About Vicky

¡Hola! Welcome to Vicky Wine Barcelona, a blog for young wine lovers from around the world who wish to discover more Spanish wine brands and wineries. I won’t give you long and detailed lectures on oenology, as I have a loooooot to learn myself yet, but I will provide you with an objective and rather a fresh insight into the wine region I’m from -Penedès. Even though now it might sound unfamiliar to you, if you google “what to do in Barcelona region” when on holidays, Penedès will definitely pop up!

I will guide you through this small but pretty region (all my friends from abroad love it) and its wineries, helping you discover more Spanish wines that you can enjoy wherever you are and giving you ideas of where to go when you come (back) to Barcelona!

I have been working in wine sector for a couple of years already and besides this blog, I’m also working on some wine projects. I have the WSET Level 2 Award in Wines&Spirits, which is not that much but I hope to keep learning. I will collaborate from time to time with some professionals who have been in the sector for a very long time.

And to finish, my name is Vicky (or Viktoriya Bryksa 😁), as everyone may have guessed by now. I was born in Ukraine and bred near Barcelona, as a consequence, I speak (more or less, haha) several languages. I have completed a degree in Translation and Interpreting (yes, I also translate from time to time), and now I’m doing a master’s in Corporate Communications.
