"Drinking good wine with good food in good company is one of life's most civilized pleasures." Michael Broadbent MW
My first wine tasting experience was a pivotal moment in my own life. It was a rare evening in Barcelona; torrential rain, thunder and lightning meant we had the entire shop to ourselves and the owners undivided attention. By the end of the evening I had been completely blown away by the sheer scale, complexity and beauty of the wine industry as it unfolded in front of me. How can such subtle differences make such a big impact on the flavour, structure and style of a drink? How is it that wines change so unpredictably as they age? Why have I never drank this before? Since then, I've never looked back and I'm delighted to offer Wine Tasting in Barcelona to anyone looking for a fun evening, filled with wine and good times!

A Spanish Wine Experience!
From the cool, green coasts of Galicia to the baking hot sands of Andalucia, Spain has been producing wine for thousands of years in a variety of different styles. Crisp, fresh Albariño from Rias Baixas; heady, exotic Tempranillo from Rioja; vibrant, refreshing Cava and powerful, brooding Garnatxa from Priorat are just some of the more famous regions and styles being produced in this truly diverse and exciting country. There's never been a better time to drink and learn about Spanish wine, so let's dive right in!
What's included? A full wine tasting led by a WSET qualified wine professional (Me!) who specialises in the wonderful world of Spanish wine. The tasting will include 5 premium wines, a selection of delicious cold tapas, water and exclusive access to a private tasting room in the beautiful area of the Born, in the heart of the Barcelona city center.
Where is it? Our tasting room is located within a 5 minute walk from three Metro stations; Jaume I (L4), Urquinaona (L1, L4) and Arc D'Triumf (L1), in Santa Caterina, a charming neighbourhood so named after the local market. It's a 10 minute walk from the old neighbourhood of the Born, Las Ramblas and the Gotic quarter. For Google Maps, please click here.
How much does it cost? The price is 50 euros per person with everything included for groups of 5 persons or more. For smaller groups, please note that this price will be higher and depends on the size of the group. This includes a 21% sales tax that is mandatory here in Spain, so no hidden charges!
What's the duration? The tasting experience will last roughly 2 hours. At the end of the tasting, you'll be walked to the nearest metro stop, taxi or a point of local interest should you wish to continue your day in true Spanish style!

What do people say about the tastings?
"What a great night! Fintan has a real and rare knack of taking you on a wine journey with him. I have been to a few wine tastings now and every time I can't believe where the time goes! He is interesting and informative and obviously loves his subject. I can thoroughly recommend these wine tastings if you are looking for something a bit different." Gillod - Tripadvisor
