A bicycle tour through the vineyards of an iconic wine region

posted in: luxury | 0
Spend a full day exploring the Penedés vineyards.

The Penedés wine region is characterised by its calm rhythm of life, reflected in its lush landscape, with country roads and paths stretching for miles – perfect for cycling through at your own pace. Primarily, the region is known for Cava – Catalonia’s own sparkling wine, although it also produces excellent white, red and rosé wines.

Our tour will take us past vineyards of large producers and small, family-run “bodegas” alike, before making a stop at a carefully selected bodega. There, you will be given a tour of the vineyard by one of the expert staff – who will talk you through the different stages of production. After having learned the process, the tour will end with a wine-tasting and the chance to buy a bottle (or two!).

All that cycling will have given you an appetite – so the tour ends with lunch at a traditional Catalan country-house – “una masia”, where you will have complete use of all the facilities – including a swimming pool.
