Updated: 19 April 2017
Enjoying a glass of wine with cheese is becoming an ever more trendy pastime in Barcelona. Spain boasts excellent wines, from Galicia’s Albariño to Catalonia’s Cava, and a great variety of cheeses, from Cabrales to Manchego. The 21st-century bodegas in Barcelona focus on providing customers with quality wine and gastronomic experiences. Here are some of the top wine and cheese places to experience in Barcelona.

Viblioteca is the best place to have a great glass of wine in Gracia. Here, two sommeliers have gathered more than 150 wine bottles in their cellar. Every fortnight or so they rotate the selection of wines available. The cheese they pair them with is usually artisanal and made of raw milk.

Carrer de Vallfogona, 12, Barcelona, Spain, +34 932 84 42 02.

Formatgeria La Seu

A small cheese shop with an even smaller tasting room in the back, Formatgeria La Seu is located in Barcelona’s Barrio Gotico, on the grounds of a former butter-making factory. The cheese shop claims to have a selection of the best Spanish farm products, offering only a handful of hand-crafted cheeses made in limited quantities by independent producers around the country. There are two options for a cheese-and-wine experience: either a quick stand-up tasting of three types of cheese paired with wine, or a proper tasting with more varieties. You can be sure to sample delicacies from Cantabria and Galicia, or even the Torta de la Serena cheese from the Extremadura region. Make a reservation as the place is small and only holds up to eight people in the back tasting room.

Vila Viniteca

Vila Viniteca is one of the most renowned wine and delicacy shops in Spain, and one of the oldest in Barcelona. It’s part shop, part deli with a tasting area where you can sample from a selection of about 350 handmade cheeses, paired with a glass of wine. Some of the cheeses come from independent cheese makers, while others are curated on location in their own cold rooms. The wine shop boasts an impressive 4,000 bottles, from the Catalan DO Penedès to Cabernet Sauvignon from California.
