From champagne to cava

040615aOur trek to Europe reminds me of this year”s International Wine Tourism Conference. We started in the lounge at the airport with champagne. On board the IcelandAir flight to Reykjavik, we were served a  Mont Marcal Cava Reserva. The last session at the International Wine Tourism Conference is a presentation by next year’s conference host. Catalonia, Spain is the land of Cava. Perhaps we will taste a cava or two at the closing of this year’s conference.

The winery, Mont Marcal was established in 1975 in the Penrdés region of Catalonia. The yellow colored wine was a blend of Xarel·lo, Macabeo and Chardonnay. There was freshly baked bread aromas along with apple. The cava was crisp and paired well with the salmon served on our flight.

Next stop, Paris
