At The Barcelona Taste we believe that quality matters above all else… which is why we have carefully curated an outstanding new wine tasting and dining experience in Alella, a beautiful wine-growing region just 25 minutes outside Barcelona.
Join The Barcelona Taste for a premium day excursion into the heart of Catalonia, eating the best food and tasting a variety of the best wines the region has to offer.
Our mission is to make you fall in love with our local wine varieties. Over the course of the tour you’ll try excellent white wines, red wines, sparking wines – including Cava of course – and aperitifs.
It isn't only the wine we want to show off, the food is incredible too... As always with The Barcelona Taste, we've searched high and low for the highest quality food to share with you. So you can look forward to a wonderful home-style Catalan lunch eaten in beautiful surroundings.
You will be accompanied by a friendly, knowledgeable guide at all times, who will tell you stories about Catalan/Spanish history and gastronomy and will make sure this is one of the highlights of your vacation in Barcelona. A driver will also be at our disposal all day long, in a private, comfortable and clean vehicle.

Alella isn’t on your typical tourist list… but it hasn’t always been such a hidden gem. With its distinctive fast-draining topsoil and unique microclimate in the hills overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, Alella has produced exceptional wines since Roman times, served to Roman Emperors no less! This fame continued into the Middle Ages, where Alella wines were served at the court of the Kings of Aragon.
Today, Alella is the smallest wine producing region in Cataluyna to gain coveted European Denomination of Origen (D.O.) status. But for some reason it isn’t terribly well known abroad. Our mission is to make you fall in love (or fall in love again) with the local variety – the pansa blanca. Over the course of the tour you’ll try white wines, sparking wines, and an aperitif all made from this single, delicately flavoured grape. We will also try the region’s best local reds and rosé.
Barcelona is a major tourist destination – the number of guidebooks and websites devoted to the city is overwhelming! Which is why we started The Barcelona Taste ... to let you experience all the great food Barcelona has to offer while side-stepping the crowds.
We take you to restaurants and shops on our scrumptious tours because they’re great. We visit, we taste and then we visit again and taste again. Ad infinitum! That’s our research.
We strike no deals and ask for no discounts or commissions. This is how it must be done, with 100% respect for small, local business and delicious, quality food.
