Penedés 4 and 1/2 hours

Half day Penedés cava winery tour from Barcelona

Penedés is a wine region with a rich tradition of wine making since the Roman Empire Times. It is located 46 km/ 29 miles south from Barcelona city. An area extended between the Catalan coastal hills and the narrow plains of the Mediterranean coast.

26000 ha (64000 acres) of Penedés Appellation (D. O. Penedés) where traditional grape varieties are still being cultivated (Xarel-lo, Macabeu, Parellada, Ull de Llebre…) next to other international noble ones that have been introduced and successfully acclimatized (Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Merlot and Pinot Noir). The grapes grow from the coast level up till 800 m (2600 feet) above the sea level.

 

The Penedés climate includes a wide range of microclimates, but generally speaking it is a typically Mediterranean one. The harvest usually starts late in August and it finishes late in October, depending on the ripening of varieties.

 

A very well known Penedés product famous around the world is the Cava, the high quality sparkling wine produced according to the “Mèthode Champenoise” also known as the “traditional method”. “Cava” is the name given to this sparkling wine made in Spain, where a 90% of its production comes from Catalonia, specially from Penedés area. The Cava is ruled by the D. O. Cava. (Cava Origen Appellation). 

 

Nowadays  other excellent sparkling wines producers have created a new brand : CORPINNAT , which is a collective European Union brand established with the aim of distinguishing  great sparkling wines made in the heart of the Penedès from 100% organic grapes harvested by hand and entirely vinified on the premises of the winery.
