If you find yourself strolling around the Gothic district, looking for a nice spot where to drink some good wine and eventually buy some bottles, Zona d’Ombra is the answer. 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 on 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.
The wine bar combines the Italian custom with the Spanish tradition of tapas, offering a true Mediterranean experience. At Zona d’Ombra they are specialized in Catalan wine. But in their list, that features more than 300 references, you will find wines both from Italy and Spain as well.
