Description

A well-rounded day trip from Barcelona. We take you to Montserrat before the crowds so you’re guaranteed to touch the famous ‘Black Madonna’, then whisk you to Penedès, to explore a top-quality cava vineyard & meet the family that have run it for 4 generations.

Traveling by air-conditioned minibus with max. 14 other guests, you’ll arrive in Montserrat in one hour, entering just as the gates open so you’re among the first inside. Arriving any later means battling through long lines & irregular opening hours at the ‘Black Madonna’, and risking not seeing her at all. Your visit is guaranteed.

Your guide will give you a full tour of the abbey and cathedral, then give you 90 minutes to take the cable car up the mountain, shop at the small food market, or dip into the art gallery. Then it’s on to the Penedès region for a little self-indulgence.

The vineyard we visit is truly one-of-a-kind. Run by the same family for four generations (it’s the 70-year old patriarch of the family who still produces all 25,000 of their bottles), this is widely accepted as one of the region’s best cava producers. You’ll enjoy a relaxed lunch and multiple wine tastings, the highlight of which is their 10-year cava reserve. Your host will also give you an extensive tour of the property, explaining the production process (much the same as champagne) and even getting you involved in a little ‘riddling’.

Wonderful visit. Early morning start helped us avoid crowds and the views were spectacular. There was even a small market where you could sample some fantastic local cheeses. Our visit to the winery was amazing. Marta was a gracious host and the cava was delicious. Our guide for the day was Claudia who was informative and fun.
