We love to try out new places for our clients. This time we headed to the wine/cava area located at only 45 minutes from Barcelona.
After tasting at home the fantastic cava and wine from these two small wine and cava houses we decided it was about time to hit the road and pay them a visit.
With high hopes we arrived first at the cava cellar where we were not disappointed. On the contrary, this place was fantastic and the small tour given by Cristina (our always friendly and smiling guide) was very interesting. We were taken to all of the places of the property. The living room of this house was and is being used for small private and exclusive lunches.
Outside of the house they often organise small breakfasts or brunches. It’s really a lovely and peaceful place with amazing views of the Montserrat mountains. It is the perfect place for enjoy a good conversation with your colleagues/friends.
Cristina told us that the vineyards date back from 1385 (!). The production is small as they only use their own vineyards to be able to maintain the high quality standard they represent. Outside of Spain you will find their cava in deli or gourmet shops.
Afterwards we were invited for lunch at the restaurant located next to the vineyards. The lunch is as great as their cava; tasty Mediterranean dishes prepared by one of the best caterings in Catalonia.
With a full stomach and a slight delay we drove off to the next place, a winery at only 30 minutes from Sitges. This family owned winery that goes back to 1790 is specialised in ecologic wines.
Most noteworthy is that the sons Joan and Josep together with their wives (who are the oenologists) have translated their love for nature into natural wines. These wines are cultivated without any use of herbicides, pesticides or chemical fertilizers and furthermore adding biodynamic farming.
In conclusion, we recommend that you let us plan your visit to this wine house because it is really interesting to hear their way of working. We also loved the small fairytale garden they have where they can organise all type of events or tastings.
And of course we could not leave the winery without tasting some of their wines.
Cheers! See you soon!
