What to Expect on Your Tour
Immerse yourself in the world of Spanish wine as an expert wine guide helps you weave your way in and out of three unique Barcelona tapas bars in the gorgeous Born district! From old-school traditional to new and modern, this walking wine tasting is the best way to discover Spanish wine! Paired with delicious tapas, you’ll taste everything from Spanish reds and whites, to sparkling wine, vermouth and sweet wine! By the end of the evening, you’ll be armed with tips for enjoying wine for the rest of your trip, and you’ll have a clearer idea on which bottle to pick up at the supermarket back home!
STOP-BY-STOPStart your night the way most locals do in Barcelona—with a classic aperitif! You’ll enjoy sweet vermouth straight from the tap, and you’ll learn why this delicious fortified wine is making a comeback! You’ll also try two quintessential Barcelona tapas—Iberian ham croquettes and spicy patatas bravas!
Next up, you’ll head to one of Barcelona’s trendiest wine bars. The owners specialize in Catalan wines and boast a fantastic wine list. This is where you’ll dive into the world of sparkling Spanish wine—cava—which is mostly produced in Catalonia! You’ll taste two very different cavas before moving on to something Spain is a little less known for—white and rosé! These refreshing wines will be paired with gourmet, open-faced toasts.
The last stop of the night is at a traditional bodega, or wine store! You’ll learn why wine stores like this one existed in the past, and see how regulars today still bring empty containers to fill up with wine once a week! Along with a traditional Catalan spread of gourmet olives, cheese and cured meats, you’ll taste a range of Spain’s fabulous reds.
