DESCRIPTION

If you’re into great wines, good food and discovering local life, you’ll love our private Penedes Wine Tour. We’ll take you to 2 small boutique organic wineries producing renowned, small-batch wines in the heart of the locals’ favorite wine area, “El Penedes”. Together with your guide, an expert in finding fantastic, small and undiscovered wineries, you’ll spend a wonderful day tasting signature wines and getting to know the real people behind the cava and wine production in the Penedes.

The Penedes wine area is located only 30 minutes drive away from Barcelona and is home to over 300 wine producers, thus offering a large variety of wines to be discovered. Your wine journey will include a selection of incredible premium cavas, red, whites, roses or the ancestral, a century-old sparkling white wine reflecting the great tradition of wine in Catalonia. In total, no less than 8 tastings of the finest organic, small-batch wines and cava are included in this private Barcelona wine tour.

For lunch, we’ll take you to a local’s only restaurant to indulge in traditional flavors– prepare to feast like never before! We sometimes met friendly, influent winemakers of the area over lunch. We obviously can’t guarantee this will happen every time but we can guarantee you the meal will make it to the highlights of your day!

All the wineries we’ll take you to are always small, organic and family-run. And all the visits will always be fully private and run by the winery owner or the winemaker him/herself, not just with any guide. We’ll always make sure you get an authentic and personalized experience you won’t find in any of the large-scale tour companies. Expect to make great encounters, learn about local grapes and taste absolutely unique organic wines, most of them elaborated using indigenous grapes.

This private Penedes wine tour is definitely a must for all those who wish to enjoy a unique high-end local food and wine experience, far off the tourist radar. As with all our other experiences, we have very limited availabilities and would highly recommend you to request (and book) well in advance!

NOTES

1. We’d love to personalize this experience to perfectly fit your tastes and needs. Feel free to let us know about your wine preferences, past experience with wine tours, and whether you’re interested to visit micro-wineries or to see out-of-the-ordinary wineries. We love wine and know plenty of extraordinary wineries that we may not dare offering to everyone!

We are currently looking for options to reduce the CO2 emissions for this experience. We aim to use hybrid or electric vehicles on the long term, as public transportation is not available in the area.

Local food logo I Barcelona Slow Travel

Both wineries offer local wines, most of them being made from local grapes. The food served at the restaurant is local and seasonal and the dishes are made following traditional Catalan recipes.

Organic logo I Barcelona Slow Travel

All the wineries we visit in our Penedes Wine Tour are certified organic. The restaurants we go to offer local and seasonal ingredients mostly sourced from local artisans. Some of the ingredients are organic, although not all of them (we’re pressing them to add more to the menu, but it takes time!).

Homemade logo I Barcelona Slow Travel

The guide, the wineries and the restaurant all have strict policies of recycling. All the plastic, glass and paper waste produced is recycled. Non-recycled waste in this Barcelona wine tour is close to 0.
