Field marketing - Wine Consultant
When two professionals like Clara and Jaume join efforts to communicate passionately locally grown produce, a respect for tradition and innovate in food and wine activities, success and good times are guaranteed!»
Hotel Hostal Sport Manager
We still vividly remember the DO Pla de Bages and DO Alella wine tastings that Clara Antúnez carried out at the meeting rooms Montsant and les Voltes at Hotel Hostal Sport within the season 12 months, 12 DO. Care, generosity, in-depth subject knowledge... A much demanded tasting run by a sommelier that leaves a mark and that explains wines naturally. A passionate professional that gives value to any project she is involved.»
Champagne Guide Director
As Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known by his pen-name Mark Twain, who was a popular writer, public speaker and North American humorist (1835-1910) said: "Man is the only animal that eats when he is not hungry, drinks when he's not thirsty, and talks when he's got nothing to say". Over a century after his death, and with no intention of showing up such distinguished and illustrated character, I dare to say that should Mark twain meet Clara Antúnez and Jaume Montanyà he would say that man is the only animal that eats when he is not hungry, drinks when he's not thirsty, and talks when he's got a lot to say, through the pleasure of sharing a good meal and the spirit of coexistence that good gastronomy has given to human condition.»
Talking to Clara Antúnez about health and nutrition is always a pleasure, a display of common sense and intelligence in a historical moment when, despite the million channels of information we have, we are more misinformed than ever. In a world where so many false ideas are spread about food, impossible diets, miraculous superfoods and lies of all kind, journalists must look for accuracy, seriousness and scientific knowledge. I have been lucky enough to find all this in Clara.»
Journalist specialised in wine tourism and sommelier
Clara Antúnez makes wine speak. She is a sommelier that presents it with a very personal style, looking for a pairing with the seasons of the year if necessary. And she does that convinced, in a calm accurate and sensitive way. She defends the emotions that the winemaker puts into the wine, its specificity so it reaches the person who raises the glass without any shade. She seduces with an educational and pedagogical speech. She knows what she is talking about and what she suggests drinking. In this professional trip she has added Jaume's passion and gastronomic experience to fill with culture, landscape and knowledge the happy hours we all wish to live.»

Director of Vinari Prizes
Clara Antúnez is an excellent professional and a better person. Entrepreneur, passionate, eager and always ready to continue learning, Clara throws herself into sharing this knowledge with students -while she teaches at Joviat school-, or with people interested in wine, nutrition or in the combination of these and other subjects she knows so well. She is a caring person, not only abot details but also about the people she works with and friends, and she is an honest responsible professional.»
Wine Barcelona Association - DO Santa Caterina
We admire her ability to communicate in a pleasant and dynamic way the virtues of local products and wines.»
Metàl·liques Grabalosa Manager
For Metàl·liques Grabalosa working with Clara was a real pleasure. It only took a simple mail to introduce ourselves, a phone call and everything went really quick. She visited the venue before the reception, she suggested ideas for the meal and she organized the wine tasting. She even helped us choose the furniture and material required, such as the glasses, containers and napkins.
The conference was addressed to active architects from the South of France, which is one of the main branches of our business and the talk was given in perfect French. Personally, I am left with the feeling that even though the conference was intense, the tasting gave a dramatic pleasant effect of calmness and serenity where all of us were able to sit, listen and connect while we enjoyed Clara's explanations. I am convinced that Clara's personality and, therefore, her company, give that effect which is an unbeatable result not everyone is able to give.
