Meet Mireia, Your Native Sherpa
Mireia, born and raised in Girona, uses her background as a sommelier to share with her guests the love of wine and food from the Catalan region. Anyone choosing to wine and dine with Mireia will learn all sorts of wonderful things about the culinary secrets of Barcelona and Girona. Here, food and wine tours are a particular treat, as Mireia is able to weave together interesting stories about the historical and mistical nature of the food and wine being served.
My wife and I went on the Evening Wine Tasting tour with Mireia during our honeymoon in July ’17. Mireia was engaging and provided a lot of knowledge about the wines and different tasting notes we experienced. We had an ample amount of great wine and Tapas!

Vi ville gerne se lidt af Barcelona og prøve nogle lokale vine og noget ordentligt tapas. Vores guide var meget nærværende og imødekomme, hvilket gjorde turen meget som at være ude med en ven der havde på hvor vi skulle hen.
Vi vil gøre det igen bare for selskabet skyld.

Fantastic Wine and Tapas Tour!
My wife and I did the afternoon wine and tapas tour in old Barcelona with Mireia last week. We had a wonderful time, and would highly recommend it to anyone! Barcelona was at the end of our 10 day trip through Spain, but Mireia’s knowledge and planning ensured we were still learning new things, trying new foods, and seeing new parts of the city. We learned more about Spanish wine from Mireia than on the whole rest of our trip combined. She can talk through technical questions about the wine making process if you like, but she also hosts a great tasting that lets you focus on sampling and comparing great wines. Her selection of tapas bars to stop in during our tour was perfect, taking us to a couple of small, truly local places that had great food, and that we never would have found on our own. Mireia herself was an absolute pleasure to meet and spend time with in the city, and made sure that our whole night was memorable.
