The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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 enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.

Fintan is not only kind and charming, he’s also a breathing encyclopedia. He’s got the answers to all questions you can possibly ask and has a great talent to share all his knowledge in a fun engaging way.

The wines you’ll taste are carefully selected and Fintan has a story to tell about each — he lives up to the name ‘Cuentista’ (in the good sense).

I’ve been to a lot of tastings but Fintan’s are my favourite as I always learn lots of fun facts about what I’m drinking.

Thank you, Fintan!

Excellent wine tastings in Barcelona

Fintan puts on a fine wine show if you're in town. The activities vary but as someone who has gone through the extensive WSET training, he knows wine and how to enjoy it with others. Sometimes he'll set up a blind tastings and others there's a focus on a wine region both inside and outside Spain. There are all different sorts of topics to keep people interested. Highly recommended for both locals and visitors!

Thanks for your lovely words, Hudin! Always a pleasure to meet people who love wine and want to explore it further. Hopefully we'll get a chance to share a few more bottles in the future; salud!

Wine made Easy

Fintan was an amazing host. He shared six phenomenal wines while sharing his knowledge of the wines in easy to understand terminology. His approach to wine was refreshing and was not stuffy. As part of the experience at Bottega Maestro, Fintan shared a wonderful charcuterie plate including an amazing jamon. A private wine tasting with Fintan is a must when visiting Barcelona.

Informative, relaxed and tasty!

After checking several wine tasting groups in Barcelona, and being a wine professional myself, I can assure that Wine Cuentista is one of the best value for money tastings in the city, both in quality of the wines and information.
I managed to go to several of his themed tastings and decided to book a Team Building event for my company with him, everything was spot on and flawless, we even organised it in our meetings room. Great activity to boost your employees morale!
Great wines, not the average ones from the supermarket and tasty local charcuterie!

I would recommend you to book it without hesitation!

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

Relaxed and informative wine tasting
Apr 2017 • Solo
Informal wine tasting of 5 or 6 wines, showcasing a topic mostly around Spanish wines. Usually starting off with an entry level, typical wine for the region/grape and progressing to a final taste of a premium product from the same segment. What sets this tasting apart is the great balance of tasting the product, background information, story and socializing. It never feels exhausting like so many tastings do, where everyone pretends to be an expert but at the same time, you will know more about a specific topic in the vast world of wine.

Always a fantastic experience

I discovered Fintan's wine tastings in September last year, and that was definitely a discovery of the year! Fintan keeps them informative, but fun, with a great deal of storytelling about every single bottle and a winemaker behind them. Wines are matched by some delicious food too. Try to come at least once or twice a month, as long as I am luck to grab a seat - they are immensely popular for a reason, so make sure to grab your spot soon!

An unforgettable evening of learning and tasting wine!

Fintan brings the magic of the storytelling of wine to life! He is an expert in wine and his tastings can appeal to connoisseur and novice alike. An intimate of group of no more than 10 people, you will quickly make friends with locals and international visitors alike. Tastings are conducted in English and curated specifically each week. Fintan puts a lot of thought into the tastings and the story they tell. If you are lucky he will bring his homemade empanadas, otherwise a complement of Spanish cheeses and meats is usually on hand. Rest assured your evening with Wine Cuentista will introduce you to some nice wines, greater wine knowledge, new friendships and a treasured Barcelona memory. Salud!!

One of my favourite things to do in BCN

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!
