Full day excursion to The Penedés (45minutes from Barcelona): The Penedés region has long been the largest wine region in Catalonia, and it is also Cava country, a great example of both tradition and modernity.
Clients will be collected at Barcelona accommodation at 09.00. Day will consist on visiting 2 highly-renowned wineries (masias) in small towns of the Penedés area. These ‘Masias’, or traditional Catalan farmsteads, are surrounded by vineyards and unspoilt countryside at the foothills of the Garraf mountain range, which is a spectacular experience in its own right.
We will enjoy these two visits in the morning. Our visits consist on private and guided visits, so our clients will be able to ask all questions in a charming and private environment.
At lunchtime we will head towards Sant Sadurni d´Anoia, capital of the Cava region, to a specialised gastronomic restaurant themed around the Cava culture. The “coupage” menu presents traditional Catalan cuisine from a new, modern perspective. After lunch our return to Barcelona is scheduled around 5:30pm.
