About this Catalonia Wine and Food Excursion

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.

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.

About our tour location: Alella

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.

COVID-19: keeping you safe on our tapas tour

The safety of guests, guides, partners and the public is our primary concern. Because of this, we’ve developed new health and safety guidelines in accordance with WTO and World Travel and Tourism Council guidelines, and in line with Spanish and Catalan government requirements.

Please review these guidelines before booking and get in touch if you have any questions.

    All very easy & I was grateful they were so accommodating Maribel was our host and she provided great insight into their traditions and neighborhoods. None of the food and drink selections were ones I would have chosen on my own, which is what makes the food tour so special. I had a wonderful time and would go again. This process was all very easy and I was grateful they were so accommodating.

    Highlight of our Barcelona visit We ate at three wonderful small restaurants and had a delicious variety of tapas. They were all unique places that we never would have found on our own. So glad we found this tour online- it was easy to book, and easy to find our guide in the Gothic quarter. So much fun- I highly recommend it!

    Best Food Tour Lorea was fantastic, professional and fun! The sites chosen were all walkable and provided a glimpse into the Gothic and Jewish quarters. More importantly, the food and wine were wonderful. We are still talking about it to our friends and neighbors. Well worth the money!!

    A must do for tapas experience My experience with Maribel was outstanding. She provided an excellent tasting at several fine local establishments giving our small group of strangers an evening with education about tapas and tasting the best, from wine to dessert. She was so inviting and personable. Walking pace was easy, food choices were delicious. Price point excellent. Highly recommend.

    Great first night in Barcelona. I had this tour lined up to orient myself and give me an idea of tapas in Barcelona. The tour did not disappoint! I was introduced to tapas I have never tried before and enjoyed every single dish. The locations were top quality and I'll definitely return. Lorea took time to explain everything, as well as sharing her knowledge of the city.

    Ridiculous Food! We did three food tours on Portugal/Spain trip and this was the best one by far! The food was ridiculously good and appreciated the group was small. Gracia was very knowledgeable not only of Spanish food and culture, but history as well! I highly recommend booking this when you arrive to Barcelona.

    Amazing experience! This was the perfect tour for my wife and I on our first visit to Barcelona. Our guide (Lorea) was charming, knowledgeable and passionate about her city and Tapas. We were treated like family at every stop and the pairings and variety of wine and Tapas were fantastic! We'll be back!

    We had a wonderful time PLENTY of wonderful cuisine...we really enjoyed our evening with our small group of 6. Highly recommend doing this at the beginning of your trip! Oh, and they accommodated a tree nut allergy without any challenges - even substituted an alternate dish for the one item that included nuts.

    Top tapas tour - honeymooners give it 5 stars! My husband and I took this tour on our honeymoon and it was amazing! It was so personalised and interesting. Our guide provided the history of the area and the food we ate, and was wonderful to converse with the entire night. The food was delicious, we loved walking around and being shown different historical monuments. We would 100% do this again!

    Unforgettable Personalized Team Tasting of Barcelona We had an INCREDIBLE personalized food tour. We were a large group who gathered together in Barcelona for a work meeting and wanted to do a food tour as a team event. The team truly knows the city, its restaurants and vendors which led to such an unforgettable experience. This is a tour company you can trust to get an authentic Barcelona experience.
