If you want to get away from the boisterous Barcelona for a day, I recommend you a visit to the winery area of El Penedès, just 45 minutes away from Barcelona city, and specially, we encourage you to take this experience with El Molí Tours, located in Torrelles de Foix, an old village with a lot of charm next to Vilafranca del Penedès.
Paddy, a good irish friend who has been settled in this wine and champagne productive area for the last 25 years, will take you around the colourfull and rich fields and wineries established there. He will guide you through and explain you all that deserves to be told. During the tour (or even after), you will also be able to do tastings of the most delicious wines harvested in the Penedès lands. If you ask for a traditional meal, he will most likely take you out to eat in a definetly memorable place.
To get there, you can take the train to Vilafranca (from “Catalunya” Metro Station -3 minutes away from La Rambla apartments– or from “Sants” Metro station -10 minutes away from Filmoteca Sarrià apartment-) in just a 50 minute ride, and Paddy will come pick you up at the station. However, if you rather, you can arrange with him to come pick you up in Barcelona as well.
To complement the getaway day, if it happens to be a Monday, Wednesday or Friday evening, you could also stop by at El Figarot, which is Castellers de Vilafranca‘s practice place, which will definetly make your jaw drop with their human tower constructions, I guarantee!
Once there, you will discover the area biking around the beautiful surroundings.
Let you flow along with the Penedès wines and dream awake with the dreamy skylines and forestry vegetation mixed with the farming and crops!
