Welcome to Maestrazgo Wine Club!
My name is Fintan Kerr; wine lover, student of wine and founder of Wine Cuentista. Thank-you for visiting! I created this group based on a long held belief: that every wine has a story worth telling and that the best way to share this was through informal, fun and informative wine tastings. Spain is a wonderful country for wine drinkers with a huge variety of different wine producing regions, styles and new innovative wine-makers in balance with a wealth of tradition and history. A country with, to quote Jancis Robinson MW, "new stars fizzling and crackling everywhere" is a country for experienced wine lovers and beginners alike. Based in the old-city district of Borne in central Barcelona, my goal is to share my experience and knowledge in a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere and have fun sharing high quality wines with you all. Maestrazgo Wine Club is aimed towards people living in or visiting Barcelona who want to learn a little more about the incredible wines of Spain, share a few glasses of great wine and meet new friends. Join us, come along for a tasting and get ready to be amazed by the quality and value of Spanish wine!
Our tastings take place in a tasting room attached to the charming and bohemian Bodega Maestrazgo, owned by the irrepressible Jose. This wine shop has been in Jose's family for 3 generations and he very kindly allows us to not only base our tastings here but often offers discounts on the wines we taste, which is fantastic news for all wine lovers in Barcelona! The tastings are delivered in English although we will on occasion invite local winemakers and winery owners to introduce themselves and their projects in both English and Spanish.
