Are you a wine lover? Have you ever been on a wine cellar? Do you enjoy wine tastings? Did you know there is a wine country area just one hour drive of Barcelona?

The Penedes county is the cradle of Cava, the local sparkling, and one of the best wine regions near Barcelona. Just in the city of Sant Sadurni d’Anoia there are over a hundred wineries. But going on your own can be tricky: taking the train, crossing the bridge over the river to the village and navigating the streets, then finding a winery that is open… You might want to join a group tour, but most tour operators just take you to the large industrial wineries, not the small family-owned ones that have that authentic feel (and award-winning wines).

We have created this tour to take you to those wineries that are unique for the beauty of their cellars, their family history, their traditional processes and of course, their wonderful wines. Places you wouldn’t find on your own, but that will become a highlight of your trip.

ADD LUNCH TO YOUR TOUR

Add a couple of extra hours, so after the second cellar you can be taken on a short ride across the vineyards a local restaurant where you’ll be able to enjoy a traditional Catalan lunch.

IS THIS TOUR RIGHT FOR YOU?

This tour is perfect for those who are into wine and enjoy visiting cellars and tasting wine. August through December are the busiest, and therefore, more exciting times at the winery: from the harvest and initial wine making, to the preparation for the big Christmas sales.

If you are traveling with kids, some wineries can offer them water or grape juice during the tasting. But unless your whole family is into wine and your kids have already an interest in it, we recommend the Chocolate & Wine tour for families.

If you have walking issues or use a wheelchair, take into account that there are stairs to get to the cellars in most wineries: let us know in advance so we can take you to a winery with no stairs.

If you are up for a longer day, add a couple of hours to turn your tour into a full day and stay for lunch in the wine country, or consider mixing the wine country with some other destination (for instance, our Montserrat Wine Tour).

If you are a lot into wine, check out our other Barcelona winery tours.

REVIEWS FROM TRAVELERS LIKE YOU

BeerWoody (Linköoing, Sweeden)

It was about 40 min drive to our first stop and it was an organic farming winery. it was very cozy and after the walk in the cellar where they explained how they made wine there was a tasting. After the tasting you could purchase their products. Then we went to the other cellar and it was a cava-only winery which had specialized on ageing cava. This place was the high-point for me as the family behind the winery were very keen on keeping their products at excellent quality. The “grandpa” of the family also kept very old equipment and barrels that where several hundred years old so we got a picture of how they made wine back then. The tasting here was very exciting as they even had “ice-wine” and marc and not just cava. On our way back to the hotel we got tips on where to eat near our hotel and it was excellent food there! Marta and the driver where very friendly and everyone had a very good time!

Marta took us to the wine country to two wine makers. We can highly recommend Gramona – it was an excellent tour. The 2nd wine maker was also great! We had a wonderful lunch which involved into a unique experience with local winemakers.

SuzyQTraveler (Seattle, Washington, USA)

We had so much fun on our half day wine tour with Miriam! She is well informed about the wineries, wine making process, and wine history of the region. Plus along the way she was generous with her knowledge of the city and country, adding so much valuable information to our trip. We visited two wineries, both with excellent wines, and very good prices. It was nice to get out of the city and see the surrounding area. We had so much fun and I could have spent much more time with her.
