Wine in Catalonia
Spain has over 60 different wine regions, eleven of which can be found in Catalonia. As Catalonia boats both coast and mountains, extremely hot and extremely cold temperatures, clear, still days and wild thunderstorms, it produces an astonishing variety of wines.
Learn which grapes make the best cava (Catalonia’s answer to champagne), which climate is the best for producing tempranillo grapes and the extraordinary lengths that winemakers have gone to in order to ensure the survival of the Spanish wine industry over the years.
Want to see where wine is made? Try our Winery Day Trip or Sailing with Winery Tour, both of which travel to the Alta Alella wine region to visit a local wine producer.
Bodegas in Barcelona
The word “bodega” has multiple meanings in Spanish, one of which is “wine bar” or “wine shop”. The bodega tradition in Barcelona is an important part of life for the locals; your guide will explain this tradition and much more during the tour.
You will visit three distinct spots in order to experience a cross-section of what the Barcelona wine scene has to offer: a modern bodega, a traditional tapas bar and finally a trendy wine bar.
Don’t forget your guide will have a dozen more examples of where to enjoy Barcelona and Spanish wine – when the tour is over, you’ll be dying for more insider tips! It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for a spot to order six bottles with international delivery options to send home to your friends and family or just a quiet spot to enjoy some wine alone, your guide will be able to help.
All these delicious drinks and tapas will be in Barcelona’s iconic El Born neighbourhood. El Born is known for its maze-like streets with surprises hidden around every corner. It’s also known for being home to some of Barcelona’s most intriguing true stories and local legends. Exploring this “barrio” is a must-do for any visitor to the Catalan capital.
El Born is also home to some of the best bars and restaurants that Barcelona has to offer, and although it is certainly a touristic centre, it hasn’t lost its heart. You will still find family-run businesses thriving in amongst the flashier chain restaurants, you just have to look – or book this tour to be shown them by your guide!
