There's good, affordable wine in pretty much every supermarket in Barcelona. But if you want something special, whether from the region or from anywhere else in the world (not to mention a price range that is just as varied), this is the place to go. The staff speak multiple languages and could not be any friendlier or helpful. Be sure to try the cava; it's wonderful!

We visited this shop twice, looking for Spanish wines. The price range of the wines is certainly wider than the usual ones in the supermarket; I can't say whether the SAME wine would cost more or less in other places. The first time we visited the store was slightly more busy, and we were left pretty much to our own devices to browse. They did have two wines out for tasting, then. The second visit the store was empty, and one of the staff took the trouble to talk us through various options for Spanish wines to bring home. They didn't push the most expensive option, and took time to find out what sorts of tastes we were looking for. They wrapped the wines in bubble-wrap, and provided a cardboard box on request.
And, they spoke English, which was very important to us!

It’s surely well-known and maintains a decent selection of wines, especially the premium ones. But to be honest, I didn’t find it so much better than many other, ordinary wine-shops around the city. Though it’s an advantage that the staff speaks better English, making it easier for the tourists like us decide in an informed manner. I’ve got an average class 2009 priorat by Artigas (19€) and a very smooth Josep Foraster 2012 (11€) suggested by the staff once I laid down my criterion. They also have a restaurant as well as a shop where they sell cured meat, cheese and canned food next to one another.

Great selection with very good prices, we were passing by Barcelona to Rioja's wine festival, and a friend of mine told me about this place. We bought more then 30 bottles of different producers, and they delivered at next day. Perfect service.

An incredible selection of local & international wines and spirits. Multi levelled, clearly arranged and great unobtrusive service and advice on offer. Plus they'll bubble wrap your prized selections for that flight home. Cheers!
