Barcelona
Penedes Wine Tour
This chauffeured excursion is for wine lovers visiting Barcelona and seeking out a VIP experience. The ancient wine region of Penedès has been producing wine since Phoenician times, but it wasn't the birth of Cava - Spanish sparkling wine made in the traditional Champagne method - that the region gained international fame. While visiting two boutique wineries, you'll not only explore their vineyards and taste their wines, but you'll desgorge a bottle of Cava with the winemaker's themselves! Lunch will be served in a secreted-away traditional restaurant where hand-made dishes will feature ingredients such as 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.

Highlights:

  • Spend the day with a charismatic, English speaking wine guide with over two decades of regional expertise
  • Visit two world-renown wineries deep in the Penedes region
  • Enjoy a leisurely lunch in a local restaurant pairing regional wines with traditional Catalan cuisine
  • Private English speaking driver to chauffeur you throughout the day

I just wanted to take a moment to let you know what a great time we had on the wine tour. Nico was an amazing guide and we really felt we got to know the region and develop an appreciation for wine in the Penedes region. I will definitely be recommending you if any of my contacts head to the area.
