My partner and I chose this trip as we are wine tasting beginners and wanted a fun and factual trip. We were picked up in a comfy mini bus and the tour guide told us about Barcelona's history whilst we drove to Monstserrat. We chose the half day option so only stayed there a short time which was perfect for us. We then visited the castle where the wine is produced which was beautiful. The tour guide was a different person called Juan who was also very friendly and knowledgeable, showing us around the castle and explaining the wine making process. We then had tapas and did the wine tasting- it was the perfect experience. I highly recommend this trip, it was the highlight of our holiday in Barcelona.
Excellent tour. Although Montserrat was under haze and clouds, the guide managed to meet us early enough to get entrance into the cathedral before the crowds. At 11am the doors were closed to visitors. The guide then met us at the vineyards for a most extensive discussion of winemaking. We then entered the wine cellar for delicious plate of meats and cheeses with three wine tastings. She shared her knowledge with us and I feel that I walked away with an understanding of the making and tasting of wine far beyond expectation.
We had a great time on this trip. Highly recommend it if you want a half day trip. The trip to Monserrat was beautiful, saw what we needed to see and then we were off for wine tasting! The winery was small and very private so we felt like we could take our time with the tour without being rushed. The tasting was great. 3 different wines and lots of tapas. Our guide. Paulina, was excellent, very knowledgeable and down to earth. Overall a great trip!
Outstanding visit to vineyards and winery of Castle Estate. Best description of the grape growing/ wine making process I have heard. Learnt a lot. And sampled some outstanding wines. Trip up Montserrat was interesting. Krall was an outstanding guide.
We had a great time on the afternoon wine tasting tour. Very intimate, learned a lot and loved the wine tasting. We would highly recommend.
My husband and I recently took the half day tour . We really enjoyed it . It was a great way to get a short visit to Montserrat with a very informed guide and then spend a lovely time at the winery. We would highly recommend this tour.
Great trip to a beautiful winery outside Barcelona. The guide was very knowledgeable and the wines were great too!
For us the wine tasting was the reason for this tour which was great because the stop at Montserrat was a very rushed short stop.
The winery tour was fun and informative and is a great place to take some good photo's. The pairing was awesome, much more than cheese at ours. The tasting was led by a very personable and entertaining man, I just cannot remember his name. Paulina was our tour guide and we enjoyed her as well.
We ended up on a private tour because no one else signed up and it was just wonderful! The winery was beautiful and we really did learn so much about wine! When they say tasting though, they really mean it. Don't come hungry!
We decided to go on this tour last minute and so happy that we did. We had a fantastic time! The tour was interesting and beautiful and the wine was amazing! We bought 3 bottles!
The guides were passionate and informative, you are not only visiting a winery, but you are learning history as well. Fantastic tour, wish we could have done it twice! This is a must see if you are visiting Barcelona!
Cruz was an amazing guide. she was knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating and lots of fun! I would recommend this tour if you are a wine enthusiat and want to visit the charming and enchanting Montserrat village. We had a group of 7 and it was perfect size! The wine and cheese tasting was a perfect way to end the tour. I would highly recommend Castlexperience for any tour. Thank you for a great experience.
Best wine tour I've been on...ever. Very Knowledgeable and fun. And great food. Cruz and Albert know how to do it right.
This tour was great! The highlight of our Barcelona trip. The tour guide, Cruz, was so knowledgable and thorough. It was a small group (7 people) so very intimate and interactive. I would highly recommend Castlexperience for any tour. We're booking another before we leave!
I really enjoyed the tour not only because the winery was great, but also our tour guide, Matt (I'm sorry if I spelled your name wrong) was very friendly and full of knowledge about wine. She is the one to teach us about the real pleasure about wine!! I was also comfortable with the cozy atmosphere in a small group. If it's possible, it may be more interesting to have some interactions with the people from the winery!! Strongly recommended if you are looking for time-saving and authentic wine tasting experience around Barcelona.
