Today, Catalonia is one of the most developed wine-producing regions in Spain and Europe. Among the wine regions of Catalonia, Penedes is the cradle of Cava (local sparkling wine produced by the Champagne method) and Priorat, whose wines have become world elite in recent years, having overtaken the French ones from Bordeaux.
Tourists who want to experience the production of Spanish wines at best get a tour of two or three of the largest industrial wineries, such as the cellars at the Torres or Fresenet wineries, where tourists are bussed in and taken on an ongoing basis.
In our opinion, wine tourism has to be done a little differently
We have invested a lot of energy, time, and personal charm in finding and establishing contacts with small, old family wineries, as well as cheese, olive oil, and sausage producers working by hand and producing very few high-quality products.
We combine visits to wineries and cheese factories with visits to nearby interesting towns and attractions, as well as meals in traditional rural tavernas. Thus, a wine tour can be done as part of a special themed tour or as a complement to almost any other excursion in Catalonia.

Family wineries of Catalonia: wine tour from Barcelona
This wine tour allows you to spend an unforgettable day in the beautiful Catalan province, learning about the process of producing quality wines, tasting them in the company of the winemakers themselves, and trying the traditional dishes of the local cuisine.
During the guided tour, you will visit two small family wineries in the best wine-producing regions of Catalonia: Penedes, Priorat or Emporda.
Family-run wineries are ideal for visiting: there are no crowds of tourists, and the tour is led personally for you by either the owner himself or one of the winery's experts. The quality of their wines is superb because they are not mass-produced, but everything is done by hand and with love.
We will be surrounded by gorgeous scenery on the trip. In the middle of the day we are sure to take a break for lunch at one of the traditional restaurants, and walk around the tiny but very pretty winery town. Specific wineries to visit can either be selected by us or chosen according to your wishes.
