Barcelona, a wine country bike tour, or a day tasting still wines – I don't know how I'm going to decide which activity to do!
What It Means to Me
As someone relatively new to the wine blogging world, I am so honored that the selection panel has invited me to join this tour. Since William asked me to join Simple Hedonisms, I have been working a lot on my wine education and taken every opportunity to continue to expand my palate and experience. I know this trip will allow me to do more of the same.
I am also very excited to spend some time with other wine bloggers. In the past couple of months, I have met a few others briefly so it will be very educational to spend a week engaging with my peers. Wine tasting is always more enjoyable with other and I know this group is bound to have a lot of insights.
I really cannot wait for this trip and I'm looking forward to find fun ways to share it with all of the Simple Hedonisms readers! The official Wine Pleasure announcement can be found here.
If anyone has been to Cava, I would love to hear about your experiences!
