This fabulous private Barcelona food and wine tour, a Barcelona day trip less than an hour away, features Penedès, the second most important wine region of Spain. It is a fantastic setting for our private food and wine tours from Barcelona complete with wine tasting.
Led by an expert guide well acquainted with the region’s winemaking traditions, this private food and wine tour from Barcelona will take you on winding backroads through the vineyards of Penedès, home to hundreds of small wineries producing excellent sparkling wines, elegant whites and big terroir reds. Spread on low and gentle hills along the Mediterranean Sea, the Penedès wine region offers mainly untouched rural landscapes of vineyards, villages and wineries.
The first stop in our Barcelona food and wine tour is a small award-winning Cava producer, where you will learn about the tradition of sparkling wine production and sample some of the bubbly.
Penedès is often hopping with “Festes majors,” such as wine and food events, medieval fairs and parades. If there is something on the calendar, we’ll make a visit to a local festival to provide you with a taste of authentic Catalan countryside. Otherwise, we’ll make a stop to some other local cultural site of interest, followed by lunch at a traditional village restaurant, where you will learn about the cuisine of the region, typically featuring poultry.
The final stop of your Barcelona food and wine tour will be a visit to an innovative Bodega (wine cellar) producing a selection of high quality wines, which you will have an opportunity to taste.
