Vilarnau Calcotada Trip Feb 2017 (221)

January 10, 2019

Celebrate the Catalan way with Vilarnau Calçotada events!

A Calçotada is a Spanish tradition where the people of Catalonia get together to celebrate the humble calçot onion that comes into season between January and March. A calçot is a type of onion, commonly found in Tarragona province close to the sea. These sweet, mild onions take centre stage at these celebrations. They are grilled on the barbeque, dipped in romesco sauce and traditionally served on terracotta tiles. The perfect accompaniment is Vilarnau Cava served from a porrón. We recommend wearing a Vilarnau bib when drinking from the porron as this can get messy!
