About Uncorked Academy

Uncorked Academy & All Zara's Events

Uncorked Academy is my passion project in food and wine events. 

Since 2017 I have been creating the space, located just minutes’ walk from Plaça d’Espanya in Barcelona.

Here in my spacious wine academy you can attend food and wine workshops, tastings, dinner pairings, cava sabrage, organise a private event and much more!

Because I have been living and working in Barcelona for over a decade, I also organise events outside of the Uncorked Academy venue, so you might find a wine fair visit, a comedy show or another fun Barcelona-based activity listed as All Zara’s Events.

About Me

Hello, I’m Zara Patterson, originally from Northern Ireland but Barcelona has been my home since graduating Uni back in 2006.

My background is PR and Events, with years of wine training and sommelier accreditations from WSET (Level 2 Award in Wines) and Gremi de Restauració (Sommelier Diploma). I also have an Environmental Management qualification from Foment Barcelona.

Finally I can combine my love of gastronomy, décor, events and hosting in my favourite place in the world. I like to create and share original, sustainable and fun events and experiences; preferably with food and wine, based in Barcelona.

I look forward to sharing this with you, along with a glass of wine. Follow me on Instagram or Facebook for even more about what I do!
