Not only did I enjoy excellent Catalan wines and an incredible cheese board, but I also learned a lot about Catalan wine: its origin, history, differences, fermentation processes, and cultural significance. I'm eagerly anticipating the next tasting with Wine Fantasy Barcelona because I won't miss it. I highly recommend it to both inexperienced individuals like me and experts looking to deepen their knowledge. Thank you so much for the unforgettable experience! 10/10.

I’ve had the pleasure of attending a few of Gabby’s wine tasting events and highly recommend. Gabby is passionate about wine and shares so much knowledge about a wide range of varieties, their methods of production and pairings. Her events always strike a nice balance between traditional wines as well as novel/lesser known wines and there’s always a great discussion with each glass!Can’t wait for the next event!

Gabby

Hi, my name is Gabby, a South African living in Barcelona. Wine has always been a great love of mine and I’ve traveled the world to drink the best wine I could find, a little crazy but it’s true! I am also passionate about visiting as many wineries and vineyards as possible – a cellar view never gets old – and I’m the first to book a wine experience when visiting a new city.
I’ve studied and lived in many countries around the world, and now call Barcelona my home. I have a deep fondness for Catalonia in general and the Penedès wine region in particular, which is rapidly becoming a really well-known winemaking region. Many younger producers are now making waves in this traditional industry, and it’s an exciting place to be.
Here at Wine Fantasy Barcelona we’re all about wine, and I can’t wait to share my love of wine with you. Join me for an exclusive tasting experience in one of Barcelona’s trendy wine stores, or take a vineyard tour with me. Our focus is the wine made right here in Catalonia, and I can’t wait to share a piece of the Penedès with you.
