Barcelona Wine Tour: the Penedès region
We have chosen the Penedès Wine region for our Barcelona Wine Tour for several reasons. Firstly, it is close to Barcelona. Secondly, it is an area steeped in culture and tradition. Next, it provides a great cross-section of wine varieties and styles with some fantastic and innovative producers. Finally, it is home to Spain’s sparkling wine: Cava.
Barcelona Wine Tour: what are you going to see?
As you know, all of our tours are private. That means everything can be custom designed and personalized to your interests and needs. Here is what we usually recommend while in the Penedès Wine Region:
Cava – Barcelona’s sparkling wine
We will start the tour with a visit to a Family-run Cava winery. This high-end producer still uses the traditional, hand-crafted method. They will explain how the traditional and modern approaches are different. Then, of course, you will have the chance to taste for yourselves. The result is an outstanding sparkling wine which you are sure to love.
Barcelona winery – why smaller is better
Our next stop is to an organic winery. In today’s world we are returning to smaller, environmentally friendly producers. That means this is what you are looking for. A high-quality product from innovative and organic methods. Take a walk through the vineyard itself. Discover the history of the land. Then, learn about the development of the wine culture. Finally, sample the goods. Choose between red wine, white wine, rosé, or even a dessert wine.
Add a few extra options to enjoy the tour even more!
We also have options to complete your day.
- Enjoy a picnic lunch overlooking the vineyard or you can choose to enjoy lunch at a typical restaurantin the region before returning to Barcelona.
