The Catalan History Museum in Barceloneta is opening its doors to an enogastronomic (wine and cheese) festival which gives visitors the chance to sample some of Catalunya’s finest wines and cheeses. This gourmand’s delight takes place on Saturday the 28th of May.
Catalunya is famed for its wine production. While Cava is probably the best known Catalan wine outside of Spain, fine wines such as Penedes, Priorat and Montsant are widely enjoyed within Spain. Catalan food is internationally renowned and the region produces many fine cheeses, particularly in its northern reaches close to the Pyrenees.
To celebrate the tenth anniversary of Catalan Cultural Club ‘TR3SC’, ten local wines are being paired with ten Catalan cheeses and made available on the stunning terrace of the Museu d’Història de Catalunya and Restaurante 1881, all to be enjoyed with some delightful views of with top views of the old port of Barcelona.
You pay €12 for 10 tickets (these will buy you five cheeses and five wines) or €20 for 20 tickets (ten cheeses and ten wines) and are provided with your tickets, a glass, and a booklet that explains the products. Then all you need to do is enjoy yourself. Bon profit!
