Wine tasting in the Penedes
In Penedes we have many activities to do. Wine tasting experiences of all kinds, from winery tours to unique experiences such as pairings, picnics, bike tours, and horseback riding in the countryside.
This incredible offer of experiences makes Penedes a desired destination if you are in Barcelona. An excellent opportunity to visit the Catalan countryside and taste its delicious wines and cavas. In this post, I share wine tasting experiences I like the most and I think are perfect for one day trip to the Penedes region. For its originality and good value for money.
Picnic at a family winery with wine tasting

Bycicle tour and wine tasting in the Penedes
A fantastic wine tour to enjoy with your family or as a couple. By safe bike lanes through the Penedes vineyards. Visiting the wineries that are on your way, and enjoying their wine.
A healthy way to enjoy wine tourism while having fun. That you could do with a mountain bike or electric bike. And adding other wine tasting experiences such as a ecobrunch with vineviews or a winery visit.

Horseback riding with wine and local food pairing.
Another activity that families and friends really like is this horseback ride with cava pairing in a nearby winery.
The experience begins with a one-hour horseback ride through the Penedes vineyards. A very nice horse ride, with views of the mountains of Montserrat and with horses very well cared for by a trusted equestrian.
After the ride, it’s time to cool off with a little cava and must for the children in the Cava Guilera winery. A winery specialized in cavas that produces long-aged cava. All paired with cheese and chocolate.
In addition, the good thing about this wine tour is that it is easily accessible by train. So you won’t need a car to move from the horse farm to the winery and from the winery to the train station.
And if you’d like, you can always complement the horseback ride with a picnic among vineyards.
> Horseback riding and cava tasting (accessible by train) €60
> Horseback riding with lunch in a winery €69
Vintage car ride through the Llopart estate
The last experience I would like to introduce you to is the Mehari ride offered by the Llopart winery. A highly recommended experience for groups and team-building activities. It consists of driving a vintage car (Mehari) through the vineyards of the Llopart estate. Located in the Ordal mountains, with more than 300 hectares of vineyards and nature offering amazing views over the region.
A combination of nature and good views is worth enjoying in a group with a one-hour ride. The experience ends at the Llopart winery, where you will get a tasting of 3 sparkling wines with views over the mountains of Montserrat.
