This unique wine tour from Barcelona take you to the homeland of some of the most wonderful sparkling wines. Our extensive wine connections, mutual respect and friendship after many years in the wine business allow us to go the extra mile in every wine tour. Join us for a real meaning of an exclusive cava tour.
Wines of exceptional quality, prestigious around the world, are produced in this region of Catalonia, located between the plains of the Mediterranean coast and the nearby mountains. Cava is the magic wine and Sant Sadurní d’Anoia is the world capital for this product, and the traditional coupage of unpronounceable macabeu, xarel·lo and parellada grapes is responsible for this superb but underrated wine.
A handful of meticulous, quality-conscious cava producers like Recaredo, Gramona, Mestres, Bohigas, Llopart, Castellroig, Juvé &Camps and Raventós i Blanc are determined to explore the limits. In the process, they hope to change fixed opinions that consign cava to the bargain bin. It may not take much more than a bottle of Brut Nature Gran Reserva – over 36 months of aging – to make that case. It’s feathery light, snappy yet elegant, lightly floral with a welcome touch of bitterness, a delicious sparkling wine with finesse.
Our goal is to give you access to a unique world, learn all secrets of its process and witness first-hand the passion and history behind cava.
You will visit family run businesses with fascinating stories. This is a unique opportunity to meet some of the most influential families and try some of the best worldwide sparkling wines.
