ABOUT US

Taca de vi is a labour of love started by two young enthusiasts from Barcelona that share an unbridled passion for goodwine

Enric Català

A sommelier by profession, Enric’s mission is to demystify the world of wine and bring it into people’s lives for them to enjoy without fear.

Like so many sommeliers before him, Enric’s relationship with wine began while working in a London restaurant. That was years ago. At the time, all he knew about wine was what it smelt like wine, what else? Long story short, with patience and a tremendous ability to teach, the head sommelier from the restaurant and the great wine atmosphere she inspired, hooked the young waiter to this culture and never left it since then.

Now back in Barcelona, Enric dedicates himself to tasting hundreds of wines, visiting wineries, reading books, blogs, attending tastings, sniffing everything and annoying everyone with questions. Wine creates nonconformity, no one ever knows enough!

The three decisive steps that sealed his sommelier fate, were his time at Cellers Avgvstvs Forvm, Vila Viniteca and, finally, studying for his Sommelier qualifiaction. Three opportunities to learn and communicate: Enric took the best of each case, he swirled it well and came away with Taca de vi in 2011.
Because wine must be enjoyed with good company!

    review rating 5  Muy buena opción para festejar un cumpleaños de manera distinta. La verdad es que en nuestro caso la cata fue un gran éxito! Las 2 horas pasaron muy rápido y Enric nos dio mucha información y contestó a las mil preguntas que le íbamos haciendo con la mejor disposición. Todos quedamos encantados y hasta seguían los comentarios al día siguiente. Muchas gracias! Victoria

    review rating 5  We did a visit to Priorat with Enrico Catala. The experience was just terrific. Enrico is very knowledgeable and made the wine tasting a very unique event. We visited two wineries in Priorat ; MarcoAbella and Clos Figueres, both vists were fantastic, personable and very enjoyable. I strongly recommend this wine tour company. I can’t wait to go back and visit with Enrico other wineries in Priorat and Penedes.
