Catalonia is coming...

We've got a brand new menu coming to Juliet this year to wrap up the Spring season. Cuina Catalana will embrace the tradition and innovation of Catalonia. Juliet will be transformed into the loud, landscape that the cuisine embraces, enhances, and is inspired by. I'll do my best to bring out the same in the wine list. 

The Cava region is tucked away in Catalonia. Some say that Cava lays special claim to sparkling wines and maybe even predates Champagne...

However, history says that winemaker Josep Raventós was inspired by the champagne of France and wanted to bring it to Spain. Raventòs founded the Cava region using the traditional methods used in France which we still see in the Cavas we love today.

These myths and shared histories, back and forth inspirations, and claims laid are all part of the exciting story of Catalonia that we'll be sharing with you soon. 
In Naveran's Brut Rosado, they play on the history and ancestry of Spain. The label is a callback to vintage film and theatrical companies.

We know most Cava to be a white sparkling wine, but this is a rosé that brings pinot noir and parellada grapes together for a bright, lively glass. The Naveran family began making wine in 1901 and remains in the family with Michel Guilleron, the grandson of the vineyard's founder Pablo Parellada. Pablo planted the original grape varietals of the vineyard that still bear his name.

The natural parks of Barcelona will always be special to me because of my first trip there. Parks are often thought of being naturally occurring, reflections of the landscape, but in Barcelona they are full of striking designs by Gaudì.

I wanted to see as much as I could on that first trip and didn't want to slow down my exploration, so in the afternoon when the city shut down for a siesta to take a break from the heat – I kept going. It didn't take long to realize I underestimated the heat and found myself looking for shade in those parks and even spending some time under the fountains.

Rosé, the natural way.

This rosé from Catalonia is actually grown in the midst of two different parks and nature conservatories. The winemaking practices are all biodynamic and natural. Winemakers Elena Jiménez and Marta Casas are the women behind this wine. They embrace innovative methods to produce elegant and balanced wines. Their rosé is composed of Grenache, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon producing a robust, colorful wine.

For one night only...

Peregrine will be coming to Juliet. This Tuesday, May 21st Josh and I along with the Peregrine chefs and managers will be presenting a preview of what we'll be bringing to Beacon Hill in the coming weeks. You have to purchase tickets ahead of time which you can do here. Dinner will include a 4-course meal full of inspiration. You may already be thinking of Peregrine as an Italian restaurant...and you aren't wrong. But Peregrine is specifically about the cuisine and culture of Sardinia, and more specifically still, Alghero. Alghero is a city full of Catalonian influence, which will be a part of this evening as well. 

More to come

Thanks for keeping up with us. I'm excited to share what's to come with Catalonia at Juliet as well as what we're planning over at Peregrine. Cuina Catalana starts May 29th (tickets are on sale now) but don't wait until then – stop by soon for a sip of Catalonia, or visit us on Tuesday with tickets to the Peregrine Preview
