El Molí Wine Tastings

Paddy Mannion, sommelier and wine scribe, has been discovering and presenting the wines and bodegas of Catalunya for 20 years. Our encounters with the fruit of Baccus deal with tasting technique, methods of production, grape varieties and the stories behind the wine-makers and great brews that are bursting out of historic Southern Catalunya wine country.

Big whites, rouge rosés, daring cavas and decadent reds, …rarely, will you find a country as rich in wine-making tradition and diversity of styles as Catalunya. Our wine-tastings demonstrate the variety and quality of wines from Penedes to Priorat and from the Terra Alta to Costers de Segre.
