Barcelona City Tours offers a variety of exciting tours with tastings in and around Barcelona. Catalonia has in total 10 wine regions to choose from, but most of our tours go to either Penedes or the Priorat district - two beautiful zones with excellent wines.
Barcelona is the city in Spain with most Michelin stars, which means that you also have the possibility of trying a wide range of Spanish wines together with local gourmet food. Also, the city has what has been called "the best wine bar in the world" by international media.
Here are some of the wine tastings we offer:
CTB Travels organize tastings at several wineries in the Penedes wine district. We can arrange wine tours to big wineries like Torres (producing more than 50 million bottles a year), or to high quality wineries with a small production in the wine region. The possibilities for wine tastings are practically endless: it is possible to taste 1, 2, 3, or more local wines in the company of a local sommelier, to get a private tour in the vineyards or drive by jeep through the vineyards.
Priorat is further away from Barcelona than Penedès, but the wine region is well worth the journey! Priorat procuderer a number of Spain's most popular and top end wines. New methods and new grape varieties have changed the production considerately over the past decades.
Priorat includes a wide range of quality wineries, situated amidst the dramatic and mountainous landscape. Here is the opportunity to eat gourmet dinners with views, walk among the vines, which many places are planted on slopes and sample some of the area middle and high-quality wines.
