Where you'll be

Oft missed by visitors, my home neighborhood of Poble Sec is known locally for its buzzing bars, excellent restaurants, and down-to-earth vibe. From the chic and modern to bustling family-run establishments, we'll experience three wine bars and shops, each with its own unique atmosphere.

Alice was delightful, knowledgeable and informative about Barcelona and wine. We visited several "local" spots with her and highly recommend her "Swish & Savor" to others--it is not something packaged by a company, but a much more personal experience that added greatly to our Barcelona vacation. We learned a bit about wine, a bit about the city, and saw a different part of Barcelona most visitors do not see. Great fun!

Alice was incredible in every facet. She was personable, friendly with the staff at the restaurants, and really well-versed. We had a laugh the entire time and she was INCREDIBLY easy to talk to. She even gave us some ideas of what to do after (which we followed, oh my gosh what an amazing place she sent us to) AND messaged me some ideas for wine shops (which I never answered because of a wine hangover, I'm sorry Alice). You absolutely MUST do this, it's such a lovely experience with a truly lovely person.

Alice was very nice and well informed. She was wonderful to chat with, gave great advice about the city, and taught us so much about wine! We felt much more informed as we ordered at restaurants throughout our trip. Gracias!

Alice nos llevó a 3 bares diferentes entre los barrios de Sant Antoni i el Poble Sec donde catamos 3 vinos diferentes. Nos explicó características de los vinos catalanes y un poco de la historias y constumbres de Barcelona. En los dos últimos bares picamos algopara acompañar a los vinos.
