Vineyard & Wine Tasting Experience

Summary

Enjoy an exclusive day out to a local winery in Penedes Region and taste 4 excellent wines and 4 glasses of cava paired with a wide variety of tapas. Drive through 2000 year-old vines accompanied by a local viticulturist in the vineyards and meet with a professional oenologist in the cellars to learn everything there is about wine-making!

Wine and gastronomy are part of Catalonia’s culture. Through this tour, delve into the Penedès region to learn all about the fascinating world of wine. The power of the sun and the Mediterranean Sea makes the Penedès a privileged territory for winemaking.

You will travel on a luxury private bus to visit 2 hand-picked selected wineries. Our first stop is a family-run boutique winery which has been cultivating vines for more than two thousand years. Upon arrival, you will be welcomed by an expert winemaker who will tell you about the history of this millennia old winery and guide you into the subterranean wine cellar. In this remarkable space, learn fascinating facts about grape varieties, vine growing, wine making and optimal conditions for its storage.

You will savour 4 charming wines in a stylish tasting room, accompanied by an assortment of gourmet delicatessen. Next, we will visit the traditional manor house (current residence of the owner family) and the vineyards to discover the art and secrets of winemaking.

To add a glamorous touch to the experience, continue the visit through the vineyards on board a convertible 4×4 car (approx. 40 min.) accompanied by your guide and a viticulturist, a true passionate expert! This is truly a unique and exclusive way to visit a stunning rural landscape with endless vineyards. Along the way, admire a Romanesque church nestled amongst the vineyards which belongs to the manor.

The second cellar visited is an equally historical winery specialising in cava, a naturally sparkling wine with an unmistakable flavour deeply rooted in Catalonia. An exclusive opportunity to enter the Capella, the heart of the cellar which is the oldest part of the winery. An enchanting candle-light ancient room where time stands still. After visiting the vineyard and cellar, taste 4 unique cavas. These are also paired by a selection of appetisers to enhance the experience. Raise your glass for a toast to a great wine experience!

    This was a great tour. Beautiful countryside, delicious wines (and plentiful tastings) with yummy tapas. Riding around in the vinyards in the 4 x 4 was a wonderul way to see the property. Our host, Anna, explained so much about the wine making process and the particulars of the winery. We got to tour the cellars and see a lot about their process. I was by myself but there were about 12 people in the group which was perfect, everyone had a lot of fun. Highly recommend this!

    We had a magical time on our Cava tasting tour. The country side was breathtaking and perfect. Our guide was very knowledgeable and exceptional! Flavius De Assis went above and beyond to make our tour unforgettable. He was our favorite tour guide on our entire stay in Spain. I wish we could have brought him everywhere with us! It’s people like Flavius that make your trip that much more special. Thank you for a wonderful day!
