So once more we are separating sheep from the goats, cheers to that!
Make sure to try as many local DO’s as possible!
Barcelona is the Catalonian Capital and is one of the most visited cities in Europe. Here you can find great shopping and culture, fantastic beaches, beautiful cuisine and of course gorgeous wine from local wine regions and the rest of Spain.
Catalonia have 12 DO’s (denominacion de origen), divided in; Catalunya, Cava, Alella, Conca de Barberà, Coster del Segre, Empordà, Montsant, Penedés, Pla de Bages, Priorat, Tarragona, Terra Alta.
Also new on the playgrounds is CORPINNAT for sparkling wines in Catalonia, which is not a DO and don’t be scared when you find it on the label.
«CORPINNAT is a Collective Brand of the European Union founded with the desire of distinguishing the great sparkling wines produced in the heart of the Penedés, from 100% ecological grapes harvested by hand and integrally vinified on the premises.» Corpinnat.com

Claire founder of Blend & Bottled, dedicated to wine event, workshop & experiences shares one of her favourite wine spots in the city.
La Bodegueta Provença: – an all-time favourite where I keep coming back because of the cosy, accessible ambience with a touch of class. The wine list is intriguing with a wonderful selection of both Catalan and Spanish vinos. The vibe – a little noisy and a bit too light – only enhances the authentic atmosphere!
Address: Provença, 233, 08008 Barcelona
Barcelona’S best wine bars by the pros
Vicky Wine Barcelona, a Spanish based wine blogger sharing one of her favourite spot in Barcelona.
La Vinya del Senyor: A place where time ceases to exist and you are left in the company of the wine you are sipping on and Barcelona (it’s right in front of Santa Maria del Mar).

Nika, sommelier and founder of Wine Alphabet give us her favourite gems.
El Maravillas: This wine bar is full of character and is located on what is arguably the best-looking square in Barcelona, Plaça Concòrdia. Their wine by the glass selection is impeccable. Food pairing suggestion? Give me their anchovies on toast with a glass of cava anytime?
Address: Plaça de la Concòrdia, 15, 08014 Barcelona
La Moderna: Old wine shop on my street, turned into a lovely bodega with tastiest traditional tapas and delicious vermouth. Try and get one of the rooms in the back – they are truly special!
Address: Carrer d’Enric Granados, 110, 08008 Barcelona
La Violeta Bar: Some will know La Violeta as Rebelot, that transitioned from an original cocktail bar to a natural wine bistro with impressive Slow Food tapas (biodynamically grown tomatoes are worth every leg of the pilgrimage to the ever-busy Barceloneta). The wine by the glass is changing every couple of weeks, so I am always curious about what new gems I am going to discover on my visit.
Address: Carrer del Baluard, 58, 08003 Barcelona
