BARCELONA HOTEL + TAPAS AND WINE TASTING TOUR

Overview

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. The last stop of the night is at a modern bodega style tapas bar. Serving local and organic farm-to-table style food, the owner even makes his own wine. You’ll taste a couple of Catalonia’s fabulous reds, paired alongside some of the most delicious dishes in town, such as melt-in-your-mouth Iberian pork, or tender braised beef. 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!
