These days, it isn’t only the taste but the passion of the owners and their chefs have become important elements in deciding where to go and enjoy a good glass of wine. In fact in order for any restaurant to succeed today they need to be able to focus on to things. Certainly in Spain everyone knows that both food and wine pay a very important role not only for those who live here, but also those visiting. It is for this reason over the last few years that Barcelona has become known for having several of the best bars in the world.
In this simple guide we are going to provide you with some recommendations that will help to ensure you enjoy some of the best wine bars in the city for yourself when visiting.
The first thing that needs to be recognized is that since prizes have begun to be awarded for the “World’s 50 Best Restaurants”, Barcelona has been working hard to ensure that they have developed their own range of awards and are now proving to be among the most prestigious in the world.
One of the most recent restaurants to be awarded such is El Celler de Can Roca, located in Girona on Can Sunyer. Although it has now been relegated to second place overall it is still considered to be one of the most charming of all establishments not just in Europe around the world. What has helped to give it such a rating is that it has one of the best pastry chefs Jordi Roca.
However we suggest that you don’t just focus on the “World’s 50 Best Restaurant List” to find a beautiful place to enjoy beautiful food and wine, as the American tradition of wine bar and brunch bars means that a whole new range of establishments have appeared that aren’t as well known within the confines of this city.
Not only do these offer you amazing wines from around the world, they also offer delicious food made using local produce. As a result out have gone the hearty lunches that most Spanish have enjoyed instead classic food is now being substituted for more the kind that offers you a much more chic and enriching experience.
When staying in Barcelona we highly recommend you spend time enjoying what is on offer at Els Sortidors. Valencia Cata 1.81 or Viladomat Nostalgic Bar.
