Bringing together three popular elements of Catalan culture, music, wine and gastronomy, this annual festival organises intimate concerts (many of them outdoors) in wineries around the Penedès, Bagès and Empordà areas of Catalonia. Vinya means 'vine' in Catalan, and sons translates as 'sounds', describing the fusion of these two art forms, and during the summer months numerous events around the region showcase their natural relationship. Combining beautiful Catalan landscapes, the warm evenings of the season, quality musical performances, and tastings of local wines, cavas and other specialities, it's the ideal marriage of food, drink and entertainment.
Among the artists taking part, you might hear a chamber orchestra, a barbershop quartet or a rising Catalan pop star. What's more, VinyaSons is an excellent opportunity to sample local wine and cava varieties you might not yet be familiar with, and discover why Catalan wines are increasingly popular with critics and the public alike.
The Hotel Tapa Tour is an initiative designed to promote hotel cuisine through tapas, those tasty morsels that are so deeply rooted in Spanish popular culture. The challenge is to bring hotel cuisine to the outside world and show to both visitors from abroad and locals that it is a authentic culinary option when deciding where to eat out.
Numerous five-star and five-star GL hotels across the city are taking part in this signature-tapa trail/competition in which local produce, gastronomic innovation and sustainability plays a decisive role.
As a new initiative, and to provide a more in-depth knowledge of their culinary offer, the hotels taking part will also be offering a tasting menu.
The festival of Sant Joan (Saint John in English) is one of the most popular festivals among the residents of Barcelona. It commemorates the arrival of summer, and the occasion is marked with bonfires and fireworks, as has been the traditional way of doing it for generations.
Throughout the city people burn piles of wood and old furniture, while fireworks and firecrackers fill the air throughout the night. Music and popular festivities flood the streets, the squares and the beach.
The coca de Sant Joan (a sweet flat bread traditionally topped with fruit and pine nuts, although other varieties are also available) is a must-try. It's a delicious dessert that's typical of the night of Saint John and is usually eaten accompanied by a glass or two of cava. And even though this is really the shortest night of the year, for many people it is, without a doubt, the longest one.
Celebrate #SantJoan at #MiradorColom! Come to the monument, make a wine tasting ... and you can taste the delicious coca of the Mistral and Elias 1917 bakeries!
