The Best Wine Bars in Barcelona
There are few things in life that help you to escape the hustle and bustle or the everyday. We think that a glass of wine is one of those things. Nothing beats catching up with some friends, chatting about anything and everything over a glass of wine and some delicious food. If you agree, then you can’t miss this wine bar list that we are about to serve you. Do you know some other gem in Barcelona that we missed? Let us know in the comments below!
#1 Zona d’Ombra
If you find yourself strolling around the GOTHIC QUARTER, looking for a nice spot to drink a glass of wine, then Zona d’Ombra is the place for you. During his visit in Venice, Miguel Ángel fell in love with the Italian custom to accompany a good glass of wine with a selection of cheeses and mortadella. Once back in Barcelona he then decided to open a wine bar that runs by the same philosophy. Zona d’Ombra is in fact an ‘enoiteca‘, evolution of the traditional enoteca. Here you can not only buy wine, but drink it while tasting some fine food too.
This wine bar combines the Italian custom with traditional Spanish tapas, offering a true Mediterranean experience. At Zona d’Ombra they specialise in Catalonian wine. On their wine list (featuring more than 300 references) you will find wines both from Italy and Spain as well.
Openings hours: Monday to Sunday: 12:00 – 23:00
Address: Carrer de Salomó ben Adret,12, 08002, Barcelona
#2 Bodega Maestrazgo
Open since 1952, this wine bar is the oldest on ours and Barcelona’s list. Established almost 70 years ago by Agustin Moliner, it is now run by the third generation owner Jose Moliner. Passion for wine is what drives Bodega Maestrazgo. The thousands of bottles lining the shelves are the best selection from Catalonia, Spain and the world. Everybody knows that wine is always best enjoyed with fine food. Which is why you will also find a great selection of meats, jamons and cheeses to accompany your glass.
This gem is located quite close to the SANTA CATERINA MARKET, in the heart of El Born. So, if you are planning to visit the market, this is the best place to relax after. Want to have a closer experience? Book a tasting for you and your friends!

#4 Viblioteca – Bar de Vinos y Quesos
In the heart of GRÀCIA NEIGHBOURHOOD, this bright and modern library-inspired bar focuses on the nurturing of the spirit. The sommelier Yolanda Villegas created the name of Viblioteca by combining the Catalan words for wine and library. There are almost 150 different bottles focused on new flavours and denominations. Their curiosity to discover new tastes means that they change the available wines every couple of weeks.
To accompany your drink, you can choose from a list of more than 50 types of cheese from all over Europe. Besides not having a stove in their kitchen, the creativity at Viblioteca never slows down. In fact, you will find an ever changing selection of salads, tartars and carpaccio. Each dish is prepared with fresh and high-quality products.
Opening hours: Thursday – Sunday 13:00–15:30
Address: Carrer de les Guilleries, 10, 08012 Barcelona
Close by the Picasso Museum, Eldiset is the combination of a sleek nightspot and a wine-insider’s heaven. At Eldiset you can order beers and cocktails, but their trademark is of course the wine selection. 90 percent of which is Catalan. If you want to have a nibble, they have their own specialty in the kitchen too. The delicious torradas de pa de vidre, or glass-bread toasts: thin, crispy pieces of bread with load of toppings like veggies, fish, meat or cheese. Located in El Born, this wine bar is a must-visit on our list!
