Calle Ferran (Photo 3 of 8)

Page Content

This is one of the Tapas bars on Calle Ferran. When you visit one of these bars try ordering Xacholli (pronounced Chackolli) a refreshing white wine that is special to this area of Spain. Xacholli is served in the most peculiar way. The waiter will pour the Xacholli from the bottle held about 0.5 M above the glass. This method of serving the wine aids aeration and helps release the flavour. Whether this is actually true or not I don't know but it certainly is a refreshing, light white wine.
