A day in the vine-covered hills south of Barcelona makes for a delightful and easy one-day getaway. The Penedès region is where Catalonia's Cava tradition was born, and where the best examples of these lovely sparklers are made––along with some spritely whites and fine reds. You'll taste with new appreciation as you learn what goes into making the best of these at an estate that dates to 1790 and has always practiced organic viticulture. Their flock of sheep fertilize the vines, their bees pollinate, and only nature does the watering. The perfect day in the Penedès includes a reservation at wine country grill––we'll get you to our favorite, one that's all about top-quality ingredients prepared with striking simplicity. And ends with a sunset stroll on the waterfront in Sitges.

  • A driver who picks you up at the local train station and ferries you throughout the day
  • Visit and taste at a respected, historic, family-owned, organic winery
  • Including a Cava as well as still wines, plus a taste of the vineyard's own olive oil and a "tentempié"—a bite to keep you on your feet
  • Lunch reservations at a superb, rustic local grill (with a great wine list)
  • Drive over to Sitges, a well-loved seaside town, to stroll off any excesses or café-sit
  • A personalized plan that details how to get to the wine country by local train from your hotel in Barcelona (or upgrade to have your driver take you a round/trip door-to-door)
