This exceptional gastronomic adventure takes you to the rolling hills of the Valley of Penedes, south of Barcelona. Penedes is known as Catalonia’s wine producing region and is home to Spain’s regal sparkling cava champagne industry. Here you’ll find 185 established bodegas, wineries, producing Merlot, Tempranillo, Pinot Noir, Monastrell, Carignane, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah (reds), as well as Chardonnay, Riesling, Gewurtztraminer, Chenin Blanc and Muscatel to name just a few. Many of these great vinos and cavas have not yet been discovered by American connoisseurs, but are already well known to their savvy European counterparts.

In the Valley of Penedes you’ll stay in lovely rustic accommodations right in the heart of the vineyards and close to historic towns and villages. During this exclusive gourmet and wine adventure, you’ll learn to cook great country catalonian dishes. When you return home, you’ll be able to share with friends all your new recipes and know just the right wines to accompany them. You’ll also visit some of the historic towns like Vilafranca de Penedes and Poblet. Your tour will end in sophisticated Barcelona, known as “The Paris of the South”. This Catalonian gastronomy adventure is designed to not only be a feast for the palate, but for the eyes, ears and hearts.
