Since I met Claartje (owner of Blend and bottled), on Instagram a few years ago it was my goal to join one of her wine classes in Barcelona! Which I did, two years ago, together with my sister and we had an amazing experience. Claartje has her own unique way to take you into the interesting world of Spanish wine, while not losing sight of enjoying the wine itself, tasty food pairings and the social character of her classes. Since I enjoyed it so much I wanted to visit Claartje again last October in Spain, when I found out she was just moving back to Curaçao. So as soon as I read the announcement of the online wine tasting classes I thought this is my ultimate chance to still join my favorite wine class and signed up immediately. I’m definitely sharing our mutual love for Spain and Spanish wines! In these difficult times there’s so much we miss however it’s also bringing unique opportunities like joining my beloved wine tasting classes online. Since then I already followed 4 wine class tastings, focusing on Spanish red and white wine, Cava and Sherry. The last class focused on two rather unknown wine area’s, Priorat and Montsant. Which are ranking high on my travel wish list. Each of these classes were a unique journey and way worth to join. With Claartje’s enormous enthusiasm and great knowledge about Spanish wines she made me almost forget I’m not live at her table. The wine tastings gave me the opportunity to learn new things about these wines and to socialize with people who share the same love of wine and experience the pleasure of drinking a good glass together. Each class is about 90 minutes but often we went overtime because there was so much to tell, smell and share together 😀The class itself only costs €10,- and includes a hand out, map, aroma wheel and tasting notes. I’m hoping for many more virtual wine class tastings since it’s a fun and dynamic experience and enables you to have these interesting social interaction. Salud! Sylvia, Amsterdam

We had a wonderful setup with a pretry ambience. Claire made an extra effort and accommodated our 5 yr olds ( 3 of them) with juices and snacks. It was an elegant setup and the host was very friendly patient and warm. Fun evening to spend with friends and enjoy good wines..We learnt a lot and were pleasantly surprised by the variety on taste. Also her romesco dip on the side was a big hit and not to be missed! Highly recommend this is an intro to the world of Spanish wine

A superb wine tasting experience- I can't recommend it enough! The setting is beautiful, relaxing and stylish. My group and I enjoyed a 2 hours tasting and we all loved it. It was so interesting to find out about Spanish wine and of course it was delicious! as well as the cheese and meat platter Claartje chose for us. She was lovely and created such a nice atmosphere. It was the perfect thing to do on our hen weekend.

What a beautiful tasting space, comfortable, stylish and homey at the same time. Very informative and fun. I went to a group tasting event the last time I was in Barcelona and this second time did not disappoint! Wines that represented some of the Spanish regions were selected but they were all special and unique which made the tasting really fun in addition to being a learning experience. The accompanying cheese and meat platter was well selected and tasty! Thanks again!!
