Catalonia is a land of wines and cavas. The cultivation of vineyards was introduced in our land many centuries ago by the Greeks and although this production has gone through several crises, today it is the base of the economy of many Catalan villages, exporting to many countries in the world.
In 1872 the first bottle of cava in Catalonia was opened, following the champenoise method. If you want to know more about the production of wine and cava, and know what the difference between the two products is, don’t miss the tour of some of our wineries and cavas.
The Penedés area is near Barcelona, known worldwide for the richness of its vineyards. Its mild climate and the proximity of the sea make the production of grapes of a high quality. It is in the Penedés where many of the great wineries and cellars such as Codorniu, Freixenet and Torres are . Some others are small and family-run and with a smaller production that make them very interesting.
This excursion can be done in half a day, visiting a tailored winery or cava. But it can also be combined with the excursion to Montserrat or Sitges and spend the whole day outside the city.
