Wine Tasting Class
City-based wine tasting with a local sommelier
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.
The session starts with a little game, as your guide for the activity (a local Catalan sommelier) challenges you to guess the flavours in his aromas kit, an exercise that helps prep the brain for what is to come.
Next aspiring wine buffs get to taste (generous amounts of) five different wines, whilst the sommelier talks you through the unique qualities of each. For each session he hand selects some of his favourite vintages from Catalonia’s 12 denominacion de origen wine regions, so you’ll be enjoying some of the very best produce in this part of Spain.
Furthermore each wine is paired with an artisan cheese, and dairy lovers will enjoy the variety of textures and intense flavours that make it onto the table, including from the Pyrenees mountains.
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 a restaurant, hotel room, conference venue or other place of your choice.
