Located just southwest of Barcelona, there is a reason why visitors come by the droves to visit the Penedes: it’s simply gorgeous! Not to mention the fact that it’s a hotbed for Spain’s sparkling wine, Cava, you can also find regional fowl such as the Penedés Black Cock and the Muscovy Duck. And typical of the Mediterranean, this region is overflowing with locally sourced meat, vegetables, fruit, game, mushrooms (a highlight!), egg based pastries, fish and seafoods coming from Vilanova y la Geltrú fish market. With charming villages and stunning sunsets, visiting never provides a dull moment. So grab a pair of sturdy shoes to hike the vineyards, a healthy appetite and a desire to savor some amazing wines, because this is not a tour to miss!
There is a hidden gem of wine country just 35 minutes away from Catalonia’s greatest city, Barcelona. We want you to experience this region, appreciate it’s beauty and taste it’s authenticity through its wines!
We only choose unique, small and authentic wine producers for our tours to make the experience a worthwhile souvenir to take back home. During this short day trip you will visit two separate boutique cellars, where you will be able to interact personally with the owner and winemaker, as well as tasting the wines/Cavas and learning how to disgorge a bottle of Cava.
