Penedès is the biggest and closest wine region to Barcelona. It is also one of the most interesting areas since they produce all kind of wines from different grape varieties (local and foreign), which gives a wide range of flavors.
This region is well known for white wines production, especially from the local grape Xarel·lo which gives fresh and slightly salty wines, full of complexity and vibrant acidity.
Penedès is also the home region of Cava, the famous Catalan sparkling wine. Dozens of little and medium producers are spread all over the territory willing to show the elegancy of the bubbles and the quality of their products.
We will start with an e-bike tour of 1.30h-2h around Sant Sadurní d’Anoia area, home capital of cava and heart of Penedès county. A private guide will explain about the viticulture, fauna and flora, history, working methods, grape varieties, etc.
The sommelier will select one of the best cellars in Penedès so you can have a unique experience. He will also take you for lunch to one of his favorite restaurants in the region, where to enjoy traditional and delicious gastronomy.
These are the cellars we usually work with:
– Jean Leon (wine) – Guilera (cava)
– Can Bas (wine) – Llopart (cava/wine)
We are looking forward to enjoy this wine tour with you!
