Bodega Maestrazgo Tastings
One of our favorite wine shops in Barcelona hosts all sorts of different wine tastings in their beautiful bodega and private tasting room. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for different wine tastings held throughout the year. They also offer a tasting menu for people to try while there. We visit this wonderful hidden gem (and taste wine and vermouth straight from the barrels!) on some of our delicious tours, so join us to visit in good company!
Undoubtedly one of the most famous wine bars in the world is Monvinic. The name itself means “world of wine!” This fancy place hosts a wealth of fantastic wine tastings at their bar and restaurant just a stone’s throw from Plaça Catalunya, including blind tastings. It’s pricey, but they do have wines from all over the world. Learning through your senses on a wine tasting in Barcelona is an evening well spent.
Vila Viniteca is a family-run wine and gourmet shop in the beautiful Born neighborhood. It is what some might call a gastronomical dynasty in the area. From the gorgeous bodega to the cheese and charcuterie emporium, this place knows good food and wine! Don’t miss out on the different Barcelona wine tastings, festivals, and events held at and around their tasting rooms and shops throughout the year. Also worth stopping into their deli for some wine and cheese!
A lovely little wine shop in the Eixample, Sentits BCN not only stocks great bottles of wine, but they also hold ongoing tastings and activities inside their shop! It’s a great place to buy wine if staying the Eixample neighborhood too.
