Johan Franco Cereceda and Michael Anderquim of Vinguiden guide visit DO Cava

The Wines from Spain mission is a joint project with the Spanish Economic and Commercial Office in Stockholm and Designation of Origin Cava, created to provide two Swedish wine experts with an in-depth look at some of the many wineries and wines of DO Cava.

Its two recipients are journalist Johan Franco Cereceda, the editor-in-chief of prestigious online wine journal Vinguiden.se who is also considered the foremost expert on Spanish wines in Sweden. He will be accompanied by the promotional director and sommelier of Vinguiden.se, Michael Anderquim. This visit comes at the perfect time for this site, which has manifested a commitment to Cava-related content in 2018, with particular emphasis on the new Single-Estate Cava wines, which will be the subject of a special tasting that Vinguiden.se will be hosting this coming April.

The five-day visit began yesterday, with the arrival of the wine experts in Barcelona.
