    9/7/2014 11:17:00 PM - Hello Yagil, actually I am from Milan (even though I dont live there) so have visited most wine areas in Italy (Piemonte many many times, Tuscany, Soave, Valpolicella, Franciacorta, Sicily, Marche...). Also been to Bordeaux and Chateauneuf de Pape, but I think wine tourism is more fun and friendly in Italy vs France. However some of my favourite wine trips have been outside Europe (notably Napa/Sonoma, Cape Town Winelands and Barossa Valley).

You've to taste many in order to judge yourselves. Toro wine require min 7-10 years of ageing, as they're very tannic, while Priorat can be drank earlier. Gran Reserve wine from Ribera-del-Duero and Rioja should best be consumed after a min of 10-12 years. Cheers!

    1/26/2014 8:09:00 PM - Only dove into Spanish wines beginning last year and truly enjoy them, and what a bargain, generally. For Bonnie and me, Toro is emerging at the top of our list. Curious about your experience with Spain and why Ribera de Duero seems at the top of your list?

    8/22/2013 10:43:00 PM - Hello Harley, Thanks for your help. Our plan is to start in Priorat on Oct 22-23, Rioja 24-25, Ribera 28-29. My preference is the top/best wines' wineries: Alvaro Pacaios, Vega Sicilia, Pingus. Then Artadi, Ganuza, A. Fernandez, etc. 5-6 in each of these 3 regions. Don't know big wines from other regions - but would love to learn. Feel free to email a list of your recommendations. Also for restaurants. Thanks. yagil.barel@gmail.com

    8/21/2013 9:29:00 AM - Hi there Yagil, I shall like to send my favourites to your personal mail. My pleasure. Just give some clues of what do you prefer, new comers or most famous wineries, traditional or modern style, small or gigants brands,... I'm curious why only those three regions... Don't hesitate to ask me anything you can need during your stay here. Only a last advice, cause summer has last very late this year, someone is saying the harvest is going to take place in October so expected some wineries can be close those days. Cheers,
