Small-Group Tour: Traditional Food and Wine Day Trip from Barcelona

After pickup from a centrally located spot in Barcelona, relax in an air-conditioned minivan and drive deep into the heart of the Catalonian countryside. Admire the dramatic peak of Montserrat mountain as you approach a beautifully restored medieval farmhouse in a quaint village famed for its cheese-making prowess. 

Disembark to sample locally made cheese and wine while gazing at the picturesque scenery, and then continue to the former Benedictine monastery of Santa Cecília to delve into the rich culinary heritage of the region. Capture photographs of the grand Romanesque architecture and savor appetizing treats like peaches, honey, almonds and home-cured meats as your guide elaborates on local gastronomic traditions. 

Absorb more picturesque panoramas as you travel to the south face of Montserrat to discover an entirely different climate and landscape. Stroll through groves of olive trees and arrive at a 16th-century farmhouse to enrich your knowledge of olive oil pressing during a tour of the olive mill and its medieval water tanks. 

Feast on a traditional Catalan lunch made using locally grown produce (upgrade to a Sunday tour to enjoy local Catalan dishes) and then head into the heart of the Penedés, a verdant winemaking region renowned for its top-quality cava. Take an informative tour of a local winery’s subterranean cellars and barreling room and then conclude with a tasting session featuring four different varieties of cava and wine. 

Sit comfortable in your spacious vehicle during the return journey to Barcelona, where the tour concludes.

Loved this tour!!! A 90-minute brunch at 10:30 a.m., 45 minutes in Monserrat enough time to walk briskly and see the cathedral, a 90-minute lunch your choice on the menu, but avoid the lamb because it's full of oddly-cut bones, and a visit to a large, family-owned inery followed by a tasting of excellent cava and wine. Be careful to not step in sheep droppings at the winery! Highly recommended tour by me.

This was a great day! Our guide Fillipo was fantastic! We made an extra stop in Montserrat. There were only seven people in our group. The food was wonderful, the views were amazing!

Very nice meals and great wine. Our guide seemed only mildly interested in being with the group.

Had a great time with a group from Holland and a fellow American.Enrique was an accomodating host. Lunch in the country in the foothills of Montserrat...breathtaking! Not a fan of the wine at the vineyard we visited, but personnel there very informative. It was a great day!

We booked this trip outside of the tours included in our vacation package and it was well worth it. The first stop was in a small village where we had a typical Calalonia breakfast with wine. Lunch was in a rustic farm house in the middle of an olive grove. The food with wine was delicious and plentiful. Needless to say our journey to the next town was quite a lively one. Our guide, Enrique, was great. So friendly, great sense of humour and very knowledgeable about the area. He really made our trip memorable. If you're looking for a small group tour, spectacular mountain views with good food and wine don't miss this one. It was by far our favourite. Thank you Enrique!
