Had a fantastic time with Fin. He really knows his stuff, not just about Spanish wines but about all wines. He was great fun, down to earth but a true expert who is passionate about what he does. Without doubt we'll see him again

I was lucky enough to stumble upon Fintan's wine tasting the very first weekend I moved to BCN and have been a regular ever since. Great atmosphere, delicious wine and Fintan does a really great job at hosting. I definitely recommend checking this out!

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually

places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
