Join the Fun! Sangria & Tapas Cultural Workshop, Class Dates Available

Why is our Sangria & Tapas Cultural Workshop one of the most popular activities to do in Barcelona? It might be because we combine culture and a touch of craziness with an insightful food and wine experience. So this spring you can book one of several different timeslots to join the class.

Learn about the history of sangria making, as we “style” two very different sangria cocktails from old and new eras. This is a cocktail class with a twist! Each jug of sangria is paired with tapas from that era, and I’ll show you how to make some local, seasonal varieties as well.

Vegans and vegetarians can easily join in too, just let me know when you book which option you require.
