Ready to leave the city and join a wine tour far away from the hustle & bustle of Barcelona? This is your tour! We will introduce you to the Penedès region, one of Spain´s most famous wine regions and the region where CAVA is produced . We will discover Castell de Pontons, my family´s property since 1336, which has been producing wine since the early middle ages. We will also learn about the history of wine making in the region that dates back to the Roman Empire. We will walk to the different vineyards, visit the cellar and finally proceed to the Castle´s main hall for a traditional wine tasting paired with artisan Catalan tapas produced on site. During the you will have the chance to enjoy a very artisanal and genuine wine tasting, different from commercial wineries. You will also have the chance to pair the wines with local home made foods so you have a full local food & wine experience. Before the end of the tasting we will be playing a sensorial game with Albert, the castle caretaker & farmer, who will show you the magic of essential oils through a sensorial game.
