A celebration of Catalonia in California: Gloria Ferrer's Catalan Festival

July 23rd and 24th is the annual Catalan Festival at Gloria Ferrer Winery in Sonoma. Come for a taste of Catalan traditions, foods (Paella!), and music and wash them down with the sparkling and still wines of Gloria Ferrer. The winery was the first sparkling wine house in Carneros and this is their 25th anniversary. Indeed many special events will be happening during the festival including wine seminars and grape-stomping. Can't wait to get my feet wet...

I personally will be drinking as much of their sparkling wine as they will let me, especially the Va de Vi a sparkling wine made of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and a bit of Muscat lending notes of sweetness to the citrusy, yeasty goodness. All of their sparkling wines are satisfyingly-delicious.

Tickets are $50 and here is the link:
