Top ways to experience nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
How to get there
  • Barceloneta • 4 min walk

Quint shop in Nice neighbourhood BUT very rude and conacending staff.
Went in to by a piece of manchego cheese as a gift for a friend, they staff didn't seem very interested to
help us at all. Doesn't seem like they care much for tourists.
As we went to pay, two of the employees that were helping us blatantly stood right in front of us
talking about us and insulting us in
Spanish, for instance how we had
checked the price on the cheese and
other spiteful comments, it was like
entertainment for them. And I have a
feeling they do this ALOT!
A tip for the staff (if you read this) just cause someone doesn't
Speak Spanish (a bit rusty so don't
feel comfortable speaking it much
anymore) doesn't mean they can't
understand what you are saying, I'm
fluent in English, Swedish and know
Italian and did Spanish in school.
Also, people come to enjoy your
amazing city and everything it has to
offer, especially your wonderful
cousine. You have no idea who we are,
where we come from or how much money
we have to spend. None of this should
even matter, you should treat everyone the same and show them the same respect you would like if you
where visiting their city. Being
stuck up you a.. and think you are better than someone is not a appealing trait in your buissness or in life.
I would have easy got more items in here hadn't it been for feeling so unwelcome. Having worked in the service and restaurant buissness for over 15 years in very high standard restaurants, amongst them a Spanish one, I'm very well aware of what I want and know good food.

I wouldn't recommend this shop to anyone, there are so many lovely delis and authentic food shops with amazing warm and welcoming service in Barcelona. Luckily enough this didn't ruin the amazing weekend we had in this beautiful city.

This is definitely the spot to buy your wine. The selection is unbelievable and there are bottles for every taste and price range. Staff are helpful and knowledgeable. All in all an incredibly fun shopping experience.

We dined at the 2 star Michelin restaurant Lasarte and here we taste an amazing Brandy. I asked the waiter where I could buy this Brandy and he directed me to Vila Vini Teca. This wine and spirits shop is truly amazing. The prices are reasonable compared to other shops in Barcelona.

Amazing selection of wines. Since I'm only a newbie to wine, I didn't even know where to begin, but the staff was extremely helpful and not even slightly snobbish. Be prepared to wait a while to be attended, but in return, you'll get 100% focus.

I'm actually quite proud of the norwegian wine store "Vinmonopolet" (yes it's a monopoly) and their level of knowledge, but this was a quite different experience, especially since some of the wines came from only a few miles away. Thus they could tell personal stories of the producers and their family background. We don't usually get that in Norway. It's cool to bring home a wine with a little story and special memories.

The place is an absolute must visit for wine enthusiasts. The staff was super helpfull and they definitely know the products they are selling. Despite of this, the prices were reasonable. There were also nice selection of quality spirits available.

Finally found a wine store that actually stores their wine in air conditioning, lying down (not upright in a warm room!) Situated in the older area of the city, walking distance to our tourist hotel, this store is a treasure trove with an extensive range of international and local wines. Well worth a visit!!

The shop is intimidating! Wines stacked floor to ceiling, including a 2nd floor catwalk.
But the salesman could not have been more helpful and approachable. Looking for 2 interesting bottles of regional wine, we gave him our price range (15-20Euro), and he easily found four bottles which he described in detail. We ended up taking all 4! Great selection of wines from all over Spain, not just Catalonia. Multiple languages spoken. Great location in the old quarter.

My husband likes to bring wine back as holiday souvenirs (??) Having gone to Monvinic and been disappointed I found this on the web so we went to visit.

Brilliant - if you look at the photos each bottle is different (supplies are stored away) so there is a huge variety. It was a shame another reviewer felt they were ignored by staff as that can be really irritating, but we did not find that - we found them extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

They also have a deli next door which looked fabulous although we did not go in. I would also suggest checking their website as they do a lot of tasting sessions and events.

Came home with four 'souvenirs'!!

Visited this wine shop on the strength of the recommendations here. I really enjoy my wine, and while I know what I like, I would always like a helpful hand in choosing a local 'speciality'. I didn't get that here. I was pretty much ignored by the staff (who spent their time shouting up and down the stairs to each other). Be careful that you check the price listed in per bottle, not per case! I eventually picked a wine that was more than satisfactory - but it was from a vineyard which I was familiar with, so no great adventure there.
Good selection, but you may be left to your own devices choosing your evening tipple!
