I've always been hesitant to book a food/wine tour because it always seemed too expensive to me. However, this tour is SO WORTH IT! Myself and two friends ended up being the only people that booked this tour so it was essentially a private tour filled with wine, tapas, and great conversation! The time went by so quickly and we learned so much about wine local to the region, as well as some historical facts as we walked throughout the night from one venue to the next. I highly recommend it!
It was the best thing we did on the trip. I’ve done many food tours before and usually they bring you to the tourists traps for a small bite of food and a few sips of wine. This was the complete opposite experience - every place was authentic and unique and delicious and we left with our bellies full! (And pretty tipsy). We ended up hanging out with the people we met on the tour for the rest of the holiday. I actually know what kind of wine/vermouth/cava to order now thanks to Enrique. Can’t say enough good things about this experience!!
We loved the food, drinks and restaurants on the tour so much, that we just went back to every restaurant to eat more of what we had and try other items! So yummy, informative, and enjoyable! Worth every penny.
What to Expect on Your Tour
Join us for an evening of great food and interesting wines in Barcelona's historic Born neighborhood. Tonight, we're leaving the Rioja and Ribera behind and diving into the world of unique Catalan wines instead. We'll sit down at modern bars and restaurants for an elevated dining experience where the contemporary food has clear ties to tradition.
Start your night the way most locals do in Barcelona—with a classic aperitif in Barcelona's original style of tapas bar. Here 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 a modern wine bar that highlights small, local Catalan wine producers. That means that the wines we try here are ones you'll never find in a normal store! First we'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 wines will be paired with gourmet, open-faced toasts, a traditional Catalan dish.
We'll finish with a sit-down tapas dinner at a restaurant that's fully booked most nights of the week. If you want to understand tapas culture in Barcelona, this is where you need to go. The contemporary farm-to-table food has a clear connection to tradition, as well as to Barcelona's modern cuisine. Plus, the owner even makes his own wine! You’ll taste a couple of Catalonia's standout reds, paired alongside dishes like melt-in-your-mouth Iberian pork or tender braised beef.
By the end of the night, you will have tried some of Barcelona's stellar bites, paired with the wines you won't find anywhere else, and you'll understand how it all fits into the bigger picture of tapas in Barcelona.
