A Taste of Catalonia: Vinda Wine Bar in Barcelona, Spain












Wine Bars in Barcelona

It depends on who you ask, but most agree that the best wines in Spain come from the regions of La Rioja and Ribera del Duero. These regions produce a lot of wine, and so it is also probable that even if you don’t know too much about Spanish wine, if you have drunk one, it was likely from one of those two places.

That does not mean that there are not good wines being made in others parts of Spain. I think an excellent way to get to know a culture is through its food, and in Spain, through its food and its wine (and its cava). Living in Barcelona, in Catalonia, I try to sample local Catalan wines whenever possible, and visit vineyards in the region. I particularly like the Priorat wines from Catalonia, but let me be clear, I am far from being an expert.

If you do want to talk to an expert, then it would be a good idea to head over to Vinda, a cozy wine bar in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona (near the Port). Here, you’ll find a wonderful selection of Spanish wines, and people who know all about them. The owner of Vinda also has another bar around the corner, Andu, that offers tapas as well. These are by far two of my favorite places to have a drink in the city. The service is good, the wine and food are quality, and the neighborhood is lively.

    I really love wine. I remember the first time I tried some when I was just 11 years old. My mom let me taste a bit of her red on Thankgiving. Right then and there I became a wine drinker. lol I would guess that I have tried quite a few hundred different wines over the years. It’s kind of fun trying a new one and learning about how and where it was grown. I’ve been thinking about trying a wine club lately and I’ve been thinking about this 4 Seasons club. I read a review about it here. Have you had any experience with it, or would you recommend any other wine tasting club?
