What a treat this was! We had so much fun at the winery it was more than I expected. We were treated to a tasting of several varieties of wine, in addition to making a delicious salad and paella. We also had a bonus risotto, as someone on our visit was vegetarian. We left full, tipsy, and very happy! I would recommend this again for sure!
We were in Spain for 2 weeks and this is my favorite thing we did on the whole trip. Amazing food in a beautiful setting with wonderful people. It was just a magical day. Book this one. I will definitely do it again on my next trip to Barcelona.
Views & Paella
This was a really fun class. Everyone in the group was in a good mood, probably because the food and views were so good. Teacher was great and local.
