Winery Visit #1:

Visit the famous Cava Winery Codorniu, located outside of Barcelona in Sant Sadurni D`Noia, the Penedes wine region. D.O. Cava, which has a long-standing tradition of wine-making. Its most widely distributed product is Cava, the local variety of champagne.

Winery Visit #2:
Jean Leon at the age of 19, with just a small suitcase for luggage, he embarked on a long and arduous journey that would take him to Paris, New York and finally to Hollywood. Years later, fortune would lead him to set up in partnership with James Dean to create a world-unique restaurant: La Scala in Beverly Hills. Known and respected in gastronomic and oenological circles, in 1963 he decided to embark on the adventure of creating the wine that would carry his name, Jean Leon.

The winery, situated at the heart of the Penedes region, combines tradition with the most modern winemaking techniques. It is acknowledged as having been one of the first wineries in Spain to have fermented white wines in oak casks. The new visitors centre is located at the heart of the estate and means that we can better welcome friends of Jean Leon wines. The design, by Domingo Triay, is inspired by 1960´s American architecture and is integrated naturally into the vineyard landscape following the curve of the mountainside.

Then after the winery visit we will visit Sitges a white town overlooking a blue sea, now an important tourist resort and it also has a medieval quarter, with impressive views over the Mediterranean, with its narrow, winding cobbled streets.
