Media Dream Team to Pop 50 Great Cavas

50 Great Cavas 2014 Media TripA Dream Team  of 6 influential writers and photographers will soon be descending on the Penedès wine region to discover some of the 50 Great Cavas 2014. They will be visiting wineries, matching cavas with local delicacies such as Fideua, Calçotada, Xató del Vendrell, Escalibada con arenque y uva, Cazuela marinera de sepia con albóndigas, Meloso de cerdo ibérico con salsa de Ànima, Bacalao con espinacas a la Catalana y “All i Oli” de miel, Gallo del Penedès con ciruelas y piñones (is your mouth watering yet?)  and taking time out to discover Museums and other places of cultural interest. Accommodation  options in the region will also be tried and tested ranging from romantic rural accommodations to charming 4* accommodation

There will be non-stop Instagramming from the photographers and Tweeting from the writers. Numerous print based articles around the world are expected to feature the 50 Great Cava tour. The Dream Team will also be joined by Oriol Ripoll, Director of Online Wine Shop Decántalo. Follow events on twitter #50gc #cava #penedes #enoturismo
