On the way to to the beautiful Mediterranean wine region of Alella, 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 have made it to Alella! The first stop of the day is one of the area’s top organic wineries, where you’ll walk through the sun-drenched vineyards and enjoy brilliant views of the sea. You’ll visit their cellars to learn the ins-and-outs of Spanish wine production, and afterwards, enjoy an exclusive tasting of their wines!
Next, you’ll 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 porró wine jug!
And of course, after you’ve whet your appetite, it’s time to sit down to a traditional Spanish lunch. Sit back, relax and take things slow!

Finally, the main event! You’ll experience one of the most authentic Catalan winter celebrations, feasting on grilled spring onions called calçots (see more information below!) at a rustic 17th century restaurant that harvests its very own calçots. Then for the next course – a lunch of grilled meats and delicious Catalan favorites, all paired with local wines. Finally you’ll end with dessert and coffee!
What are calçots you ask? They are one of the region’s most authentic and special seasonal foods. Every winter Barcelona locals head for the countryside to feast on these delicious local spring onions which are grilled over an open flame, and eaten with a delicious special sauce. After stuffing themselves with onions, the locals then enjoy a barbecue of grilled meats and side dishes, all washed down with local wines. It’s a total feast!
