Wine and Cava route

Catalonia is one of Spain's top wine producing areas, boasting 11 appellations of origin. Vines have been grown here for more than 2,000 years so the locals definitely know a thing or two about wine. In this tour of the Penedès region, you will visit three wineries that showcase the best the area has to offer. Learn all about traditional and modern methods of producing wines and cava, finding out about the different varieties and then tasting them.

The tour takes you to three wineries: Freixenet, the world-famous producer of cava sparkling wine, Bodegas Torres and Bodegas Jean Leon. You will taste at least two wines in each winery so prepare for an enological extravaganza that will delight your palate. There will be also a stop for lunch (not included) where you can choose from a selection of excellent local restaurants.
