Nothing says summer like wetting your palette with a glass of crisp wine while overlooking a vineyard in Catalunya, with the sounds of the Mediterranean playing in the background. If this is an experience you find yourself daydreaming about when you should be answering work emails, consider a visit to a privately-owned family winery to enhance your next trip to Barcelona.
Located on the grounds of a natural reserve just 30 minutes outside of Barcelona, this winery makes 100 percent-organic wines from 17 different grape varieties. Some of its wines and cavas have been crowned gold medalists at the most prestigious competition of its kind: the International Wine Challenge. There’s no doubt: this visit is your exclusive ticket to the world of fine wine and Spanish gastronomy.
Wine isn’t all this activity boasts, however. Your guide promises to be an expert in the field, living and breathing every detail that goes into the production of Catalan wines. Thanks to him or her, the tour of the winery itself is like no other.
Customised for each group, no one experience is ever the same. After exploring the working buildings of the winery, you’ll move on to the grounds, bouncing around in a 4×4 to get the full effect of the unexpected twists and turns of the land. A stop at a secluded panoramic viewpoint can be organised for you and your party, offering the chance to relax and taste some wine. From the salty sea breeze and the towering almond trees, to the winding green vines and juicy grapes all around, this place has all the makings of a picture-perfect escape.
After this is said and done, you’ll have worked up quite an appetite. Allow our private chef to take care of that for you. On his terrace kitchen, overlooking the vineyard and the sea, you can indulge in a five-course meal with wine pairings, tailored for you and made right before your eyes. The ingredients used in each plate are sustainable, organic and strictly seasonal, and as your chef works with them, be sure to pick his brain for his opinions on the growing gastronomic scene in Catalunya.
