“A tremendous new winebar”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

On my first night in Barcelona I came across MesDvi, which is in the Poblenou area, near the Barcelona Convention Centre. I had a couple of very pleasant glasses of wine and conversation with David, one of the owners. I learned from him that 'MesDvi' is a pun. 'Mes' in Catalan means more and 'Dvi' can either mean 'of wine' or be a reference to his name. He owns a wine stores a few doors down the street that has been open for a few years. As I don't speak Spanish or Catalan, it was great to talk wine with him in English and French. Every night that I didn't have a function I was there to explore more Catalan wines and chat more with these friendly guys. I introduced several others to the spot and there was universal enthusiasm.

David and his partner, Xevi (pronounced Chevy), are both sommeliers and their knowledge comes through in their selection of wines. The wines by the glass are very good and give a great representation of what is available in Catalunya and Spain. They also include a few wines from other countries too. And their prices are tremendous - 1.50 to 4 euros per glass.

They also have very good cheese and charcuterie plates. Highlights for me were a Catalan aged goat cheese coated in ash called Bauma and their Iberian ham.

If you are in Barcelona for a conference at the CCIB, do yourself a favor and head towards the Ramble de Poblenou and spend some time at MesDvi. If you're walking from the CCIB main hotels, you'll find Carrer Maria Aguilo one block to the north (the direction of the CCIB). Even if you're in the downtown area of Barcelona, it is worth a trip on the metro out to the Poblenou station, from which it's about a 3-4 block walk to MesDvi. After some wine and tapas to start the evening you can enjoy one of the good restaurants in the area and also get a feel for a non-touristy Barcelona neighborhood.
