This is one of the best wine tours in Barcelona area to do when your available time is just a couple of hours and you would love to visit a nice winery, since Alella wine region is just 12 miles outside the city
Alella is the smallest D.O. (Origen Appellation) in Spain, with just 227 ha of planted vines. In a ride of just 25 minutes north from Barcelona, you will be surrounded by beautiful vineyards overlooking the Mediterranean sea and enjoying one of their wonderful wines.
The wine state that we visit is Alta Alella .This winery is the culmination of a family project that began more than twenty years ago with Josep Maria Pujol-Busquets and his wife Cristina Guillen. From the beginning the organic farming and the respect for the environment and nature have been the basis for making their organic wines and cavas in the DO Alella and DO Cava, with the will for transparency, being a true reflection of the “terroir” and the vintage.
On this Alta Alella wine tour we have the option to go by train or by car:
– by train: departing from Plaça de Catalunya station to El Masnou town, (26 minuts ride) and then 10 min ride by taxi to Alta Alella wine state.

The guided visit of the vineyard and cellar followed by the wine tasting of six of their wines and cavas takes about 1 and a half hour. This tour includes the assistance of an expert wine guide accompanying you all the time from your hotel in Barcelona, the guided visit and tasting of the winery and the transportation depending on which is your option: train or chauffeured car.
