The Denomination of Origin Penedès wine region which is renowned for its sparkling cava production as well as for its wide variety of still wines. This area produces most of the cava in Spain.
You will visit two cellars; the 1st one where we have a cava making experience with a cava taste, and complement the day with a second wine cellar and wine taste, as to compare and gain a better insight of the region.
In the 1st cellar you will have a hands-on experience. Dressed up with a coat, helmet and gloves to handle tools and become an artisan for the job of making your our own sparkling wine bottle of cava by awaking it from its long sleep, uncorking it carefully avoiding spillage, corking it back up using all the tools required and wrap it all yourself.
We also visit a 2nd wine cellar chosen for its innovative Organic wine making process, whilst enjoying of the most extraordinary view of their organic vineyards close by. This wine cellar was the first organic wine cellar in Spain, following strict rules at planting and harvest time, adhering to the organic wine making guidelines.
A delicious full three course Catalan lunch will follow at a local establishment, run for generations of the same family.
