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.

Indulge in the authentic, spirited essence of Jerez without leaving Barcelona. This is more than a tasting – it's insider expertise in a hidden gem wine region and an unforgettable journey for the senses.

About the experience location: Poble Sec

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.

COVID-19: keeping you safe on our experiences

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.

    Expertly kick started our immersion into customary Spanish cuisine & drink We were on a food tour with Lorea! We shared several delicious tapas entrees preceded by glasses of vermouth. We kept rolling from there! Lorea is also a tremendous resource in terms of her knowledge of the total BCN food scene. Perfect way to start our first (and definitely not last) trip to Spain!

    Great food tour - would highly recommend to others visiting Barcelona Our tour had just two couples and the guide which was a perfect way of sliding into some great spots and feeling like we fit in, not like we were a giant distraction. Our guide was lovely and knowledgeable. She gave us good information about the history and culture of the area and even some home cooking tips!

    Amazing tour Barcelona - with tapas! We landed in Barcelona and went on a tapas tour with Anna. It was excellent (more food than we could handle!). It was a great way to kick off the trip. Have someone order for us so we tried and tasted many great tapas. Our boys (14 and 12) loved it! I highly recommend booking a food tour with them - but make sure you are SUPER hungry!

    Such a lovely experience We learned a lot about the culture and history of the area while tasting delicious local food and sipping on great drinks. I would recommend this to couples, groups of friends, or even solo travelers who want to learn more about the Spanish culture. The recommendations we received after the tour was also a great help for the rest of our trip.

    Perfect way to begin your trip This is a perfect beginning to any trip to Barcelona. Not only was the food, wine, and vermut marvelous but the guide gave us fascinating historical information during the walk. We also received excellent recommendations for eating well for the continuation of our trip. I can not recommend this food tour highly enough. We loved it.

    Beyond our expectations The tapas tour was the perfect way to start our vacation in Barcelona. Maria's knowledge of the history and culture added to the experience and the food was the best we’d had so far in our two weeks of traveling Spain. We sampled every kind of dish as well as 3 different desserts and were stuffed at the end! We highly recommend this tour.

    Tapas tour in Barcelona We met Esther and she gave us a great introduction to the tapas and of the history of Barcelona. She walked us to four different stops, where we had a large sampling of tapas and local wines, cava and vermouth. She was funny, informative, and caring to all our needs. I would highly recommend

    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 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.
