The Palm Beach Post (Nov. 8, 2011)
Tapas! Tapas! Tapas! A party of delicious little plates inspired by the small bites of Barcelona: "We tested six different sparkling wines for this story and the Gran Pasión was our favorite by a landslide. While most Cava tends to be fairly light and simple, this one had a bit more complexity than the rest."

Creative Loafing Tampa (Sept. 9, 2011)
Tampa-based wine maker Paul Clear believes the best Florida wines come from … Spain.
"A sparkler, Grand Pasion Brut Reserva, is fruity and light. Lovely. And at around $10 a bottle, it's criminally inexpensive. It's now his most popular wine."

Paul's Wine of the Week on South Tampa-HydePark Patch (Sept. 1, 2011)

TampaWineWoman's Blog (Aug. 29, 2011)
"Careful cultivation of this varietal allow the Lobetia Viognier to maintain a wonderful palate of luscious late summer fruit and flowers, while keeping the alcohol level low enough to provide amazing balance. This wine offers a 'farmstand freshness' due to the harmonious balance of acidity. It's delicious and affordable..."

"The Lobetia Viognier 2010 shows citrus and peach tones balanced with floral aromas and a taste of honeysuckle on the palate... The butterfly mosaic gracing the label adds to its charm."

Watermarkonline.com (March 23, 2011)
Tampa man’s wine is ‘best buy'
"Who knew we had such amazing wine makers right here in Tampa Bay? But apparently Tampa’s Paul Clear is one to watch."

Winexposed.com (March 19, 2011)
Winexposed.com's Larry reviews and recommends Gran Pasión Cava.
"This is nice and light and crisp and refreshing... for a sparkling wine this is a nice every day sparkling wine  that I would definitely recommend."

Ruby's Elixir: Creative Cocktails in a Speakeasy-Style Setting
"The bar also offers about a dozen craft beers on draft and a nice selection of wines including my favorites by Tampa winemaker and Terroir Wine Cellars owner Paul Clear..."

Seminole Heights Patch (January 6, 2011)
The Scene Gets Independent
"However, I have to admit that I was tempted to sway from the beer collection to order from the wine list when I saw Palarea, made by my favorite Tampa winemaker, Terroir Wine Cellars. It's the perfect blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah without any pretension."

The Tampa Tribune (December 31, 2010)
What You Need To Know Before You Buy Your Champagne
"Eason also recommends a Tampa-based winemaker, Paul Clear, and his "Gran Pasión" -- yes, only one 's' -- which she calls light bodied, strawberry and fruity. About $12."

Sparkling wine review: Gran Pasión Brut Cava
"I will admit I’m biased… this Spanish sparkler is made by a friend of mine, Paul Clear, who lives in Tampa. But he became my friend after I tasted his wines..."

Miami Herald (December 9, 2010)
South Florida sparkle
"Sparkling wine is a bubble bath for your palate. It can refresh like beer and inspire like a Miami sunset. It’s popping up from the most unexpected regions — and can complement the most unexpected foods."

Winexposed.com (September 13, 2010)
Winexposed.com's Larry reviews Palarea CMS.
"Real nice wine. Real nice. This is medium to full-bodied... It's very smooth, really well balanced."
