Looking for the perfect a compliment to that special meal? Maybe a bottle or two for evening drinks back at your private accommodation. The reality is with some of the best wines in the world, when you’re in Barcelona you don’t really need an excuse to buy a bottle at these wine stores.
You will be hard pushed to find something that doesn’t tick all the right boxes at Vila Viniteca. With over 4,500 different wines available there’s surely something for all occasions. It’s located in the thriving district of the Gothic Quarter too, so the chances are at some point during your visit you will be in the area.
They may not have quite the same selection, but there’s still in excess of 100 bottles to choose from at Colmado Quilez. This corner shop has been serving the public of Barcelona since the early 1900’s.
Art de Vins
If you’re visiting the Sant Antoni’s market, then look for Art de Vins nearby. Not only do they stock a wide selection, but they also hold regular tasting sessions and private wine classes.
This small chain has a store in Switzerland, France and of course Barcelona. Prices are reasonable and if you’re after something a little more special, then Lavinia have a good selection of sparkling wines and champagnes too.
Vinus & Brindis
Within the neighbourhood of Gracia, you will find the knowledge team at Vinus & Brindis. The expert staff will help you choose the best bottle, to suit whatever meal you’re planning on cooking.
With some vintage bottles displayed upon the shelves at Bodega Maestrazgo, expect to spend a little more for that special something. Although if you’re looking to buy a regular bottle, then that can be just as special as you’re welcome to take a seat and taste before you buy.
Within the historic Gothic Quarter, you will find this old-fashioned greengrocer. Specialising in Catalan and Spanish wines, you will certainly see what Spain has to offer. If that’s not enough, then there’s plenty more local produce available too.
Although ultimately a restaurant, rather than a just store, at Viblioteca you will still find a bottle or two to bring home with you.
The small wine bar come delicatessen offers a selection of tasters, which you can sample while enjoying some free nibbles.
This cellar will have you sampling the finest wines Spain has to offer, stay for the evening or take the day off. Whatever your reason for visiting, you will be sure to enjoy a glass or two.
