Introduction

Excursion to visit the famous Cava Winery Cordorniu, 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.

The Codorni­u family´s wine business goes back to the middle of the 16th century. A document of that period states that the family had several machines and implements relating to the wine industry. In 1659 Anna Codorniu married Manual Raventos and the families, each with a long wine tradition, were united. Years later, in 1872, Josep Raventos produced cava for the first time in Spain using the Traditional Method and established a completely new industry in the Penedes region.

The imposing winery which houses the Codorniu cellars was built by the architect Josep Puig i Cadafalch who, together with Gaudi­, was one of the outstanding exponents of the school of modern architecture. His designs, of great originality and conceptual audacity, today form part of Spain´s architectural heritage and are the subject of major academic studies. It is not surprising, therefore, that the Codorni­u cellars were declared a National Monument of Historic and Artistic Interest in 1976, in view of their pure modernist style.

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.
