How to Select Seasonal Wine in Barcelona

In this latest article, we dive into how to select seasonal wine in Barcelona with a little help from our expert writers.

What denotes a seasonal wine?

Put simply, seasonal wine refers to drinks that align and are commonly drunk and produced in either spring, summer, autumn or winter. While taste has a big part to play when deciding on seasonal wine, colour also comes into the equation. For example, many paler wines are considered to be summer or spring wines, whereas darker wines are reserved for colder winter months.

The texture of the wine is also taken into consideration, with lighter and crisper drinks reserved for summer days, and heavier, thicker options kept for winter. It is also thought that lighter wines help to quench thirst during the height of hot summer, whereas heavier wines pair well with the comfort food of autumn and winter.

Find below a seasonal guide to wine, to help you make informed choices when travelling abroad in cities like Barcelona:


During summer a huge focus is placed upon crisp, white whites. These prove the most refreshing to drink and also pair well with the lighter foods we lean towards during the warmer months. Paler, white wines also tend to have a lower alcohol level, meaning that you remain more dehydrated on particularly hot days.

Some popular seasonal summer wines include Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Albarino and Muscadet. Rose is also an incredibly popular option during summer, and are a sweet and refreshing option after a long day walking around Barcelona.


Winter is when red wine has its chance to shine. These wines are considered especially warming and pair well with the heavier comfort foods most people feel drawn to when the cold sets in. Many of the flavours and notes of red wine complement those found in classic winter foods.

When taking a winter stroll or walking tour through Barcelona, you might want to sample a glass or two of Priorat. This red wine is one of the most sought-after in the city and a must-have on your next trip.


When it comes to springtime wines, what you're really looking for is versatility. Put simply, you want a wine that can cope with both the mixture of chilly and warm days commonly found in Spring.

As for how to settle down for the night in Barcelona, no Spring evening is complete without a classic glass of Cava.


The signalling of autumn means that the evenings around Catalonia are about to get shorter and the days colder. Seasonal Autumn wines also need a fair amount of versatility, to keep you warm on those chilly evenings.

Here you would recommend you're best opting for a local darker rose that provides a fresh, yet warming, sweetness.
