In 2008 I bought what was then a run-of-the-mill neighborhood convenience store with the objective of turning it into a wine store and delicatessen. Today Bodega Bonavista is an undeniable benchmark in Barcelona for quality wine, cheese, cured meats and other delicatessen, both to enjoy there and to go.
In Spring 2018 I decided that the time had come to move on and dedicate myself completely to my new business: Wine Secrets Barcelona. During my time at Bodega Bonavista I learned a tremendous amount about Spanish wines and formed an extensive network of contacts among Spanish wine makers, enologists and other people in the wine sector. At the same time I became aware of the impression that many people in other countries have of Spanish wine as being heavily oaked and one-dimensional. An impression that is very far from reality. An impression that I want to help change.
