Barcelona”s best food and drink will be under public scrutiny at the Catalan Wine and Cava Show between September 17th and 24th.
The annual festival is held in the town of Maremagnum, and wines from across the region will be on show to tie in with the grape harvest.
More than 400 wine producers from Catalonia and Alt Penedes will have stalls set up at the show. A host of different businesses from all over the wine industry gather to compare and contrast their produce.
Cava is key to the show, as the dry and yeasty-flavoured beverage originates from Sab Sadurni de Noya, only 30 kilometres from the city of Barcelona, and many consider the wine to be better than champagne.
The show consists of a wide range of traditional producers and is worth a visit for anyone who may be holidaying in the region in late September.
The grape harvest is in fact becoming earlier each year as the effects of global warming cause the crop to ripen earlier than ever before.
