Social Vignerons published a vignette from the book “43 Wine Regions”

Vienna, VA – June 26, 2018 – Vin43, the premier wine consulting firm, announced today that Social Vignerons published “Discovering the wonderful wines of Spain’s Priorat Wine Region” a vignette from the book “43 Wine Regions: A Practical Guide to the Top Regions and Vintages Around the World”, written by Vin43 Managing Director Michael Biddick.

Located in Catalonia just south of Barcelona, Spain, Priorat produces one of the two highest quality DOCa classifications in Spain. Priorat, Spain accounts for roughly 1,600 hectares (3,954 acres), while the other red wine dominant DOCa, Rioja, has more than 60,000 hectares (148,260 acres).

With thousands of wineries from dozens of countries producing wine from a multitude of grapes and blends, everyone is chasing differentiation, accolades from the press, and top scores from wine experts. Instead of jumping on the bandwagon, Biddick shares his notes on Priorat and 42 other wine regions in the world, to help consumers select wines at restaurants, order bottles online, or shop at their favorite wine shop based on data.

“43 Wine Regions: A Practical Guide to the Top Regions and Vintages Around the World” was written for people to throw in their carry-on bag as they traveled to faraway countries where some of the best wine is produced. Join him on his journey as he synthesizes conversations and tastings with winemakers around the world and concrete data to arrive at a list of practical recommendation for wine enthusiasts. The book will be released on October 2, 2018.
