Barcelona's Trendiest, Most Charming Wine Bars in and around the City

Barcelona's wine culture is like none other. Where else can you get a glass of delicious Rioja or Ribera Del Duero for only 2 Euros? However far beyond the ‘economical pluses’, is the vast variety of blends and number of vineyards from which the wines are from. With Catalunya having more than 9 Denominations of Origin (DO) and 1 Denomination of Origin Qualificada (DOQ), it serves for a healthy abundance of wine production across the province. The Priorat, Montsant and Penedes regions in particular, all create high quality reds, whites and cavas (Spanish Champagne).

Barcelona's wine bars reflect the countries' large variety and eclectic selection. Whether you're in the mood for a professional tasting or just want to have a few glasses with some tapas in a cool and fun setting, there are plenty of great wine bars throughout the city. Be sure to try wines not only from the Rioja but from Galicia, Ibiza and smaller regions such as the Priorat and Ribera del Duero. Both of the latter are emerging as extremely popular regions with full bodied, quality vintages. Some of their bottles are pricier, as the grape varieties are more scarce with older vines. Mas Doix is a particularly delicious vineyard in the Priorat region. If you can find their lower end bottle (still high-end) Les Crestes, give it a shot!
