Espinaler, a Generational Story

In 1896, El Espinaler took root when Miquel Riera y Prat moved from his farm near the Espinal bridge (Argentona, Barcelona) to settle in Vilassar de Mar (Barcelona). There he opened the Espinaler tavern, offering the famous "small glass" which attracted locals and created a lively meeting place.

In 1946, Joan Tapias Riera took the reins of the business, bringing a radical change by introducing one of the best vermouths of the time. This made El Espinaler a must-visit reference in the region. Today, David and Miki Tapias, the great-great-grandsons of the founder, represent the fifth generation, perpetuating the original philosophy: to offer the highest quality products, prepared and packaged at the optimal time.
