Montserrat & Wine Tour

The unique mountain is located just outside the gorgeous wine region ‘Penedès’. A perfect combination for a day trip!

Combine nature with local vineyards

This unique mountain in Catalonia is located just outside the gorgeous wine region Penedès. A perfect combination for a day trip!

The Mediterranean wine region ‘Penedès’ is most famous for its Cava (Spanish sparkling wine!) but is also home to delicious reds and whites. We find historic wine estates, located in ''Masias'' (farmhouses) and others in stylish, modern properties.

Our visit includes a tour of the monastery highlights and basilica, peculiar stories and legends about 'La Moreneta', a black Virgin Mary that the monks have kept in their temple for centuries. I will include a simple hike where we can enjoy the amazing views and there will be some time to stroll the farmer's market with cheeses, honey, and other local products.

We will combine this magical place with a visit to a winery. Learning about the steps of Spanish wine-making and a tasting of the final product.

You can either choose a small family-run bodega or we can visit one of the leaders in Cava making.
