2022 was the year of catching up. It started in a flurry of wine webinars. A chance to get up close to winemakers, but, thanks to zoom, not that close.
When travel did begin, it resulted in almost back-to-back wine fairs. Meanwhile in 2019 and 2021 a number of wineries had missed important anniversaries owing to the lockdowns.

As a result this year I had the privilege of enjoying a striking number of historical vertical tastings. Plus it was the year of new discoveries.
Into that category fell Bodegas Tamerán, the new winery on Gran Canaria from footballing icon David Silva, and Suertes del Marqués Jonatán García (Tenerife).
