Nothing says romance like adventure, luxury, and good wine! This whirlwind experience begins with a pick-up from Barcelona and a 30-minute drive to La Roca Village. La Roca is one of Catalunya’s most famous shopping areas, known for its high-end boutiques at outlet prices. Once you’ve finished shopping, the adventure begins at our private helipad. After picking you up in the 3-or-5-seater helicopter, the pilot will take you to the helipad of an exclusive winery in the internationally famous wine region Alta Alella. On arrival, you’ll meet your hosts, who will give you a tour of the private vineyards and a stellar wine-tasting experience. Finally, we invite you to dine in the restaurant, where you will be treated to a sumptuous 3-course meal with accompanying wine. After dinner, you’ll be chauffered back to Barcelona, where you can marvel over the glamorous day.
In one of the more luxurious romantic activities in Barcelona, you and your partner will zoom all over Barcelona with your very own guide–and from the passenger seats of an exquisite Mercedes E Class car.
