Discover Tarragona: Ancient Charms, Exclusive Wines – Catalunya's Hidden Gem


Last updated: November 27, 2023


The ancient – and beguiling – city of Tarragona is full of surprises. Indeed, this fine old Roman museum was once the capital of Catalunya; that privilege has been transferred to the metropolis known as Barcelona, situated to the north. Yet Tarragona remains an essential cog in the regional economy, and the surrounding landscape is covered in wealth-creating vines. It is one of Catalunya’s oldest DOs (appellations), and the vast majority of wines, until recently, were late-harvest dessert styles. But, since these have fallen out of fashion, winegrowers are now producing exceptional dry whites, reds, and some refreshing bubbly. Unfortunately, only a relatively small volume of Tarragona (still) wine is sent abroad—all the more reason to visit Catalunya and enjoy these delicious wines at the source.
