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.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2014

The Wine and Cava day trip from Barcelona was really fun. It was wonderful to see the countryside outside of Barcelona and learn about the wine making business. The wines (and cheeses) we tasted were delicious. I would definitely do it again and/or recommend it to anyone.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

This was a WONDERFUL excursion while in Barcelona. In fact, probably my favorite thing that we did! Each winery was beautiful and the group was small enough so there was time to ask questions. I loved the cheese and wine pairings at Torres winery! Delicious. My only complaint would be to have a little more time to shop/look around at each winery. 30 minutes seems like enough, but it sure went by quickly. All in all, totally worth the money and I would do it again in a heartbeat!
