Tasting and purchasing the wines of Catalonia in Barcelona

Not looking for where the tourists normally go. I would like an opportunity to purchase wines from small Bodegas, especially those not exported to any great extent. I am particularly interested in the wine producing areas of the Alt Emporda and other lesser known districts.

2 places I like:

- Vilaviniteca. Carrer Agullers 7 (El Born)

www.vilaviniteca.es

- Vinacoteca. Carrer València, 595 (Clot)

www.vinacoteca.cat

In both you'll find many different wines from all Catalan regions and expert staff (but I've no idea if they speak English)

You can find as well many wines in any good supermarkets. Many tourists go to El Corte Ingles in plaça de Catalunya but I doubt many of them bother about the supermarket in the basement ;-) ECI has a good selection of local wines, classified by D.O. regions.

Salut!

Thanks Belsaita,

Vilaviniteca I had already heard about, but Vinacoteca is new to me and easily reachable too.

This is a useful thread which I'd like to add to the Top Question on Souvenir Ideas for Barcelona. Apart from the names that Belsaita has mentioned, there's the more 'touristy' Bar Zim (owned by Katherine McLaughlin and her business partner, Francesc). It's next to her wonderful artisanal cheese shop, Formatgeria La Seu.
