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.
