The Barcelona Spanish Wine Lovers Group Message Board › Information about the festival of Catalan wines in Barcelona 8-10 June 2012
Dear Wine Lovers,
If you happen to be in the centre of Barcelona during the upcoming weekend, you are welcome to visit the Festival of Catalan wines "Vijuny", that will take place:
When: June 8-10 (Friday to Sunday)
Schedule: 11.00 to 21.00
Where: in front of the Santa Catarina market (Avenida Francesc Cambo, corner of Via Laietana - across the street from the Cathedral of Barcelona). Closest Metro station - Jaume I (L4 Yellow).
During these 3 days many Catalan wineries will present their wines. The focus will be on the autochthonous grape varieties and cavas.
Ticket price: for 10 EUR you will receive a glass and 10 tasting tickets - not bad!
However, the wineries will decide themselves, how many tickets they want you to pay for their wines - some wines can be more expensive than others.

Hope to see you there,
Enjoy your weekend!
