Delve into the world of Jerez's exceptional wines, a carefully curated selection that offers a rare glimpse into the region's viticultural treasures. With the robust nature of these wines, we have thoughtfully chosen four remarkable varieties to savor and discuss, allowing for a full appreciation of their complex profiles.
Our tastings are not just about the wine – they're about the stories, the people, and the land. Organized by a Jerez local, and guided by our professional English-speaking sommeliers, our event gives you insider access to the most intimate bodegas and their traditions without leaving central Barcelona.
What sets our tasting apart is the harmony of regional bites paired with each glass, creating a symphony of flavors that can't be found in any typical Barcelona bodega. Our exclusive venue, tucked away in the annex of a cherished tavern known for the city's most authentic Southern Spanish tapas, adds an extra layer of charm to your 90-minute escapade.
After the formal tasting concludes, you're welcome to linger, indulge, and explore more culinary delights next door, where the buzz of Barcelona's local food scene comes alive.

With a minimum of four reservations required to conduct the event, we encourage you to reserve your spot now for an unforgettable afternoon of wine, tapas, and cultural discovery!
Poble-Sec (Catalan for 'Dry village') is Barcelona’s old but vibrant performing arts district, a centrally located neighbourhood boasting elegant 19th-century architecture and the best hidden gem restaurants in town.
The neighbourhood has a rich history, having once been outside of the city’s walls and inhabited mainly by residents that couldn’t afford the higher prices for accommodation inside the walls.Nowadays it is known more for its ample offering of theatres and nightclubs, making it Barcelona’s top entertainment district.
Despite being so close to key landmarks of Barcelona, it doesn’t tend to be nearly as crowded or full of tourists as some other neighbourhoods. Plaça Espanya borders it to the west, the Ramblas or Boquería to the north and the port, museums and World Trade Center to the east. But here one can enjoy an evening here and see a “real” part of the city – an area much less inundated by tourists.
We fell in love with Poble Sec because of the incredible culinary offering it has had for the past few decades. The neighbourhood is a hotbed of young chefs running some of the most exciting restaurants in the city. This makes it the perfect setting for our experiences – the food and wines are exceptional, served up in a safe, central, authentic neighborhood.
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.
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 save you time so you can experience the best food Barcelona has to offer while side-stepping the crowds.
We take you to small, local businesses offering delicious, top quality food restaurants 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 don’t take a “pile ‘em high” approach with our guests. Our focus is on providing the best possible quality in everything we do. This includes limiting our tours to very small numbers, to give personal attention and feed everyone well.
