The Penedès district in Catalonia is known for its beautiful scenery and is world famous for the wineries there, where high quality wine and Cava – the Catalan Champagne – is made. A short drive from Barcelona will bring us to the Penedès. We will see at close quarters the vineyards and be introduced to the various processes for wine-making both past and present. Wine tours in Spain are most authentic: A professional vintner will escort us on the tour and show us around the private vineyard, the winery and the cellar where very generous tastings of both wine and cava will accompany the explanations.
We have chosen to concentrate on two wineries, a big cava producer and a smaller family-run winery in order to allow for a personal experience which could not be possible in the enormous wineries, where we would not be permitted to get so close to the product. Following the wine tour, we will continue tasting wines while enjoying a superior and typical Catalan meal in the cellar among the aging barrels. Before returning to Barcelona you will be given the opportunity to participate in the process of bottling a bottle of Cava. It will also be possible to buy some of the host’s products.
Wine tours in Spain are most recommended!
