Salut Wine Studio is a tasting room and an educational space that hosts tastings, private events, workshops, and classes about wine. Salut offers several different wine tastings that introduce clients to local wines and cavas.

In addition to a regular schedule of wine tastings, Salut hosts private events and winery tours for groups, including corporate cocktail hours, team building events, and 5-week and weekend wine courses about Spanish and French wines.
Those looking for a more informal experience can attend one of the weekly afterworks or vermut Sundays. All wines are available for purchase. Events are hosted by Melissa Leighty, a WSET level 3 certified wine expert with extensive knowledge about Catalan wines.
