Catalunya Wine Regions Guide

Uncover the Essence of Catalan Wines: Your Ultimate Catalunya Wine Region Guide


Last updated: March 21, 2024


Until recently, Spain’s eastern seaboard was primarily associated with Cava; this iconic bubbly has suffered a few major blows in recent years, as several key wineries left the DO (appellation) for new pastures. Yet plenty of bodegas have remained loyal to the brand, producing one of Europe’s best-value sparkling wines. Nevertheless, the creation of a rival designation (Corpinnat) isn’t the only story of value to have emerged from Catalunya in recent times. Quite the opposite: a formerly maligned province – at least in viticultural terms – has become a powerhouse of exceptional still wines, ranging from the voluptuous essence that is Priorat to the saline whites of Conca de Barbara and Costers del Segre.

As a bonus, most of Catalunya’s premier wine regions are easily accessible from Barcelona. A short distance from the rugged Costa Brava, you can sunbathe, swim, and taste wine at a moment’s notice in this part of the world. Meanwhile, the three-star Michelin restaurant El Celler de Can Roca is less than 50 minutes by train from this seductive metropolis. And what is a great meal without fine wine? Producing a broad palate of red, white, and rosé wines, growers in Catalunya can turn their hand to anything: luxury labels, affordable reds, delicious pink, and superlative fizz. It’s all yours for the taking.
