Create Your Own Cava
Cava tasting tour with a twist
During this fun and original activity you’ll travel to a family-run vineyard in an idyllic corner of the Penedes wine region, near Barcelona, where you’ll not only taste several different types of Cava – the region’s famous sparkling white wine – but you’ll also take part in the bottling process and create your own personal Cava.
Once you’ve selected your favourite blend of grapes you yourself will perform the ancient art of ‘disgorgement’, the final step in the wine’s production process before it’s ready for consumption.
This great day out is the most popular activity on Barcelona Life and not only includes the Cava tasting (three different types) and bottling, but also a tour of the vineyards, a look at the cellars and a fascinating insight into the production process.
The price is very reasonable at 42 euros per person, and includes free transport from the local train station of Lavern-Subirats (which is an easy 50 minute journey from central Barcelona) to the winery.
Plus of course you get to keep the personalised Cava which you bottled yourself (you can even design your own label!).
For a little extra you can also enjoy a delicious rustic lunch on the premises of the vineyard’s 1,000-year-old farm house, courtesy of the winery’s resident foodie and chef Ramon. A warm and gregarious host, he will rustle up a delicious Catalan meal that includes the seasonal salad, the famous pan amb tomaquet (tomato bread), cold cuts, cheeses, and sausages cooked with Cava, garlic and rosemary (grown in their garden). Not forgetting desserts and plenty more bubbly! If you can afford the additional €28 it is well worth it.
