Day by day itinerary

DAY 1:
BARCELONA
- Start with a short drive from Barcelona to El Penedes wine region
- We visit a very small vineyard in Alt Penedes, which is the upper part of the Penedes wine region, about 40 minutes southwest of Barcelona.
- Alt Penedes is known for its smaller-batch, more specialized wines, and this vineyard is no different. After a short trip out to the fields for a brief history of the wine region, the grapes grown here and the processes used, we go into the facilities for an explanation of the equipment used to elaborate the wine, the storage processes and the bottling methods.
- Then we head down to the cellar for very generous tastings of a white, a Cabernet-Merlot rosé, a Cabernet reserve red, a natural brut reserve cava and a moscatel (sweet wine).
- All of this is enjoyed over a meal of traditional Catalan food...select cured meats and cheeses, olives, bread with tomato and olive oil, and Spanish tortilla (sort of like a quiche).
- After departing from the first winery, we`ll stop off at a second small vineyard for a short tour and 3-4 product tasting of their fantastic wines and cavas
- Return to Barcelona
