10:05am Meeting at the train station

In this Penedes wine tour, you will not only taste the finest wine and cava of Catalonia in a bucolic setting and in a private tour, you will also get to know the real people beside the cava and wine production in the Penedes area.
After meeting with your guide, we will find you a fit bike and helmet and get you started for the tour!

10:15am Beginning of the Penedes Wine Tour

In the morning, we will take you on a relaxed cycling tour and introduce you to the beautiful vineyards and peach trees of our postcard villages. Your guide is the fourth generation of winemaker in his family, which will give you plenty to talk about during the tour.
And since this Penedes Wine Tour will take you in your guide’s village and around, he will be able to show you all the secret places and amazing landscapes on the way to the wineries, as well as telling you about the history of wines from the Penedes.
You will then go to the first organic winery, where a guided visit and the first wine tasting of the day will be awaiting.

1:00pm Gastronomic lunch

In between both wineries, we will ride to a locals-only restaurant for a fantastic gastronomic menu. Prepare to indulge in traditional Catalan gastronomy paired with delightful local wines from small producers (if you have any food intolerance simply request it to us).
5

2:30pm Second Winery visit

In the afternoon we will ride to the second winery. Note that one of the two wineries will be a very small winery while the other will be a more established mid-size “boutique” winery. Both of them are family run and offering fantastic cavas and wines, produced only in very small quantities.
You will have a tasting of at least 2 organic wines in each winery. There will be at least 2 organic cavas to taste during the day to make sure you do not miss out on one of the Penedes’s culinary wonders.

4:55pm End of the Penedes Wine Tour
