Wines of Catalunya
Posted December 26th, 2012 - 1:11 pm by from Auckland, New Zealand (Permalink)
To all those interested in booze. I'm hosting a wine tasting this Friday 28th.

https://www.couchsurfing.org/activity/view/K4HG8A/wines-of-catalunya

We'll taste 7 different wines from the Catalunya region of differing styles in a casual, easy-going nature. It will cost 10 euros p/p to cover the costs of the wines.

I am a wine writer with a sommelier background from New Zealand

If you wanna know more, give me a shout or check out the FB page: https://www.facebook.com/noshitwine

Cheers,

Mu.

Hey Mu!

Your wine-tasting sounds great! We used to organise wine-tasting parties at home, now it would have been sweet to taste some Catalunyan wines in Barcelona!

Unfortunately, my Kiwi girlfriend and I won't be in Barcelona tonight - we'll arrive tomorrow morning :-(

Well, enjoy that wine-tasting ;-)

Hey Jey!

That's a shame about the timing! However, I will be hosting another tasting on Wednesday, Jan 2nd if you are still in town.

Check out the FB page for more info: https://www.facebook.com/noshitwine

If not, we could always meet up to drink some wine together!

Hey Mu!

Haha you really don't want us to taste those wines! We're leaving Barcelona on the 1st!

Like you said, it's a shame about the timing! Maybe you could tell us where to go in Barcelona to taste some good local wines?

Cheers,

Jey

hey,

I used to do wine parties with some friends in California, US. I will not be in Barcelona until Jan 10th. And as Jey have mentioned, let us know where to go to drink some good local wines. I also am planning to bring a bottle or two of California wine on my trip so if you're interested in tasting some California wine, let me know. Cheers. David

Hey Jey,

It seems it was not meant to be, or was it? I had a group cancel for last nights tasting meaning I have plenty of all the wines that were on show if you want to taste them today.

I have a terrace in the building I live so we could make it an outdoor event on this glorious winters day!

Let me know.

There's a great wine-bar called Monviníc on Carrer Diputació (the same street I live on) - they open 50 different bottles a day to sample by the glass!

Hey Mu,

We don't have easy wifi access so we only saw your message now!
Your plan sounds good to us, let us know if you're still keen to meet up.
My phone number is +33 6 73 17 16 37.
Just so you know, we've got a little dude in a wheelchair with us (a 9 year old boy), so we're limited to places without too many obstacles.
Cheers,
Jeremy

Hi Mu,
I missed yesterday tasting as I have found your couchsurfing event just now. Would be interested in the one next Wednesday.
What wines do you want to taste? Can I join the tasting group :)

Hi Mu,

5 pm is too early for me :(
Hope for next one I'll be more lucky

Happy New Year to you too!

Hmmm, I'm starting to get a bit of feedback that 5pm may be a little too early. How would 7 or 8pm suit?
