Vermouth, Cava and Catalonian Appetizers

Kick off your Barcelona food tour at your first stop, dedicated to opening up your palate to new flavors. Enter a favorite of Barcelona nightlife, Bodega Maestrazgo, where you’ll immediately see shelves stocked floor-to-ceiling with Spanish vermouth, cava (the Spanish version of champagne) and other wines. For your first beverage of the evening, try out some authentic Spanish vermouth, a fortified wine served commonly as an aperitif in Spain. You’ll be surprised when sipping this dark red wine that it actually starts out as a white wine, though after its infused with different spices, it turns its classic red.
 
With a side of bread, manchego cheese and olives, try out another classic Spanish wine: cava! Marked by its Denominación de Origen status from Catalonia, this sparkling wine’s name tells a tale of its preservation methods. Cava translates to “caves,” where this wine was stored to keep cool in the early days. Finish off your first stop with the best jamón in the worldJamón Iberico de Bellota. Ask your guide why it is so special!

 

Best Tapas in Barcelona

What are tapas? Tapas are small portions of classic Spanish dishes, meant to be shared among a group of people. Since people in Spain typically eat dinner on the later side, eating tapas is a great way to socialize with friends and family after work, before dinner time rolls around. On the second stop of your evening of wining and dining, visit a typical Barcelona local tapas bar. Start off your tapas experience with a glass of delicious Spanish wine, then, prepare yourself for some incredible local flavors. 
 
Enjoy servings of fried anchovies, Spanish sausage and a colorful tomato salad. Your guide will walk you through how all of these flavors complement one another, and how the Catalan people season their favorite dishes for the perfect balance of flavor. 

 

Traditional Spanish Dinner 

Finally, it’s time to sit back and enjoy a comfortable local dinner. For the last stop of this tour, your guide will lead you to a typical bodega, a Barcelona restaurant with a fascinating history. Despite its name, this restaurant no longer resembles an urban grocery store that might come to mind. Beginning as a food market and now a hub for painters, poets and other artists, this restaurant is bursting at the seams with local splendor.
 
Enjoy one of Spain’s signature tapas dishes, patatas bravas (oven roasted potatoes with a special sauce), as well as croquetas (a fried potato delight). As if these potato dishes weren’t enough to make you swoon, you’ll then move on to your main course, a scrumptious pork cheek stew. After this fiesta of flavors, conclude your Spanish dinner with a sweet traditional dessert, crema catalana. If you’re a fan of crèm brûlée, enjoy this fresh local take on this popular French dessert.
 

Adéu!

By this point, you have enjoyed some delicious Spanish aperitifs, indulged in some of Barcelona's most tasty tapas and sat down for a local dinner comprised of authentic classics. After learning about foodie culture from your expert guide, it's time to say buenos noches (or bona nit in Catalanto your guide. Not to worry though, the night is still young in Barcelona and you have plenty of time to explore the rest of Barcelona's nightlife after your tour concludes.
