Catalonia is one of Spain’s most prominent wine-producing areas, boasting 11 appellations of origin. Vines have been growing in Catalonia for more than 2,000 years, and today Catalonia produces 380 million bottles of wine a year, including cava, which accounts for half of this production.

On this day trip from Barcelona, you’ll first visit Bodegues Jean Leon in the middle of the Penedès region. You will go on a guided tour and taste two different wines at this award-winning winery.

Then head to Bodegues Torres, where you will learn more about the production of various wines. You will see that it takes hard work to produce a good wine. At this winery, you’ll enjoy tastings of three wines, as well as three cheeses of the region.

Finally, visit Caves Freixenet, the last winery of your tour. Here is where you will learn about the process of making cava. You’ll sample two cavas, as well as some delicious tapas.

Your guide will be with you throughout your tour, answering questions and providing you with interesting information about the wine region.

Excellent tour. It was well worth it. The wine was delicious and all of the tour guides were great. I would recommend packing a lunch or a protein bar and eating it on the bus. They provide snacks but nothing substantial.

Reviewed by: Katherine C, August 2014

I was in two minds as to whether to go on this trip as the local tour operator, who runs it, use the huge tour buses with really large groups with commentary given in at least two languages - and it is exhausting to listen to things twice. That said, the places we visited, Jean Leon, Freixenet and Torres were quite spectacular. We were treated like royalty with very (very) generous wine tastings and tours. At Torres we got to pair cheeses with three different wines and the tasting room, staff and snacks - not to mention the cava - at Freixenet was superb. Wouldn't hesitate to do it again.
