I like to welcome my guests with a glass of delicious sparkling wine. This is very typical to Barcelona as a gesture to receive someone. We then proceed to the tasting which consists of three different wines. I also serve you local and regional cheese and cured meats from small, family-run producers. You're not going to find any of this at the supermarket! Apart from enjoying the wine I want you to learn a handfull of practical tips that you can use at your next visit to a wine store or restaurant. Its important that nobody feels intimidated to ask questions and I like to interact with my guests, rather than giving a lecture. Remember; wine is about having a good time! All this wine talk tends to make people hungry and that’s when we bring out our selection of artisan cheese and cured meats. You will taste two types of cheese and two cured meats accompanied by quality crackers. We only work with small scale producers and put a lot of time into finding the very best quality. We have a preference for locally sourced produce and knowing how it’s been made and by whom. Our goal is to give you an exclusive and local experience that will enrich your visit to Barcelona!
Hi, I'm Chris and I 'm the owner of Wine Secrets Barcelona! I'm originally from Norway, but have been living in the US, Sweden and Switzerland before I settled in Barcelona almost 20 years ago. My love for good food and drink comes from my Mom's kitchen. Still, it was not until a career change in 2008 - when I changed politics for wine! - that wine became not only my passion, but also my job. I first turned a neighborhood convenience store into what is today one of the best wine stores in Barcelona and now I'm using my knowledge about Spanish wine and my contacts among wine makers to offer private wine tastings and food pairings for individuals and company groups. At our wine events I keep an informal feel because wine should fun!
One glass of cava reserva and three glasses of wine, all from high quality wine makers. Then I'll serve you two cheeses and…
All of the wine tasting experience take place in our beautiful space located on a hidden little street in the charming neighbourhood of Gràcia in the heart of Barcelona. I will receive you at the front door and welcome you inside.
