Located so close to the famous vineyards of the Penedes and Priorat regions, no wonder so many great wines find their way to the Catalan capital of Barcelona, to be consumed with gusto by its cosmopolitan residents. The aim of this informal wine tasting class, which takes place in one of the city's traditional vinotecas, is to help participants appreciate some of these fantastic local vintages, by leading them through the four steps of appreciating wines, and talking a little bit about the different Spanish regions and terroirs. Aspiring wine buffs get to taste (generous amounts of) five different wines, whilst a native English-speaking expert talks them through the unique qualities of each. Overall the experience is absolutely perfect for anyone who wants to taste some top quality Spanish and Catalan wines, but doesn't have time for a day trip out into the Penedes region. It's also perfect for parties, corporate events and other groups and on request the activity can also be held in either a restaurant, hotel room, conference venue etc. Prices are dependent on numbers: for 2-3 people the price is 84€ per person, for 4-5 people the price is 50€ p.p., for 6-7 people it is 40€ p.p. and for groups of 8 or more the price is just 35€ per person. Simply email us at email@example.com with your group size, preferred dates and any questions and we'll get back to you within 24 hours.
Enric is a really knowledgeable and friendly Catalan sommelier who gave us a great insight into the nuances of the regional wines. I would recommend this experience for winos and newbies alike.
