The Barcelona Hotel Association are collaborating with The Catalan Institute of Vineyards and Wine (ICANVI) in 52 wine tasting sessions across 28 of the city’s most prestigious luxury hotels.
From the 12th of September to the 18th of September and for the fifth year in a row, tasting sessions will offer the chance to learn about the basic principles of wine tasting, as well as to learn more about 12 Catalan DO wines, and of course, to taste some (6) of them. Many of these carefully selected wines have won international awards.
Although most sessions are in Catalan, two sessions in English will take place at the Neri and Ohla hotel.
Participating hotels include: 1898, ABaC Restaurant & Hotel, Alexandra, Arts Barcelona, Raval Barceló, Claris, DO: Plaza Real, Spain, Cram, Gran Hotel La Florida, Catalonia Gran Hotel Torre, Hilton Barcelona, Hotel Neri, Le Méridien Barcelona, Majestic Hotel & Spa Barcelona, Mandarin Oriental Barcelona, Barcelona Melia, Mercer Hotel Barcelona, Barcelona Whisper, Ohla Hotel and Omm.
The event coincides with the Mostra de Vins i Caves de Catalunya, the Catalan wine and cava show. Now in it’s 39th edition, the event is held on Passeig de Lluís Companys during the festival of La Mercè from September 22nd-25th.
