Exploring the Wine Glass

Xarel.lo on Winephabet Street

November 29, 2021

It’s Monday, Let’s raise a glass to the beginning of another week. It’s time to unscrew, uncork or saber a bottle and let’s begin Exploring the Wine Glass! Today we return to Winephabet Street, where the letter of the day is X and it stands for Xarel.lo. 

When we decided that this month’s episode was going to be about the Spanish grape variety Xarel.lo, I immediately knew who to reach out to in order to get the most information possible - Rick Fisher; Spanish Programs Director for Wine Scholar Guild. He not only graciously agreed to come onto the show, but secured a Xarel.lo grower and winemaker; Ignasi Segui from Vinyes Singulars.  

Xarel.lo is one of the three main grapes in Cava, but it can be found as a single varietal and in multiple expressions. By sheer dumb luck, each of us had a different expression of Xarel.lo. - Debbie had Cava, I had a still, Rick had an orange wine and Ignasi had a late harvest which made us all jealous! 

The hour went fast and we learned so much. I know this episode is going to be a top rated one!
