Well, it was about time we had a Barcelona wine tour.
Now, I drink Spanish wine, and trust me, I drink a lot of it. I think it’s safe to say that across Devour Spain cities, we are all pretty big Spanish wine fanatics.
It only made sense, then, that we put our minds and taste buds together to make a fantastic Barcelona wine tasting tour, with pretty spectacular tapas to top it off. It wasn’t always easy avoiding hangovers, but we managed to do it, and I’m proud to say that our our Gourmet Tapas & Wine Tasting tour is up and running and couldn’t be more exciting!
We’ve been hard at work, drinking wine
It’s a hard job, but somebody’s got to do it! We’ve spent a big part of the last few months tasting and testing some of the best wines and cavas this country has to offer. After all, our goal was to include eight to 10 different tastings of Spanish and Catalan wines! If that sounds like a lot, remember that Spain has the largest covering of wine grapes in the world, with 72 different wine-making regions… Indeed, there’s a lot to learn about Spanish wine, and a lot to taste on a Barcelona wine tour!
But we weren’t alone…
Sure, I’m a Spanish wine fanatic, but a certified expert? We knew if we wanted to do things right, we’d need a certified wine expert on our side. Cue in the sommelier! Fintan, the down-to-earth, ex-rugby-playing wine fanatic joined us to plan the tour. We wanted a memorable experience that combined Spanish wine knowledge with a fun evening out, no snobbery allowed! And let’s be honest–I think we achieved our goal.
Our favorite wine spots, all in one night
What’s the one thing better than a Spanish wine tasting? A walking Spanish wine tasting! We chose three of our favorite spots to drink wine in Barcelona, so our guests would not only discover one gorgeous place in the city, but rather three! From a modern tapas bar, to a Catalan wine bar, to a traditional, family-run wine shop, we included a taste of three different and emblematic wine establishments in Barcelona. And that’s not to mention the beautiful, cobblestone streets of the historic Born district between stops. What more could you ask for?
Whether you’re a wine expert yourself, a wine lover curious to learn more, or just want to have a fun evening out over fantastic wine and tapas in Barcelona, we hope to see you soon on our new Barcelona wine tour!
