Join us for a wine lover’s day out to explore the gorgeous region of Alella, one of the oldest and quaintest wine regions in all of Spain. From a light aperitif to a three-course lunch pairing at a slow-food restaurant and plenty of tastings in between, immerse yourself in Catalan wine country on this fantastic day trip just a 30-minute drive outside the city. Thirst-quenching cava, crisp Mediterranean white wines, full-bodied reds… There is so much to discover, and better yet, just a stone’s throw from Barcelona!
Start off the morning by meeting your expert local guide and fellow wine-lovers in centrally-located Plaza Catalunya. Board your private air-conditioned transport with a professional driver and off you’ll go to the beautiful Mediterranean wine region of Alella. On the way, your guide will fill you in on the history of the area, and what to expect throughout the day.
In no time at all, you’ll arrive to the gorgeous village of Alella, where you’ll make the first stop at one of the area’s top organic wineries for a walk through the vineyards (sun-drenched and with sea-views) and a tour of their cellars to learn the ins-and-outs of Spanish wine production. After the tour, enjoy an exclusive tasting of six of their wines, from sparkling to sweet and everything in between!
After exploring the winery and sampling their wines, the group will stop for a traditional aperitif with the locals at an impressive wine cellar and tavern in the village. Discover the secret of Spanish vermouth and try your skills at drinking from the famous (and ancient!) porró wine jug before heading out to explore the narrow streets of charming Alella.
And of course, after we’ve whet our appetite, it’s time to sit down to a traditional Spanish lunch. What does that mean? Sit back, relax, and take things slow! The group will head to a beautiful restaurant that specializes in slow food and local products (everything sourced from 100 kilometres of the restaurant), where you will enjoy local wines paired with a three-course lunch, discovering the incredible local cuisine with each bite and locals wines with each sip.
At the end of the day, you’ll be chauffeured back to our meeting point in Barcelona, having enjoyed a delicious, relaxing and enlightening day trip out of Barcelona.
And as always with Devour Barcelona tours, your guide will give you a copy of our exclusive Devouring Barcelona mini guide, packed with all of our favorite places to eat and drink in Barcelona, so you’ll be eating well for the rest of your stay! And you’ll also get our special wine guide full of extra information about Spanish wines, so that you can continue the love affair back home! Spanish wine country is calling your name… join us!
