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  Una experiencia muy divertida. Lo regalamos y pasamos muy buen rato. Enric nos hizo una cata a domicilio de 4 vinos y un cava. Él es muy amable y la cata nos interesó a pesar de no entender de vinos. Muy cómodo que venga a casa y traiga todo el material. 100% recomendable
