Why participate in a wine or beer tasting

In the Catalonia wine region you will find 12 cultivation areas (Denominació d’Origen, D.O.), all of which have a different climate and different soils. This is how you experience wines with very own characters. With a wine tasting, you can experience the tastes of the wines and assign them to the regions.

The Cava - of which around 90% are produced in Catalonia - is also something very special. You also taste the differences of many varieties of Cava. You will also learn a lot of interesting facts about the exciting topic of wine cultivation.

Beer is also brewed in Barcelona. In addition to the large brewer Damm that almost exports all over the world, there are many small and local breweries whose beers can be enjoyed here in Barcelona. Above all, it is also worth a visit to the Moritz brewery, which was built in an old factory with modern technology.
