Description

Head to the Penedes wine-growing region, which boasts the widest varieties of grape of any other wine-growing region in the world. This tour will give you special access inside the family-owned winery! Discover the impressive underground cellars, accompanied by an insightful commentary from our expert guide explaining how the winery runs on organic agricultural practices.

Learn how the iconic wine of Barcelona is produced, from the first pressing of the grapes to the fermentation of wine in the cellars by the family owner himself! He will explain to you the traditions of his forefathers that they meticulously safeguard and keep alive. Grab the opportunity to taste and sample the products that have reached worldwide fame!

After experiencing the wine culture of Barcelona, you will be introduced to a human cultural practice, the Castellers. This time-honored Catalan tradition was listed as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO and is on its way to becoming a classic symbol of culture in the country.

The human towers tradition has been practiced for more than 200 years, and is one of the liveliest expressions of Catalan culture. You will make the acquaintance of over 200 Catalan Castellers (human tower builders) of all ages, including brave 5-year-old enxanetas that climb to the very top of the tower! The older veterans comprise the La Pinya, the human tower's solid base.

This expression of teamwork, fun and creativity highlights the wonderful morals of Catalan culture, earning its rightful place as an honored practice flocked to by people from all over the world. Get the chance to be part of the human tower yourself! We will brief you with a practice session where you will wear a traditional Castell costume and with the help of an instructor, be a part of the La Pinya and make history!
