BEST BARCELONA CAVA TOURS AND WINE TOURS
A trip to the Penedes Wine Country
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.

WHY YOU'LL LOVE THIS TOUR
HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS PRIVATE BARCELONA WINERY TOUR:
(Cava or wine)
(Full Days Only)
(or 8 hours if you decide to stay for lunch in the wine country).
AFTERNOON TOURS: Not available
AVAILABLE: Every day.
WEEKEND LIMITATIONS: During the weekends the cellars only offer tours in Catalan or Spanish, as that’s when the local public can go. Your guide will be translating for you in a low voice, in order not to disturb the rest of the visitors. Groups might also be larger than during the week, too, for the same reason.
In the Summer, remember to bring a light jacket because inside the cellar the temperature is fresh.
We might be sharing the visit of the winery with other people, as it ultimately depends on the cellar. Sometimes private tour supplement is available - ASK US.
INCLUSIONS, EXCLUSIONS & PRICING
TAILOR THIS TOUR TO YOUR UNIQUE NEEDS
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).
