Organic Cava &  Wine Tour near Barcelona

Private visits with the winemakers

Premium organic wine tastings 

Authentic experience off the tourist radar


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, a local wine expert, you’ll spend a wonderful day tasting signature wines. And you’ll get to know the real people behind the cava and wine production in the Penedes wine region, as both winery visits will be offered either by the winemaker or the owner of the winery. 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 natural single-fermentation sparkling wine. Expect to discover not only the tradition of wine in Catalonia, but its most recent innovations as well. In total, no less than 8 tastings of the finest organic, small-batch wines and cava are included in this private Barcelona wine tour. This Penedes day trip includes a private lunch with a winemaker. Expect fantastic food and wine with a highly knowledgeable winemaker and lots of fun. This is a very unique, customizable experience- a must for wine lovers. 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. Above all, we’ll always make sure you get an authentic and personalized experience you won’t find in any of the large-scale tour companies. In conclusion, expect to meet great people and to taste fabulous 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. Make sure to request (and book) well in advance!

What they say about this experience:

"Amazing Experience! I don’t normally write reviews, especially glowing ones, but our one-day experience with Barcelona Slow Travel visiting wineries just outside of Barcelona was the highlight of our trip. This customized tour included wine tastings, behind the scenes tours, and visiting with knowledgeable staff. Attention to detail was obvious, including a fabulous three course lunch. If you are in Barcelona, you have to spend a day, or multiple days, with Barcelona Slow Travel. It is worth every penny." ~ Debbie "This was one of the most magical days we had in our 40 years of traveling (and that includes several visits to Barcelona). It is a classic “words cannot convey” experience, riding through the famed Penedes wine producing region with Albert, an expert guide (indeed, from a fourth generation wine and cava producing family). Albert was, without exception, the most knowledgeable and affable guide we’ve had the pleasure of meeting and touring with, thoroughly familiar with the local wineries, the wine producing traditions of the Penedes, and simply one of the most cordial, considerate, helpful and fun person we’ve ever met. And the tour, let’s put it simply: it was truly excellent! We had a long and wonderful day, that left us with intensely fond memories of not only the people but also the land of the Penedes. We hope to be able soon to return and spend more time exploring this wonderful region. Moltes grácies Albert for making it possible for us to experience the wineries and the towns of the Subirat area and Penedes region in a way not possible by any other means! It was truly a day we will never forget!!" ~ Wes "Highlight of our month in Europe and a wonderful way to complete our trip. If we had more time left on our trip I would definitely book in for the cooking class. We visited two wineries and it was great to spend time unhurried allowing time to have great conversations with a winemaker Pep and Marta from the second winery after lunch. We almost didn’t make the tour as I booked a babysitter for our toddler on the wrong day. I emailed Guillermo to inform we couldn’t take the tour at short notice & Guillermo came up with the solution of Cristina being our babysitter so we didn’t miss this experience. We are so grateful!!! And my daughter had her first swim in the Mediterranean with Cristina. I wanted to add this to my review so anyone reading this can appreciate they are very nice people who go above and beyond to ensure you have a great experience and memories. Guillermo – we enjoyed everything about the tour you prepared for us, your conversation and all that you shared with us about your personal values regarding food, sustainable living, farm to table and general outlook. Thank you for an incredible day. We genuinely hope to see you again when we find ourselves back in this region. All the very best to you and Cristina." ~ Hayley C.
