El Penedes (Barcelona). Luxury gastronomic breakaway

THE GREAT PENEDÈS, A WINE-PRODUCING TERRITORY

We offer you an enotouristic and gastronomic weekend, full of sensorial experiences that will take you to other more classic, ancient and romantic times. It will be an unforgettable experience in the Upper and Lower Penedès (the Garraf, formerly the "Marina del Penedès")

Possibly one of the most interesting wine tourism routes in Catalonia and without doubt, one of the best wine routes in Spain.
 
We will start in Vilafranca del Penedés, the capital of catalan wine and cava, and end in the Mediterranean Sea (Sitges), following the route already started by the Romans where they loaded the wine amphoras to distribute them throughout their empire.

We will go on a private visit to one of the oldest wineries in Spain, Bodegas Torres and Bodegas Codorniu (the origin of Cava) and taste local products: Xató, Arbequina olive oil and rosta, as well as sweets: Catanias and Carquinyolis, bathed in Malvasia from Sitges. We will witness the latest generation of wine production, such as biodynamic and amphora wines, with the Xarello as their star grape, and thousand-year-old arbequina olive oil production.

The Great Penedès is a territory halfway between the Mediterranean and the mountain of Montserrat.
