We loved this experience! Our guide, Nico, was a local and knew all the areas of wine and tapas. It happened to be St.George’s Day (April 23) , a major Spanish holiday , and he brought roses for the woman as was customary- and completely unexpected! . We were a total of 5 - 2 couples and a single person and Nico, so the size of the group was perfect. On our way to the first tapas place, the skies opened up in a torrential rainfall and then it started hailing!!! Luckily we brought an umbrella, as did Nico, but the othered were not so lucky. We were drenched up arrival and made our way to a table. There Nico got a bottle of Cava and an assortment of tapas - 3 for each of us so we could taste different types of tapas. What fun! Similar to dim sum, you point to what you want, they put it in plates and at the end of your meal, they count the number and colors of the sticks as each one is a different cost. That was fun! On our way to the second place, it had stopped raining. So we were able to walk there more easily. Then we were seated at a table for 6 in the back abs weed happy it was dry and warm. There we got to try a rioja wine and a temperillo (?) wine and compare the 2. We also got appetizers of fried green tomatoes with Brie, spinach beignets with sauce, Iberia ham croquettes and seafood fidua. Angel hair short pasta with cuttlefish and aioli. Like a paella but with noodles. We let one of the wines breathe and then had a glass of each. What fun! Everyone was enjoying the meal abs the wine and the company. It’s fun when you meet fellow people who love local wine and food and are there for the experience. Nico also brought us a small glass of vermouth- quite herby and not like your moms Martina and Rossi vermouth! Our last stop was at a small wine tasting bar where we met the sommelier and we drank a bottle of 21 year old red wine that was amazingly fresh! Add a cheese platter and wow! He also had us try a

Best Night in Barcelona!
