Wine and Cava Day Trip from Barcelona

Wine and Cava Day Trip from Barcelona

Catalonia is one of Spain’s most prominent wine-producing areas, boasting 11 appellations of origin. Vines have been growing in Catalonia for more than 2,000 years, and today Catalonia produces 380 million bottles of wine a year, including cava, which accounts for half of this production.

On this day trip from Barcelona, you’ll first visit Bodegues Jean Leon in the middle of the Penedès region. You will go on a guided tour and taste two different wines at this award-winning winery.

Then head to Bodegues Torres, where you will learn more about the production of various wines. You will see that it takes hard work to produce a good wine. At this winery, you’ll enjoy tastings of three wines, as well as three cheeses of the region.

Finally, visit Caves Freixenet, the last winery of your tour. Here is where you will learn about the process of making cava. You’ll sample two cavas, as well as some delicious tapas.

Your guide will be with you throughout your tour, answering questions and providing you with interesting information about the wine region.

This trip was important to us in that we really wanted to discover this wine region and see the cava production. Our guide was very nice and understanding when we were late getting out of the gift shops after each visit. The only problem is the process to get started so early with the waiting to load and collect all the participants. I wish we could meet at the coffee shop. Thank you.

A fun day with delicious wines and an interesting tour of three wineries - excellent!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

Don't think this is just another winery tour. Jean Leon might be, but the next two are certainly much more than we expected and well worth doing. We didn't expect touring by train or such good food and wine at Miguel Torres and Freixenet. You will not get these experiences doing it yourself! Highly recommended.
PS Buy any Jean Leon wine at Torres so you can make up the amount for your gift voucher.

Really interesting tour. From small to large vineyards. Wine and cheese tasting very good at Torres. All in all a great day trip. Although it might be a good idea to pack a lunch or offer lunch as although you have cheese and meats these are only tasters and by the end of the day you are very hungry
