DESCRIPTION

If you’re into wine, food and discovering local life, you’ll love our Penedes Wine Tour. We’ll take you to 2 small, beautiful and intimate family-run wineries in the heart of the locals’ favorite wine area, “El Penedes”. Together with your guide, a fourth generation winemaker of the Penedes, you’ll not only have (at least!) 6 tastings of the finest organic, small-batch wines and cava in a bucolic setting, you’ll also get to know the real people behind the cava and wine production in the Penedes.

 

During the whole day, you’ll learn about the local grapes and soil, as well as the process needed to elaborate the best wines and cava. All the wineries we’ll take you to are always 100% organic and you’ll also learn about organic winemaking. For lunch, we’ll take you to a local’s only restaurant to indulge in traditional flavors– prepare to feast like never before (our clients have sometimes told us that they got to meet 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!).

The experience will start directly at the Penedes, where you will be given a nice, comfortable e-bike (electric bicycle) for the whole day. We have prepared a bucolic itinerary to ride through the vineyards of the Penedes, going through calm and safe small roads. This will be the perfect occasion to appreciate the tranquility of Barcelona’s nearby countryside, to feel the fresh breeze, admire fantastic landscapes and connect with the land. This tour is definitely a must for all those who wish to enjoy a local, sustainable experience, or for those who are looking for a unique food and wine experience for their stay.

Our guide has been impulsing a project of connecting enotourism in his region to bike (and e-bike) visit. In an area where everyone uses cars, he developed a system to promote the use of bicyles. He has been able to install a bike rental in a train station, and he’s actually impulsing a project of connecting solar panels to the train station to provide renewable energy for the e-bikes.
