What to expect

Experience a memorable day visiting three very different wineries showcasing the very best of Catalan wine and, of course, get to sample some of their most emblematic wines!

Discover one of the biggest and most iconic wineries in the region, in fact the very first, cava producer in the region: the family winery of Codorniu. Learn about the cava making process, and even stand in the very room deep underground where the very first bottle of cava was made over 150 years ago! One of the barrels still has bullet holes made by some careless soldiers from the civil war!

At the next winery taste cava considered to be one of the best sparkling wines in Spain, where the owners are proud to keep the true artisan process alive and limit the use of modern day machinery. Everybody working in the winery is directly or indirectly related to the family.

Although most famous for its cava, Penedes is far more than cava. In the afternoon visit an organic winery specializing in white and red still wine, where they produce excellent red wines made with Tempranillo, Pinot Noir, Garnatxa or Cabernet Sauvignon.

This might be the last stop of the day, but be prepared to continue sampling a variety of wines including red, white, rosé and of course, Cava.
