Overview
Enjoy a 7-hour tour departing from central Barcelona through the amazing scenery of the wine-making regions of Penedès and Pla de Bages. You will visit a family-run winery in each of these locations and taste their singular cavas and wines as you receive tips and hints from your guide and flavour local delicacies.
Highlights
  • Wine and cava tasting at boutique wineries outside Barcelona
  • Traditional tapas lunch, including regional specialties
  • Learn how cava is made from a wine expert guide
  • Small-group tour ensures more attention from your guide
What to Expect
Meet your guide in central Barcelona and travel to Penedes wine country aboard an air-conditioned minivan. On arrival at the first winery, Ca N’Estella, follow your guide on a tour of the winery and vineyards. Learn about the region’s famous cava, the different grapes and varietals, and the winemaking process. Sit down to enjoy a delicious lunch of Spanish tapas at the winery, made from seasonal ingredients and local specialties. Pair the bite-sized delicacies with a wine tasting of three different Rabetllat i Vidal cavas and sample the renowned sparkling wine for yourself. After lunch, continue to the Pla de Bages wine region, one of Catalonia’s smallest and least-known regions. Your destination is Oller del Mas, a family-run boutique winery housed in a beautiful 10th-century chateau. Meet the winemaker and sit down for a guided wine tasting accompanied by a selection of artisan cheeses. Your tour ends back in Barcelona.

The castle part is the second half of the trip. It was beautiful and interesting but busier. Still, the views are amazing. The first, however, the cava winery is priceless!
