Alella

Wine fit for an Emperor (and food fit for a King)

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.

Things to look forward to on a wine and food excursion...

    "If I could give more than 5 stars I would. The places we visited were non touristy, traditional and perfect. Each group of tapas was preceded by a traditional drink. The food was amazing and thoroughly explained."

    "Can’t begin to tell you what a wonderful evening we had... It was an adventure in food we would never have taken on our own. Not only was the food experience fabulous, we learned so much about the culture."

The Barcelona Taste: because it's delicious

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.
