- Explore 2000-year old vines with a trained viniculturist
- Taste a selection of fine wines at boutique, historic wineries
The Penedès region, just outside Barcelona, is perfect territory for wine-making: sandwiched between the sea and the mountains, it’s no surprise that some of Spain’s finest wines emerge from here. On this Barcelona gift experience you’ll travel out of the city by luxury SUV with a guide, touring two historic and family-run wineries where you’ll enjoy a selection of tastings, accompanied as is traditional by tapas. It makes for a sumptuous day-trip out of the city, into a rural landscape that seems to be an endless tapestry of vineyards.
Begin at a boutique winery that has been cultivating wines for an incredible 2000 years. Wander the vines by open-topped 4x4, visit the subterranean cellar and the tasting room with an expert winemaker, learning about the different varieties and the art of wine production, before trying an assortment of local specialities. Then it’s on to another winery that specialises in cava, the traditional Catalonian sparkling wine. Again you’ll tour the vines and the cellar, before snacking on tasty appetizers as you taste the wine. Whether you have an impressive collection yourself back home that you’re wanting to add to, or you’re just looking for something a little different to do in Barcelona, this gift experience has a nose for excellence.
