About Us

Since 2005, Ryan and Gabriella Opaz have shared both their personal and heavily researched stories about Spain and Portugal. Ranging from jaw-dropping culinary experiences to simple off-the-beaten-track adventure stories in tiny Spanish towns, there’s one element that has always remained consistent at Catavino’s core – outstanding food, wine and culture stories.

In 2013, Catavino moved its base from Barcelona to Porto to create a full service DMC (Destination Management Company).

Today, Catavino helps people discover the hidden treasures of Portugal and Spain, through their custom designed tours and experiences specifically related to wine, food and culture. Peruse our tour pages of Portugal and Spain to inspire a the idyllic trip for you, or simply contact us for more information!

If you’re in town, book at tasting at theLAB. Our recently opened space features an artisanal wine shop, art gallery, event space and tasting room located on the vibrant street of Rua do Bonjardim in Porto. This dynamic place was designed to leave pretension at the door in lieu of new ideas, radical flavors, and powerful communities! Consider it your cozy corner space to meet new people, try new wines, and to learn a thing or two about Portuguese culture. Find out more about our wine tastings including our Introduction to Portuguese Wine, our Natural Wine Tasting, or better yet, create a Custom Private Wine Tasting just for you!
