Overview
Catalonia is famous for its cava, and the Penedes wine region is a short drive from Barcelona. On this small-group tour, combine cava tasting in Penedes with a delicious tapas lunch and a winery tour and tasting in the less-known Pla de Bages wine region.
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.

Hi there! Thank you for your nice review :) Toni will love to read it. His explanations are full of interesting and funny facts, it is always a pleasure to listen to him :) We see you chose the Wine, Tapas & Cava tour! Cava is often and unknown character among our visitors, but it is a very interesting and delicious drink, and us Catalans always find an excuse to have a glass of it (and if we don’t find it we make it up). It is always on the table for any celebration! We are very happy you enjoyed the tour! Spending the day between vines while drinking cava and wine sounds like a perfect plan! We are sure you learned a lot about the wine making process and the particular history and tradition of the wineries we visit. Best wishes :)

Our wine tour was a highlight of our trip to Barcelona! It was so nice to leave the city and head out into the countryside. Both of the wineries we visited were unique in their own way and we loved them both. I feel lucky to have had Alex as our tour guide....he was friendly,

Hi there! Thank you very much for your feedback!! We totally agree with you, Álex is so knowledgeable and passionate about sharing our culture that makes everyone around him feel the same enthusiasm :) We are very glad you liked the wineries and their tapas, wines and cavas. They are small cellars run by few people and they put a lot of effort on making every single one of their wines. We could even say they put a bit of their heart in them, because, in the end, they are following their family’s tradition. They grow local varieties and try to highlight their quality through their own personal way of wine and cava making. The wineries we visit don’t do these wines just because they have to but because they love to. A little bit of the history of their families is poured in each glass we taste, so we feel very honoured to be able to share this with all of you! Thank you so much for joining our tours!

Hello Laurie :) Thank you for your nice words! Sergio will be happy to know you enjoyed the tour with him. So great you liked the wine and tapas! Knowing a culture through their food and wine is a perfect and funny way of discovering new things. As you know, the wineries we visit are not big companies with a lot of production, but small family cellars that try to do the wines they like by respecting their tradition and local varieties. It is always rewarding to get a good feedback like yours :) Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hi Colleen! Thank you so much for your nice words! We are delighted to know you enjoyed the cava tour with us. Of course, with Carol as a guide it would have been very hard not to enjoy it, but it is always great to know you liked the wines and the cava! We are very picky when selecting the wineries we visit: they are not big wine or cava producers, but small family cellars that make the wine and cava respecting their roots and tradition. It is this particular way of caring about their history and explaining it through their production what makes these wineries so special and unique. And btw, thank you for noticing the skills of the driver :) It is not the easiest road to drive, but the views are absolutely worth the ride. Thanks for stopping by!
