What You Can Expect

Small-Group Cava and Wine Day Trip from Barcelona

Small-Group Cava and Wine Day Trip from Barcelona

Greet your guide in a central Barcelona location and climb aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned minivan for the scenic drive into the heart of the Penedés region. Listen as your professional guide provides the historical and geological context of the area and then arrive at your first stop, a traditional cava production house. 

Tour the winery with a knowledgeable staff member and descend into the underground cellars where the first bottle of cava was produced 150 years ago. Hear about technological innovations that have transformed production processes and then sample some of the winery’s emblematic varieties at the end of your enriching tour. 

Next, head to a small, family-run winery that prides itself on its artisan cava-making process. Enrich your knowledge of alternative manufacturing methods and then sample a delicate cava considered one of the best in Spain. Revitalize with a traditional Spanish lunch in a local village (own expense) and then return to your comfortable coach for the journey to your next destination. 

Arrive at an organic winery specializing in white and red wines and embark on a guided tour of the establishment’s cellars and vineyards. Relax in the ambient bar as you pleasure your palate with a selection of refined wines and then admire the rural scenery as you travel back to Barcelona, where the tour concludes.

What a great tour !! I enjoyed so much visiting these 3 wineries. You will learn a lot from the different guides in each winery and they will explain all the secrets of producing their wines. We enjoyed a lot and we tried a lot of wines. At the end of the day we came back at our hotel happy. Nice driver, gave me a lot of tips about Catalonia traditions. A must do!!

The one day CAVA tour from Barcelona was, was fantastic!!! Although it lasted about 8 hours I was never bored due to the constant information and entertainment which was arranged by our very well versed guide. We visited 2 wineries, both of whom gave us an in depth experience of vinti and viniculture of their respective farms, and although the tour of Frexinett was commercial and unpersonal, it fitted in well with our itinerary. The fact that there were only 4 attendees made it personal and intimate and a day in the vineyards and cellars is highly recommendable with this tour company.

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.
