Amazing wine and food!

The wine tasting tour was absolutely the best, and my partner and I loved the experience. Alice, our host, was just perfect, and she shared many interesting details about the wines we tasted. Rioja was definitely my favorite! The wine selection was also impressive, and after this tour, it was easy to know what to order in a restaurant.

Evie

Very knowledgeable sommelier!

If you love wine, this tour is a must! I learned so much on this tour, like the importance of pairing certain foods with the right wines. I also liked that the group was not big, only 7 of us. Great way to meet new people because it's easy to relax after a glass or two haha.

Interesting Facts

CAVA SPARKLING WINE

Did you know that Catalonia produces 90% of Cava? This Catalonian speciality can compete with the famous French Champagne in every aspect. Cava was perfected in the underground cellars of the Penedes region near Barcelona, and it's crafted through traditional bottle fermentation. The final product is a sharp-tasting sparkling wine that is an ideal companion for all kinds of occasions.

WINE REGION OF PENEDES

Penedes stands as Catalonia's largest and most famous wine-producing area, and it is considered to be among the oldest in Europe. Wine production in this area dates back 600 BC or even more and is influenced by the Phoenicians, Romans, and Moors. What makes the wine of this region even more interesting is the acidic soil in which it grows. This sandy, clay-like soil not very rich in nutrients, results in highly concentrated grape juice, increasing the flavor of each grape.

FAMOUS GRAPES IN CATALONIA

There's no need to say more about why Catalonian wines are a must-try, but we still didn't say which ones. Here are some of the most famous grape varieties found in the Catalonia region that you should definitely consider tasting:

Grenache is one of the region's most famous red wines, known for its robust, full-bodied, and fruity notes.

Tempranillo is an important component in the production of some of the country's finest wines, and it is famous for its flavors of berries, tobacco, and vanilla.

White Grenache is rich and full-bodied white wine with dominant herbal and floral notes.

Xarel-lo is best known as a sparkling wine used mostly in the production of Cava, adding freshness and floral notes.

Macabeo is a grape commonly used in both still and sparkling wines and is known for its light flavor.

Good to know before you go

  • The wine tasting takes place in Barcelona's Old Town.
  • The sommelier leading the wine tasting is an expert in Spanish wines, ensuring an informative and engaging session for all participants.
