Wine tasting in a 10th century castle
An innovative young company that combines cultural and culinary tourism, Castlexperience offers daily tours from Barcelona to the 10th century Oller del Mas castle and vineyards, where you will learn about the wine-making process – as well as, of course, taste some of their cellar’s top vintages.
They offer many different experiences, starting with their flagship Montserrat & Wine day trip, a full day tour which combines a visit to Catalonia’s famous “jagged mountain” and its sacred monastery (a must see!), together with wine tasting at the castle and a traditional Catalan lunch. With amazing reviews in the travel media, this has fast become one of Barcelona most popular tourist activities.
Another is Golf & Wine, which also calls by Montserrat but not for too long, because you’re due to tee off on the castle’s 18 hole pitch and putt course. The day is rounded off with food and guided wine drinking.
One of their most affordable activities meanwhile is the Montserrat, Tapas & Wine experience, a half day tour which includes all the elements of their best-selling full day tour, but substitutes a rural lunch for some delicious shared tapas and gets you back to Barcelona in time for you to still do some more sightseeing in town.
All of their experiences run with a maximum of 15 people per guide, and their mini-buses which transport you to and from the centre are even WiFi-enabled. For more info on the above, and an even wider range of options check out their website.
