Lunch for groups in wineries near Barcelona
- Price: €45
- Included: winery tour + wine tasting + lunch
Undoubtedly one of the best ways to get meet your group of friends or colleagues is to sit down and share an amazing meal. Here you will find a selection of meals for groups in wineries near Barcelona. All have vine views, a relaxing atmosphere near nature and of course the best wine. You can also include a winery tour and learn about the process of wine and cava making. It is an original way to start the day and surely will allow your group to find lots of interesting topics to learn from.
There are 2 wineries that offer the winery tour together with the lunch and are not far from Barcelona. Let’s start with Giró del Gorner, a small winery more than 5 centuries old that has a varied production of wines and sparkling wines. It is near Sant Sadurní d’Anoia and includes a visit to the winery with a delicious lunch outdoors. The second one is Albet i Noya, a medium-sized winery that makes organic wine. It was the first one to do it in Penedes! And today you can visit and have lunch in their beautiful garden. Both are only 45 minutes by car from Barcelona, or one hour if you want to go by train and then rent a bike.
Vintage car tour through the Penedes landscapes.
- Price: from €80
- Includes: vintage car ride + sparkling wine tasting
If you are looking for something original to make with your group this experience is perfect for you. It consists of driving a vintage car, a Mehari, through the vineyards of the Llopart winery. A one-hour tour that explores the 140 hectares of this well-known winery estate. Llopart, is one of the most prestigious wineries in the Penedes. This 6 centuries old farmhouse has beautiful views over the wine region and the mountains of Montserrat Montserrat. In addition, the Mehari ride ends with a tasting of 3 sparkling wines in the winery. On a nice terrace where to enjoy the best views of the Penedes.
Ride an e-bike with your friends to a winery.
- Price: from €65
- Included: electric bike ride + wine tasting + lunch in a winery
Another very pleasant way to spend the day with a group of people is to rent some bicycles and make a tour through the Penedes vineyards. I recommend renting the bicycles at Bikemotions. They are very professional and have a large fleet of bicycles. They are also next to the Laver Subirats train station. Making it very convenient for public transportation. I recommend riding an electric bicycle, as it makes the ride more comfortable since it usually goes over some hills.
There are several routes, one of my favorites is the route that passes through the wineries Eudald Massana Noya and Albet i Noya. It is a short tour of one hour and a half that discovers a beautiful side of the Penedes, with wine tasting and lunch in a winery. Just one last information, do make the reservation well in advance if you would like to include the lunch in Albert i Noya especially on weekends. It is a well-known winery with a high demand. Another option is to leave it in our hands. We are a wine tourism agency that gets the best prices for our clients and takes care of all the details of the reservation.
Horseback riding for groups and cava tasting
- Price: €60
- Includes: horseback ride + tasting of 3 cavas
For those who like nature and animals, I recommend this activity of horseback riding with a tasting of cavas and cheeses. The ride will take place in one of the most beautiful places near Barcelona, the Ordal mountains. Where we find the Excelsior riding school, just a 10-minute walk from the Lavern-Subirats train station. I have chosen this equestrian center because the horses there are very well cared for by Mar, the person in charge. The tour is also very enjoyable. going through the vineyards of Ordal and offering magnificent views over the Montserrat mountains. An idyllic place to enjoy the Penedes at any time of the year.
Once the ride is finished, the experience continues with a cava tasting in a small winery nearby, located just 15 minutes walk from the equestrian center. Cava Guilera winery will welcome you for a tasting of 3 sparkling wines paired with cheese and chocolate. A family winery that has 3 generations of experience and has been dedicated exclusively to the production of long-aged cavas. Obtaining cavas of a high level, a delight for the most exquisite palates. This is also a perfect activity to attain by train. Just a few steps from the Lavern train station, connecting Barcelona with direct trains. This activity can also be made with a meal in a winery. See horseback riding with lunch in Giró del Gorner.
Barcelona historical tour with wine tasting
- Price: from €50
- Included: guided tour of Barcelona + tasting of 5 wines
Finally, if your thing is to meet up for cultural activities in Barcelona, then I recommend this historical tour through the Gothic Quarter with wine tasting. An exciting experience where you will learn a lot about the city of Barcelona and Spanish wines. With an hour-and-a-half walking tour that will take you to discover the best-kept secrets of the city. A walk that can be customized to ensure the best possible experience.
After the tour, your guide will take you to Vivinos. A wine bar located in el Born neighbourhood. I really like this place because they do very informative wine tastings, not a regular wine tasting. This is a well explained tasting of 5 wines from different regions of Spain. With an explanation of each wine region and accompanied by a cheese and charcuterie plate (vegetarian option available). A great experience if you want to get to know this wonderful city and delight yourself with good Spanish wines.
