Description

This fun and informative day trip gives you the unique opportunity to sample a variety of fabulous wines and cavas (Spanish sparkling wines) and enjoy a great meal in an amazing environment.

We’ll visit two small vineyards in Alt Penedès, which is the upper part of the Penedès wine region, located about 40 minutes southwest of Barcelona. Alt Penedès is known for its small-batch boutique wines. The morning stop will include a brief tour as well as an introduction to the region and its wines, followed by a tasting of three different products.

Next, we’ll drive a short distance to the second vineyard, where we’ll venture out into the fields for a brief presentation about the history of the region, the grape varieties grown and the processes involved in making wine. We’ll then visit the cellar for an explanation about the equipment used, storage processes and bottling methods.

Afterwards, we’ll head to the tasting room for very generous tastings of whites, reds and a reserve cava. All of this will be enjoyed over a traditional Catalan meal including select cured meats and cheeses, olives, tomato salad, bread with tomatoes and olive oil and Spanish tortilla (similar to quiche).

Of course, everything you taste is available for purchase at the vineyards.

My colleague and I stayed a couple extra days after a week of business, and this was definitely a highlight. Saskia, our guide was awesome! She's very friendly, fun and knowledgeable about all things Barcelona, wine country and Spain in general.

She took us to two great wineries, where we got a great education on their grape growing process, history and tasting techniques. At the second place, we started with an authentic, leisurely lunch at a small winery restaurant where the wine make and his parents greeted us!

All in all, a fantastic day-- thanks so much to our superb guide Saskia!!

Best day of our vacation!
We had a most wonderful day with our delightful host. The sites, foods and stories were fantastic. We look forward to visiting again in the future. 😊
If you have any curiosity about or interest in Dali, this is a MUST
Andrew provided us with a wonderful trip into the world of Dali. He clearly knows a great deal about Dali's art and personal life, as well as the context in which Dali did his art. Andrew was also an engaging guide and our tour was never boring. It's clear that he tailors his tour to what we wanted and doesn't just repeat the same script! We also had a most delightful and delicious lunch on our day long trip. The trip is well worth it.
An excellent personalized tour
Our guide Martim was very knowledgeable and very personable. As we were four people who booked the tour together, Martim proposed several options for each leg of the tour. The result was a spectacular walk along the side of Montserrat, a great 3 course lunch with wine at a small restaurant (BO2) at the foothills of Montserrat and a private tour with the owner of the Can Descregut vinyard. The result was a very relaxing and memorable day in which we gained a better understanding and appreciation of the Catalan region and the passions of its people.

I would highly recommend this tour. Well worth the price! Thanks Martim!
