Wine Tasting at Hotel Praktik Vinoteca
What It Is:
The Praktik Vinoteca is a wine lover’s dream come true — it’s a charming hotel wholeheartedly devoted to all things vino! There are over 900 bottles featured throughout the hotel, and guests who stay there are greeted with a complimentary glass of wine to begin their stay. But even if you’re not spending the night, anyone is welcome to stop by for a wine tasting with their expert sommelier. We stopped by one evening for a lovely tasting of Spanish wines, with a focus on Catalonian wines in particular, and completely enjoyed the whole experience. The wines were fantastic, our sommelier was incredibly knowledgeable, and the setting was beautiful. We would completely recommend it!

Why We Love It:
If you are new to Spain — or perhaps new, especially, to Spanish wines — this tasting is a perfect way to get a sense of what you like. And will also help you know what to look for as you explore menus around Barcelona. The beautiful patio is also a great place to sit and enjoy a glass with friends. And if you happen to find a bottle you really love, the hotel will help arrange to have it shipped to your home.

- Plaça Catalunya, perhaps the main transportation hub in the city, is a 10-minute walk away.
