Barcelona and wine

Barcelona and wine have shared a love story since Roman times. The idyll continued in medieval monasteries, and later, in the Cathedrals of Wine built as a result of the nascent farmers' cooperative movement of the art nouveau period. Today wine is more alive than ever, and the wine-producing tradition is firmly embedded in the region's social and cultural life. Wine and cava are inextricably linked to the wealth of Catalan gastronomy and they never stop flowing at every celebration, to such an extent that there are a number of dedicated wine festivals held throughout the year. Discover the thrilling world of wine and let yourself be captivated by its every nuance.
