Ecological wines have been flourishing in all kinds of establishments. To cut short on terminology, we consider that to qualify as an ecological wine, crops require a limitation on sulphates addition and the exclusion of synthetic chemicals (as much as possible).
Today, many restaurants offer these wines as their popularity grows among customers. Here is our selection of Barcelona restaurants with ecological wines, whether you are passing through the city or on vacation.
El Petit Celler
More than a restaurant, El Petit Celler is a sensory experience to taste a variety of wines. They recently opened “Tribut”, a space inside El Petit Celler where you can taste over 250 of the best wines. Beside “Tribut”, you’ll find “La Vermuteria” where you can enjoy a great selection of vermouths accompanied by the best preserved and canned food. As it was originally a store, you can still find many bottles to bring home on their endless shelves, including a substantial choice of ecological wines.
In Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter, this restaurant stands out for its high-quality and locally-produced food (also called “km 0”): eggs from Calaf, rice from the Ebro Delta and, of course, a good wine list from Catalan and Spanish DOs, such as the ecological Mureda, from DO Castilla-La Mancha, both red and white.
