The Barcelona Taste was founded in December 2009 to introduce curious locals and adventurous tourists alike to the culinary treats nestled within the labyrinth that is Barcelona. After years of exploring, sampling, and delighting in the local secrets, we decided we were ready to share our discoveries with other discerning palates wanting to experience a more authentic Barcelona. We are Barcelona’s first complete gastronomical tour built around the idea that there is no reason to just walk and talk about food when it’s possible to walk, talk, and eat it!
So, welcome! We look forward to tasting our way around Barcelona and Catalonia with you.
Alella isn’t on your typical tourist list… but it hasn’t always been such a hidden gem. With its distinctive fast-draining topsoil and unique microclimate in the hills overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, Alella has produced exceptional wines since Roman times, served to Roman Emperors no less! This fame continued into the Middle Ages, where Alella wines were served at the court of the Kings of Aragon.
Today, Alella is the smallest wine producing region in Cataluyna to gain coveted European Denomination of Origen (D.O.) status. But for some reason it isn’t terribly well known abroad. Our mission is to make you fall in love (or fall in love again) with the local variety – the pansa blanca. Over the course of the tour you’ll try white wines, sparking wines, and an aperitif all made from this single, delicately flavoured grape. We will also try the region’s best local reds and rosé.
