The trip we will take to this region will be a private tour, and will include wine tasting in local wine cellars in the lovely Penedes region, known the world over for its wine. This is a tour which enables us to get acquainted with the process of wine making both in the past and today.
We have chosen to concentrate on 2 wineries, the biggest cava producer, and the smaller family-run winery in order to allow for a personal experience which could not be possible in the enormous wineries, where we would not be permitted to get close to the product!
A short drive from Barcelona will get us to the Penedes region where we will be joined by a professional vintner and wine-grower who will take us to his vineyard and his winery, and offer generous tastes of his wine and cava. You will be able to ask questions and learn everything you ever wanted to know about Spanish (Catalan) wine and cava. You will be given information about wine-making in the past and today.
In the cellar, among the oak casks and the aging bottles, you will enjoy tasting wines which will accompany a typical and delicious Catalan meal prepared by experts.
Before returning to Barcelona you will be given the opportunity to participate in the process of bottling a bottle of cava. It will also be possible to buy some of the host's products.
