Wine and Cava Experience and Barcelona by Night

Start your adventurous day with a comfortable, scenic ride in a small and intimate group out to the Penedes region of Catalonia where you will stop at a family-run boutique winery in operation for 2,000 years.

You will be greeted by an expert winemaker who will escort you to the subterranean cellar where you will learn all about grape varietals, wine growing, wine making and proper storage. From there you will make your way to a stylish tasting room to sample 4 charming wines accompanied by gourmet delicatessen appetizers.

While on the grounds you will visit the traditional manor and take a ride out into the vineyards to learn the art and secrets of winemaking. Grab your camera, or phone, to capture stunning shots of endless vineyards along a rural landscape dotted with a Romanesque church.

Continue your day of discovery to a second cellar specializing in Cava, a sparkling wine with an unmistakable regional taste. This historical winery hosts cutting-edge facilities inside an ancestral estate. Descend into the Capella, or heart of the cellar, and discover a charming, candlelit room. Next, take a ride out to the vineyards followed by a tasting of four cavas paired with delicious gourmet bites.

Once back in Barcelona you will have some free time for lunch and to explore the city on your own or do some shopping before meeting back up with the group to see Barcelona at night.

Meet once again at the designated point in the evening, and once everyone is back together you will stroll along the Passeig de Gracia, one of Barcelona's emblematic streets, to view its modernistic architecture while learning the history of this vibrant city. Board a luxury minibus and ride along the seafront, past the centuries-old Columbus monument and up Montjuic Mountain with stunning overviews of the city. Be sure to spend a few minutes at the Magic Fountain to watch the water acrobats amidst a backdrop of light, color, and music.

Conclude your amazing day with a trip to the narrow streets of Ciutat Vella, Barcelona's Old City. While here, enjoy a cocktail in an exclusive sky bar as you savor 360 degree panoramic views of Barcelona's twinkling city lights, there is nothing better.
