EL PENEDÈS & WINE COUNTRY
Descend generations-old cellars, uncork vintage cava and picnic in the vineyards
GOTHIC QUARTER TOUR
The Penedès is a lush region of rolling hills and a temperate Mediterranean climate. Less than 1 hour from Barcelona it makes for an ideal Half Day excursion.
On this privately led experience we visit two family-run, award-winning wineries, allowing guests to learn about the cava making process from seed to bottle, descend into generations-old cellars and taste several vintage Gran Reserve cavas.
From ancestral practices to bio-dynamic wine making, this excursion aims to give a fuller understanding of the vital role cava plays in celebrating day to day Catalan culture as well as meeting the people & families who dedicate their lives to it.
Following the tasting is a traditional Catalan picnic in the vineyards set alongside olive, almond and pomegranate trees and an idyllic Mediterranean landscape.
The excursion includes an expert-led private guide; round trip train to El Penedès & private transportation within El Penedès.
Thank you so much Jonathan. We so enjoyed meeting and spending time with you. We will repeat next summer!
