      8/10
      This experience was super fun and full of information & lovely wines & foods! The only downside was that the atmosphere was very quiet and all the guests around the table were whispering as there was no background music etc. Would be a 10/10 if there was a bit more entertainment/ music to liven it up!

      Must go
      So we experienced terrible flooding and bad rain the night we were supposed to come for a wine & cheese tasting. We were unable to find a cab to bring us and I was so sad we were going to miss this experience. Needless to say we walked in the rain and were 20mins late and they still accommodated us and we had a wonderful private tasting with the most delicious wines, Cava and cheese. This place is a hidden gem and the staff is top notch. Will definitely return when in the area.

      Vacations need local wine tasting
      This wine tasting experience was wonderful! We learned a lot about Spain’s regional wine production and wine tasting. My friend and I don’t have much experience in wine tasting so this was definitely an educational and great experience! Our host was very knowledgable and created a fun and interactive time for our group. The wines selected and the food pairing options were delicious and interesting. Really loved our time and would definitely recommend to others. Thank you so much for making our trip to Barcelona all the more memorable!!

      Fantastic tasting
      The host on our session was brilliant, so friendly and really knew his stuff. It was a great introduction to Spanish wines and portions were good as well. Bar was lovely we stayed for another two drinks downstairs afterwards and the other wines we tried were all great, the bar staff was really nice as well.

      Great wine bar in El Born
      We wanted to do a wine tasting at a local place and came across Vivinos. It took us a while to find it, and when we got there we found out that we missed the 6pm wine tasting. We thought we would just taste a few wines on our own by ordering by the glass. We were very fortunate that Freya was there. She made several recommendations of wine and tapas for us. She had a lot of knowledge about the wines and was happy to share her time with us. Thank you for making our visit to the wine bar memorable. I would highly recommend this off the beaten path wine bar!

      Very nice, would recommend
      Very nice host and we learned some interesting things about Spanish wines. We tried one cava, two whites and two red wines, received a board with sausage, olives and cheese and got water. For us the tasting was a bit too fast. We were given a wine to try and very soon got the next one. Apart from that we were very happy and still would recommend the tasting.

      Jamon and wine tasting
      Five of us had a jamon and wine tasting which was absolutely wonderful. Vivian, the owner, gave an overview of the hams and wines tasted. She was very personable and knowledgeable, answering everyone’s questions as she guided us through the pairings. We would highly recommend this experience and look forward to returning for one of the other tastings offered.

    This is for a review from October 2019. The tasting experience was fantastic. It was a relaxed environment, good information about the wines in the region, delicious wine and cheeses. Had such a great time that I decided to buy a case of wine. It’s been a year, never received the wines. Emailed multiple times. I received a response saying it had been mailed and she would follow up. I never heard back from the shop owner Vivian after multiple follow ups. By the time, I wasn’t able to contest the charge with my credit card company.

    Thank you for your review, we regret you had a bad experience with your shipment. We are sorry to say that we had a series of incidences with the company shipping our wines to the states, leading to long delays and finally some cancelations of the shipping. We have reimbursed all clients affected by this and suspended shipping wines since to avoid any further incidences. Please accept our deepest apologies, we hope to make it up to you on your next visit to Barcelona!

    Such a beautiful place, we were in town for a couples holiday and did the tasting to get to know more about the local food culture. Wine and food is super important here. The staff were super friendly and knowledgeable and we met so many nice people in the group. Great way to make some holiday friends. I’d recommend it also if you are single in town.

    Cancelled our wine tasting on the day by text with only a few hours notice. Very poor service, promised to give a refund but not given. Others have suffered the same fate so please be careful - they will take your money!!!

    Hello Emma, Thank you for your review. I had to cancel due to sickness and since we are a small business and want to ensure a high quality service, we preferred to cancel than leave you with a lesser service. You write this review 24 hours after the cancelation, even though I send you the confirmation of the reimbursement of your 10 € deposit. In order to show on your credit card it takes 2-5 business days. I hope to receive you on your next visit in Barcelona and change your mind about my experience.

    Vivian was lovely, really warm and friendly and made us feel right at home. The wines we tasted were delicious - particularly the white rioja - and then they were all topped up again for us to enjoy them with very generous quantities of delicious cheese. All in all a very relaxed, fun evening, thank you.

    We attended a wine and cheese tasting in early June while on vacation. The tasting itself was great - nice wines and pairings and an informative hostess in a nice wine shop. Having enjoyed the experience we felt comfortable ordering wine for shipping home to the U.S. We ordered over $800 of wine and were told it would get to us within the month.Two months later and the wine is a no-show.

    We contacted the wine shop and they say the wine shipped so they would check with their shipper and get back to us ASAP. A week transpires and no word from Vivinos. During that time we contacted them to ask for the shipping company name and tracking number; no answer. We asked them to simply cancel the transaction and refund our money; no answer. We're now left with trying to dispute the charge through the credit card company. Foreign visitors beware....

    We had a really great experience on the wine tasting, but we ordered two cases of wine and had a really poor experience after our honeymoon. We were told the wine would arrive in three weeks, but really it arrived in almost 4 months (yes, months) with very little communication from Vivian. The wine tasting was really awesome, definitely one of our favorite experiences on our honeymoon. Sadly, the lack of communication and transparency from the shop about the cases we purchased soured experience a little bit. Overall, my husband and I would recommend you try the wine tasting, but don’t order any wine to be shipped back home. Vivian was awesome on the tasting, and it was a fun and educational way to learn more about wine!

    We were staying in Barcelona for a week and wanted to do some wine tasting and this seemed a good option—one location, right time of day before dinner, and in an interesting location. All of our expectations were exceeded. Our host was charming, highly knowledgeable, patient with two very late guests, able to adapt for the group of nine’s variety of wine expertise and preferences. We tasted a cava, two whites, and two reds and in the process learned a lot about Spain’s wine regions. The cheese was very tasty, too. Highly recommended.

    We went here with a few friends to celebrate one of the birthdays, and we enjoyed every minute so much! The owner, who gave us the tasting, is great! She knows how to keep the tasting entertaining, as well as full of experience! It is amazing when someone has such a great passion and knowledge, to feel like you really learn authentic/exclusive wines! For me aromas of the wines are hard, but Vivian really helped to give tips about this! Also I think the different wines and cheeses we tasted were perfectly chosen, and they were all so different but so good! Luckily we bought a few bottles to have some after tasting at home and enjoy some more Spanish wines! If you like (Spanish) wines as well as food, and want to do something different that doesn’t take long, go and do a tasting here! You won’t regret it!

    Good teacher- he provided a fluent explanation of the wines, what to look out for when having wines and the session was very stimulating and interactive.
    We explored tastes, look and suggestions for what meal the wine would be best suited.
    The shop is easy to find no matter where you are coming from, the shop is nice, clean and spacious.
    Best part- Finding out where the wines are made, the history of wine and tasting the wines with different cheeses.
    I had such a good time and i would highly recommend people to attend here.

    If you're interested in learning more about Spanish wines, tasting 5 outstanding examples, and pairing with fabulous Spanish cheeses, this activity is for you. The instructor was excellent - she really knows her wine, wine regions, history and is fun and passionate about wine. She was very open to any and all questions and eager to provide us with the opportunity to understand the subtle differences in the wines we tasted. I would highly recommend this class!
