Six of Barcelona's most fashionable restaurants are hosting the Gala by the Glass action, a unique gastronomic experience that offers the perfect pairing to enjoy a glass of Vallformosa Gala Brut Nature Reserva.
For two weeks, from Wednesday 14 December to Tuesday 27 December, the 6 selected restaurants will offer a glass of Vallformosa Gala when ordering a tapa specially designed to pair with this sparkling wine, one of the winery's most exclusive references.
Vallformosa Gala is a cava that leaves no one indifferent and that captivates not only for its refined bubbles, but also for the careful design of its bottle, an elegance that could only be accompanied by one of the most iconic glasses of all time: the Pompadour glass, modelled on Marie Antoinette's left breast or, as popular culture was quick to point out, that of the king's mistress, Madame de Pompadour.
Vallformosa Gala is one of Vallformosa's most celebrated sparklings, best sparkling wine producer of the year, according to the prestigious international competition Berliner Wine Trophy, as well as Best Winery of 2023 for the third consecutive year at the Vinari awards. Among the medals collected by this sparkling wine, complex and elegant, with citrus and fruity notes, it is worth mentioning the Grand Gold recently awarded at the international benchmark Gilbert & Gaillard International Challenge.
