This was one of the best things we did all week. No one else showed up for the tour so we got a private tour for my husband, our 26 year old daughter and myself. We had a wonderful guide called Anna who was totally fun. Somehow the itinerary had gotten mixed up, but she reshuffled things around on the fly, and we ended up with what I suspect was a better tour than the original plan would have been. We started at a small family run winery where we were greeted by a young woman whose grand-father had had the vision to start making higher quality wine (the family has been growing wine grapes for more generations than they can count). She was relayed by her charming father who spent far more time with us than we were expecting. From there we went to Cordoniu wineries, which is one of the biggest in the world, and saw a completely different aspect of the wine industry. We ended our tour at a smallish boutique winery owned by a Barcelona restauranteur. We were again fortunate to be the only ones there, and to spend a great deal of time with our winery host. I would recommend this tour to everyone. Not only did we learn about wine, but also about history, and about Catalonian culture.
This was a great way to see Barcelona. Our tour guide Steve was very good. My only complaint would be that the group was bit large. So many people showed up that they split it into two groups, but they were still both quite large. This was one of the first things we did, and it gave us an excellent idea of the lay of the land.
