Why "Wine Cuentista"?
Wine: Our beloved, fermented grape juice
Cuentista: Spanish for 'story-teller'
Wine Cuentista: A website dedicated to exploring and sharing the wonderful world of wine
Welcome to Wine Cuentista. My name is Fintan Kerr; wine lover, student of wine and founder of Wine Cuentista. Thank you for visiting!
I created this website based on a long held belief: that wine has a story worth telling and that the best way to share this was through informal, fun and informative wine tastings. Spain in particular is a beautiful country for wine drinkers with a huge variety of different wine producing regions, styles and new innovative wine-makers in balance with a wealth of tradition and history. A country with, to quote Jancis Robinson MW, "new stars fizzling and crackling everywhere" is a country for experienced wine lovers and beginners alike.
Whether you're here to experience wine through the blog, the available articles or through a wine tasting in central Barcelona, I am at your disposal. Feel free to get in touch through our contact page or through social media; I'm always happy to meet fellow wine lovers and I'd love to hear from you!
I hope to see you soon!
Since moving to Barcelona in 2011, I've slowly but surely fallen in love with Spanish wine; quite a common affliction, it turns out! Education is important to me and so I am qualified to an advanced level with the WSET and I'm currently studying my Diploma certification through their school in London, as well as working seasonally in local bodegas and vineyards for practical experience, as well as judging bi-annually with the IWC. I spend most of my time studying, visiting wineries and sipping my way around the world of wine in between wine tastings, tours, events and blind tastings!
