NECTAR OF THE VINE
Tucked away between Carrer Londres and Carrer París, behind the beautiful Modernista facade of number 177, Vins & Co. is becoming one of the best Catalan wine sellers in town. With a focus on the local market, wines from Catalunya’s 12 wine-making areas adorn the shelves, each selected carefully from small producers within the regions. Being shown around the bodega by its co-founder Alex Sloer Kettlitz is like taking a historical tour around Catalunya via its vineyards. But Vins & Co. is not just a bodega; it’s a hub of wine-focused activity. The premises include intimate meeting spaces, conference rooms and areas for private hire—an ideal space for meetings and events over wine and cheese—and the in-house sommeliers are always on hand to help you choose (and taste) the perfect bottle. There are prices to suit even the most frugal wine lover, and if you sign up for their newsletter, you get a further 20 percent discount.
