It is now easier than ever to stock up on wines and spirits in Barcelona too.
No12 fine Wines and Provisions is now fully geared up in Barcelona to supply yachts in Port Vell and Port Tarragona. Wine-specialist Bence Szabo is running the operation in Barcelona from the perfectly located OneCoWork office space situated in the middle of Port Vell since December 2017.
‘We want to build on our success in Mallorca. The main marina in Barcelona is offering state-of-the-art yachting facilities and I am sure Barcelona will continue to grow from strength to strength. Due to the close proximity to Mallorca, where we have established a good network of partners, we can collaborate with tried and tested professionals, allowing us to continue providing the level of service we are known for ’ explains No12 Wines General Manager Andrew Azzopardi.
Barcelona is indeed only a short flight from Mallorca, but it is not the only reason the company found it such an attractive place to expand.
‘it gives us confidence that this marina is not only here to stay, but is already becoming a major hub. The second MYBA show due to take place in April, as well as ‘The Superyacht Show’ planned straight after, further substantiates that we are not alone in our expectations for Barcelona. These superyachts expect high quality provisioning services, and with our experience in Mallorca, we are confident we can fill this gap in the area’
Bence Szabo, a wine specialist and sommelier with experience in the hospitality industry in London, is the person running the operation in Barcelona. Bence fell in love with Spain and the Spanish lifestyle, and has moved to country indefinitely. He now commutes between Barcelona and Mallorca assisting yachts with their wine and spirits provisions, as well as organising tastings and masterclasses for the crew.
Be it a stop-over port between France and the Balearics, a winter berth where the crew can enjoy one of the most vibrant cities in the world, or simply a destination, you cannot deny that the interest in Barcelona is increasing rapidly, and the necessary provisions will definitely be needed.
