Time Out Wine Tasting
Traveling around Catalonia throughout its wine, its vineyards and its wineries. From north to south and west to east, with this Catalan wine tasting you will discover the terroir that makes Catalan wines so special and unique. You will learn which are the typical Catalan wine styles and which are the new tendencies. Each and everyone of the wines tasted will come from small producers, whom with love and respect work their lands in organic ways. Winemakers whose lives we will unravel. Where? La Festival is the fashionable wine shop from Barcelona in the heart of Gracia neighbourhood. They understand wine as a party and believe that the culture of bulk wine can be also healthy. Because of that, they have 10 jets with organic wines, biodynamic and natural from different terroirs of Catalonia. In addition, the store features a selection of bottled wines with over 500 references of different winemakers. They do not want customers, they want friends who want to be part of the wine festival. The sommeliers Ludo - After a long and intense experience in the world of wine, Ludo opened in 2012 HumanVins, a small and independent agency to negotiate wine, and today is divided between the management of his own business and La Festival, the shop he runs with other partners. He received his Sommelier diploma in Loira where he was born, and he has also done different wine courses in Barcelona about catalan wines. Patrícia - She holds the WSET Advanced Certificate in Wines and Spirits.
