Take an afternoon break from Barcelona to taste Catalan wine
This afternoon tour takes you to the Oller del Mas Castle, at the foot of the famous Montserrat mountain. Over this 4-hour trip you will learn about the winery, wine production, and taste three premium wines with homemade cheese pairings. This is the ideal experience for wine-lovers who want to experience the Catalan countryside in a quick trip out of Barcelona.
Montserrat is the “magic mountain” of Catalunya, well-known for its jagged peaks and phenomenal views. Lesser known is that a couple minutes away from Montserrat is Oller del Mas, a 10th century castle that now serves as a 1000-acre winery and golf course, and the same family has lived there for 36 generations. The winery is not on the Montserrat mountain, though you can get a beautiful view of its jagged peaks from the castle.
Expert enologists will take you through the cellar and the vineyards, and explain the processes of grape-growing, wine production, and maybe even a couple of in-house secrets! Finally, they will guide you through a tasting course of three of the winery’s best wines, paired with homemade cheese.
