In 2005, Ryan and Gabriella Opaz packed their bags and moved to Spain based on a dream – to buy a vineyard and live the cinematic European lifestyle. And though the romantic vineyard didn’t come into fruition, they chose the next best thing, to share their Spanish and Portuguese wine, food and cultural experiences through Catavino.net.
Today, this dynamic American couple lives in Porto with their 2 year old son, hosting luxurious, custom designed gourmet experiences throughout Portugal and Spain.
“This trip was incredible. The team at Catavino put together a love letter to Porto and the Douro and allowed us to share it with them.” – Bill Bennett, 2015 Harvest Tour

“It’s not easy to plan a wine trip, especially for a group that expects a high level of wine communication, education, and experience. Ryan Opaz and the team at Catavino exceeded all expectations in my first visit to the Douro. The knowledge base they represented, the contacts they have, and the professionalism they exhibited is of the highest caliber. Beyond that, and possibly most importantly, Ryan was simply a blast to travel with.” – Jason Kallsen, Twin Cities Wine Education LLC
