Create Your Own Cava Experience
During this Cava tasting tour in the Penedes, just outside Barcelona, you’ll learn about the production of Catalonia’s very own Champagne at a boutique winery. Your passionate hosts will give you a revealing tour of their millennium-old farmhouse and winery, including the vineyards and cellars, and you will get to taste three different types of artisan Cava made on the premises. Best of all you get to disgorge and personalise your own bottle of bubbly to take away with you and enjoy back home (as you reminisce about your time in Catalonia!). Those who want to stay longer in the Penedes can book a rustic lunch with the resident foodie, Ramon, who will gladly cook you up some regional cuisine.

Combine a day trip to Montserrat mountain with wine tasting during this full day tour that allows you to gorge on culture, natural beauty, food and wine all within the space of 10 or so hours. Daily departures from Barcelona take you to the sacred abbey nestled under the jagged peaks of this natural park, where you can explore religious, historical and cultural treasures, as well as take a short hike or cable car trip for sensational views. In the afternoon enjoy a four course meal of traditional dishes before walking across the picturesque vineyards of Oller de Mas castle and winery. The day finishes with a degustation of three delicious wines made on the premises.
Catalan Gastronomy Tour
This food lover’s tour of Barcelona takes you to the central but still authentic district of Sant Antoni, where you learn all about the evolution of Catalan cuisine, from using the Mediterranean and mountain ingredients to make its traditional dishes to how mind-bending ‘molecular’ gastronomy championed by Ferran Adria changed the way we eat. Along the way you’ll try 16 different food flavours, washed down with four local drinks – including wine, vermouth and Cava, all in the company of your knowledgeable guide.
