Unlike tapas, which are little dishes that usually constitute a meal, hacer un vermut is merely the lead up to the long, late Catalan lunch. It is an irreplaceable element of social life in Catalonia. Being an aperitif wine, vermouth stimulates the appetite, so in Barcelona it is traditionally drunk along with small snacks, such as crunchy green olives, anchovies cured in extra virgin olive oil, a tin of mussels in spicy sauce, chips or other small snacks. The local experts at FoodWineTours have chosen a great selection of stops along the way to introduce you to this entertaining custom. The tour begins at 09:30 am at the entrance to Santa Monica Arts Center. On our approximately two-and-a-half-hour vermouth and tapas tour, your gourmet guide will explain the Catalonian custom of vermouth, Catalan culture, a description of the typical snacks eaten with vermouth and an introduction to the different neighborhoods visited.
