This day trip is fun, informative and educational, as well as a very unique opportunity to try a variety of fabulous wines and cavas (which are Spanish sparkling wines) and have a ... moregreat meal in an amazing environment. We visit two small vineyards in Alt Penedes, which is the upper part of the Penedes wine region, about 40 minutes southwest of Barcelona. Alt Penedes is known for its smaller-batch, more specialized wines, and these vineyards are no different. The morning stop will consist of a brief tour, as well as a presentation of the region and wines, followed by a 3-product tasting. Next we'll drive a short distance to the second vineyard, where we'll begin with a short trip out to the fields for a brief history of the wine region, the grapes grown here and the processes used, then we'll go into the facilities and down into the cellar for an explanation of the equipment used to elaborate the wine, the storage processes and the bottling methods. Afterwards, we head to the tasting room for very generous tastings of white, reds and a reserve cava. All of this is enjoyed over a meal of traditional Catalan food...select cured meats and cheeses, olives, tomato salad, bread with tomato and olive oil, and Spanish tortilla (sort of like a quiche). Of course, all that you taste is available for purchase from the vineyards. The price of this trip is 105 EUR / person, departing at 10am and returning to the city around 6pm. Included in the price are transport in a touring van, a very knowledgeable and personable, English-speaking guide, visits and tastings at two small vineyards, a great traditional lunch and bottled water available in the van.

Our wine trips are very unique in many ways, one of which is the fact that we only take a maximum of eight people on each trip (as with all of our day trips), ensuring that the day is relaxed, personal, flexible and fun. Additionally, we go to small wineries that are not visited by busloads of people. We are almost always the only guests at these establishments during our scheduled visit, which enables us to have a very special visit, tasting and meal, and ensures that we have the undivided attention of the winemakers for any questions that one might want to ask.

Important: There would be a surcharge of 15 EUR / person if you ended up being the only two clients on any non-private day trip. Although this is not likely (especially between April and October), it would be necessary in order to cover the guide fees and other costs that would normally be covered by having more than two clients on the trip. The positive side of the supplement is that you end up getting a private tour at a fraction of the normal private touring price!

After picking you up from our central meeting point at 8:30am, we'll drive 1h 45m to the incredibly beautiful and rugged Priorat wine region, with it's steep hills covered from top ... moreto bottom in craggy vines. First on the agenda is a visit the tiny village of Morera de Montsant to take in the stunning views at the foothills of Montsant. From here you will be able to get an overview of the entire region and your guide will give you a bit of an orientation. Afterwards, we'll duck into a small winery for a three-product tasting of terrific Priorat wines.

The next stop is the village of Gratallops, where we will head for a private tour and tasting at the renowned Clos Figueres winery and estate. This winery is run by Christopher Cannan, who is known for being one of the first in the region (along with Alvaro Palacios, Rene Barbier and Josep Lluis Perez) and is quite a charming character. Their wines are produced with their own grapes from old vines, without watering the vines and without using insecticides or any other synthetic products. While there, you'll enjoy a fantastic, traditional lunch in the winery.

After lunch, we'll drive to the tiny village of Porrera to meet with Paco Castillo-Serrano of the family-run Clos Dominic winery to tour their beautiful vineyards and taste their fabulous vintages. This old-vine vineyard (with many vines over 100 years old) was purchased by Paco and his wife, Dominic, in 1998 when they began to fulfill their dream of creating their own wines. To this day, they manage and harvest their vineyards with help only from family and friends. Once we finish our visit and tasting with Paco, we'll begin the drive back to Barcelona, arriving to the city around 7-8pm.

This price of this all-inclusive small group day trip is 190 EUR / person. Included in the price are transport in one of our modern touring vans, a very knowledgeable and personable, English-speaking guide, a great traditional lunch, and generous wine tastings at three fantastic wineries. This day trip is more expensive than our D.O. Penedes tour because the Priorat region is much more exclusive than other Catalan wine regions and as a result, the winery visits and meals are more expensive, as well. Winery visits and tours are always private and are nearly always attended and/or led by the wine maker. Additionally, as you may already know, the wines in this region are more expensive due to the extremely harsh growing conditions, low-yielding vines, and harvesting carried out by hand, which is very labor-intensive, but the wines...and the day...are well worth it!

Explore the magnificent array of South Africa's signature bubbly (MCC) “Méthode Cap Classique” and Sparkling Wines famous Stellenbosch and Franschhoek winelands have to offer. ... more

Proudly biodynamic and organic, your first stop is Longridge – one of the leading wine estates in Stellenbosch. Situated at the foot of the Helderberg mountains, the estate has stunning views from the restaurant gardens and tasting room that draw the eye all the way to Cape Town and the magnificent silhouette of Table Mountain. Enjoy their unique selection of Methode Cap Classique wines made by Jasper Raats, already legend in the industry despite his relative youth. An alternate stop for the morning would be another organic and family owned and run estate, Villieria for an equally impressive MCC tasting and pairing)

The Méthode Cap Classique at historic Boschendal estate is crafted from classic varieties in the time honoured traditional method with the second fermentation taking place in the bottle as it ages. The estate itself is magnificent and spans many hectares in the breathtakingly beautiful Franschhoek valley. It boasts vibrant gardens growing organic vegetables that supply the onsite restaurant, The Werf, with healthy produce daily.

Your third stop takes you to Le Lude, the first winery in South Africa to produce wine in the Agrafe method – the second fermentation (that produces the bubbles) occurs while the still wine is under cork instead of a crown cap (most other production methods require the winemaker to remove the crown cap first, then add a mixture of alcohol and sugar and then add the cork). Winemaker Paul Gerber, a former math teacher, takes an analytical approach to making bubbly and believes that the three years spent undergoing the second fermentation on cork enables a fuller mouthfeel and texture, which exhibit savoury flavours that are only found in other MCCs after spending significant time in the bottle. See if you can taste the difference for yourself!

End your day with a well earned and final tasting at Môreson Family Winery, another proudly family owned and run wine estate. Apart from the already stellar selection of still wines at Môreson, Clayton Reabow, the winemaker, produces a superb range of excellent MCC and sparkling wines named after the estate’s friendly Weimaraner, Miss Molly.
