The lady who hosted was lovely and the Wine and cheese was so tasty. She clearly knew her stuff and her English was bloody brilliant! We just wished we could have bought some bottles from her wine collection to take home to share with family and friends and also to support her business. The restaurant where the tasting was held itself was not so great. We went upstairs above the wine tasting as recommended but were met with rude staff who brought tapas type snacks to our table which we assumed was complimentary or pay after since we hadn’t been served menus or anything after ordering wine. The waiter then came back and was rude and unpleasant to say the least and took away 1 of the 3 plates and told us we should not have eaten the food as it was for someone else. We had no idea it was not for us and thought it was dealt with so unprofessionally. Aside from this the wine tasting experience was a delight! Thank you

This was one of the best wine tastings I have ever been to. Vivian, our host and sommelier, was very informative. She chose some excellent wines to feature (Cava, two whites, and two reds) that gave you a great feeling for what Spanish wines have to offer. We also did the cheese paring, and they were amazing as well. After the tasting, we talked with her a little more and got some great recommendations for other brands that would fit our personal tastes. I highly recommend this tour; exceptional value for what was offered.
